Amit Shah exudes confidence of forming govt in Tripura

IPFT Cadres Attack CPI(M) Candidate and Activists in Tripura, 5 Hurt

"Compared to other smaller states, Tripura is lagging far behind in many sectors", he said, also alleging Left party cadre and party-nominated employees dictated governance.

"However, it would not be an obstacle for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to come to power in the state after the next week's assembly elections", Mr Shah told the media in Agartala.

"Congress is practically helping the CPI-M (Communist Party of India-Marxist) by splitting the non-Left vote share in Tripura".

From Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah to finance minister Arun Jaitley, top leaders of the saffron party are busy campaigning in the state ahead of the all-important polls.

Tripura's leftist government had recently alleged that the Modi government was "lackadaisical" when it came to the matter of allotting funds to Tripura. "Due to their misrule Tripura stands last, when it comes to development", Shah said in a press conference in Agartala.

The 28-pages Vision Document released by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitely here today swear 10 point commitments for the voters of the state.

Tripura would be made a logistic hub for transportation in the entire northeastern region due to its proximity with Bangladesh and the ports in that country, Jaitley said. The BJP is contesting in 51 seats while its alliance partner Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT) has fielded candidates in nine seats. The party promised to implement 7th central pay commission for state government employees, free smart phone to youths, minimum social security pension of Rs 2,000 and minimum wage of Rs 340, punish all accused of Rose Valley scam.

Tripura Pradesh Congress working president Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma, who was also present on the occasion, said the BJP's vision document was full of "false promises".

The Left was also in power between 1978 and 1988.

The Left Front has been ruling the state for almost 25 years continuously but Tripura lags behind in distribution of drinking water to households, healthcare services, power supply, infrastructure and attracting investments, he said.

The state will go to polls on February 18 and result will be announced on March 3.
