Must read

Agartala, Jan 30: Tripura deputy chief minister Jishnu Dev Barma has expressed confidence that BJP will retain power in the state for the second time.

Speaking to reporters, Jishnu Dev Barma said, “Tripura is important for us and we will retain Tripura for second consecutive time. In last five years, we have worked for the development of the state after CPI-M’s misrule for last 25 years. CPI-M has created a reign of terror in the state through violence.”

“It’s an unholy alliance between Congress and CPI-M in Tripura which will not work. Both the parties have betrayed their cadres by forming the unholy alliance. They are the two sides of the same coin,” the Deputy CM said.

He further said, “Violence is the trade mark of CPI-M. Earlier, Bengali and tribal people were living peacefully in Tripura but in 1980 communal violence started in the state. The CPI-M regime supports violence and through (that) they regained power in the state and ruled (it) for 25 years. In 2018, they (were) defeated in the hands of BJP.”

When asked about TMC being a major contender in Tripura polls, the Deputy CM dismissed the party saying, “TMC is coming in Tripura since 1999, they open shutter and see the result and go to Kolkata. They are not a factor for us in this election.”

“Without ideology (a) party cannot survive. We are a party who believed in ideology,” he said.

The state will go for polls on February 16 and the result will be declared on March 2.
