BJP’s national General Secretary and Tripura in-charge Vinod Sonkar has said that the party will fight Tripura Assembly polls under chief minister Biplab Kr Deb’s leadership.
“There is going to be no change of power in Tripura. The BJP government under the leadership of Chief Minister Biplab Deb is doing a commendable job in the state and in the future, it will continue to run under his able leadership. The BJP will contest the upcoming Assembly elections under Deb’s leadership,” Sonkar told a new agency.
The BJP national General Secretary’s remarks come at a time when a section of party MLAs in Tripura have been demanding the removal of Deb as chief minister of the state.
Regarding TMC’s effort to make inroads in Tripura, Sonkar said, “The Trinamool had previously fought elections in Tripura with full preparation but its party candidates lost their deposit on all seats they had contested.”
“In Tripura, a corruption-free, crime-free and development-driven BJP government is functioning under the leadership of Chief Minister Biplab Deb. The Trinamool stands no chance of winning the upcoming polls in Tripura,” he said.
