BJP Will From Next Government in Tripura, Says Amit Shah

BJP Will From Next Government in Tripura, Says Amit Shah

Today, Shah said to the crowds, the party wants to change the politics of violence in the state. "Authorities here work under CPI (M)'s pressure", Shah added. In his address, Amit Shah made a string of promises to the people of Tripura, including smartphones for youths, and implementation of the seventh pay commision for the government employees.

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

Shah is on a two-day visit to Tripura and will also hold rallies in Chawmanu and Teliamura. He promised to make the state a model one if his party is voted to power. In a state where the government is among the highest job generating agency, the lure of higher pay scales serves as a big pull for the state's employed as well as the job aspirants. "The government of "Lal Bhai" and its cadres have looted Tripura for 25 years in the name of development..." The poverty and unemployment, however, increased in its 25 years reign.

Polling will be held for the 60-seat Tripura assembly on Sunday.

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI-M) has a strong foothold in Tripura and is in power for the past 25 years. He also accused him of helping the ruling government headed by Chief Minister Manik Sarkar to come back to power.

Coming down heavily on the CPI-M-led Left Front government, the BJP chief said that following the Finance Commission's recommendations, the Tripura government has received Rs. 18,000 crore and Rs. 950 crore was sanctioned by the central government in different projects and schemes.

Apart from this, there are three major tribal parties in Tripura- the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT), Indigenous Nationalist Party of Tripura (INPT) and National Conference of Tripura (NCT).
