BJP is going to fight the Tripura assembly elections in alliance with IPFT. This message was jointly given by the leaders of the two parties in the press conference on Saturday evening.
The IPFT has agreed to contest five seats in the upcoming assembly elections. Incidentally, in the 2018 assembly elections, the IPFT contested in 9 seats and won 8 seats.
Chief Minister Professor Dr. Manik Saha said on the day that the BJP had formed an alliance with the IPFT in 2018 through a common minimum program and had won and formed the government. During the five years of the coalition government, the two parties have jointly worked for the development of the people. Therefore, in these five years, they did not raise their voice about the basic demand of IPFT for Tipraland. Hence, once again BJP will contest elections in alliance with IPFT.
He said that the IPFT will contest in five seats in the upcoming assembly elections. They have agreed to field candidates in Takarjala, Ramchandraghat, Asharambari, Kanchanpur and Jolaibari constituencies.
In this regard, Youth IPFT president Shukla Charan Noyatia said, “Many thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for selecting the former president of the party late NC Debvarma for the posthumous Padma Shri. The IPFT has agreed to remain in alliance with the BJP on the directives of the party’s central committee and current president Prem Kumar Riang and general secretary Prashant Debvarma for the assembly elections. Accordingly, the party will contest in five seats”
He said that Jayanti Debbarma, daughter of late NC Devavarma, will contest in Asharambari constituency.
On this day, the state BJP president Rajib Bhattacharya made it clear that the BJP believes that the welfare of the people is the first priority for the development of the state. Therefore, people are seeking overall development of the state through development.
He clearly said that BJP does not support Greater Tipraland or Tipraland.
Notably after this alliance door for TIPRA Motha to alliance with IPFT has been closed.
