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

The election to the 60-member Tripura Assembly would be held on February 18.

The non-tribals, who constitute about 66 per cent of Tripura's population, are increasingly anxious over the state's integrity following the BJP's alliance with the IPFT. "The assurance of implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendations for the Tripura government employees is also a "jumla" as many BJP state governments did nothing about it", added Dhar, also the CPI-M state secretaryy. Shah, who is in the state to campaign for the upcoming assembly elections scheduled to take place on February 18, further alleged that Congress is trying to divide the anti-CPM vote to prevent BJP from coming to power. "This is what Manik Sarkar government has left Tripura as", the BJP president said.

"Seeing the atmosphere and campaigns after visiting various constituencies, I can rest assured that the BJP would form the next government in Tripura and it would be the 20th BJP-ruled state", Shah said.

On Sunday, when Jaitley released the BJP's manifesto-Vision Document Tripura 2018--it was clear that the saffron party was all out to woo the voters.

"After forming the government in Tripura, the BJP will set up special economic zones (SEZs) for different sectors like food processing, bamboo, IT textiles", Jaitley said.
