Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday appealed to the electorate in Tripura to oust the Left Front government led by Chief Minister Manik Sarkar and said the state government led by the Communists did not give the poor people any opportunity to become self-reliant.
While addressing a public gathering at Kumarghat HS School on Tuesday, Adityanath said, “The Communists (Left Front) have not given any opportunity to the poor to become self-reliant during their rule in the State.
Arriving in Tripura on a two-day visit, Adityanath on Tuesday offered prayer at Udaipur Tripureshwari Temple.
While offering prayer, Adityanath also took blessings from the Goddess.
The chief priest of Gorakhnath Temple at Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh launched his poll campaign in Tripura after performing puja at the Gorakhnath Temple in Padmapur, a suburban area on the outskirts of Dharmanagar town in North Tripura district.
“If BJP comes to power in Tripura, it would ensure that all welfare schemes of the Centre reach the poor, even in the farthest corner of the Northeastern state,” he added.
Adityanath, who arrived in the State on Monday to boost BJP’s election campaign for the Tripura Assembly election slated for February 18, said the Left Front government has failed to reap the benefits of various Central schemes in its past 25 years of its rule in Tripura.
