Amit Shah clarifies government's 'lukewarm' attitude to Tripura

Tripura Elections BJP Releases Vision Document Promises Free Smartphones And SEZs

The BJP is contesting for 51 out of the 60 Assembly seats, while its ally Indigenous Peoples Front of Tripura (IPFT) is fighting in nine seats.

In less than a week Tripura goes into polls for an election that is probably going to be the most important one since 1988, BJP president Amit Shah said that BJP will comfortably win and for the first time it will form government in the state.

"Change the CPM government in Tripura on 3rd March, I assure that 7th pay commission will be implemented for government employees from 4th March, 2018", Shah said while addressing a press conference. Indirectly accusing Rahul Gandhi, the BJP chief said that the Congress president had put up candidates to cut into other's vote. "The government of "Lal Bhai" and its cadres have looted Tripura for 25 years in the name of development..."

Tripura's leftist government had recently alleged that the Modi government was "lackadaisical" when it came to the matter of allotting funds to Tripura.

There are 12 Parliamentary Secretaries in the Manipur government and if these MLAs are disqualified it is hard to believe n whether the government will survive or not, Nara said.

"In the 25 years of CPIM, more than 7 lakh people are unemployed".

In Tripura, only the fourth commission pay scales have been implemented so far, an issue that the BJP has built into an election issue and promised to deliver seventh pay commission scales.

"All together 8 Congress MLAs had joined BJP but at state Assembly house these congress MLAs still sit at the congress lobby which is the main opposition party", Nara said.

Raising the party's slogan, "Chalo Paltai" (Let's change the government), Mr Shah said, "Where has all this extra RS 18,000 crore gone? I dare Sarkar to give an account of this money in his public meeting".

The ruling Left Front is in power for 25 years in Tripura.

Mr Madhav said Finance Minister Arun Jaitley would visit Agartala on February 11 and release the BJP's "vision document" for the state.

He stated that in Tripura, birth anniversaries of Stalin & Lenin are celebrated but not of Tagore & Vivekanand.
