Tripura chief minister (CM), Biplab Kumar Deb, along with Tripura Assembly deputy speaker Biswabandhu Sen inaugurated the organisational meeting of BJP at Dharmanagar Vivekananda Sardo Sotobarshiki Bhawan on Sunday morning.
The meeting was held in the presence of booth president, booth level officer, polling agents and people associated with the election machinery. BJP members from six mandals including Dharmanagar, Kadamtala, Kurti, Bagpasa, Panisagar, Juvarajnagar and Kanchanpur were present in the meeting.
When asked why the Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT) was declaring separate candidates for the ensuing Lok Sabha elections when it was very much an alliance partner of the ruling BJP in the state, Deb replied, “I had gone out of station and I also came to know of the entire development from the media. Anyway, every party is free to put up their own candidates and we will also announce the list of candidates very soon.”
