AGARTALA: The Tripura unit of CPI-M has slammed the BJP saying that the saffron party is using the office of the President of India for alleged political mileage.

Tripura CPI-M has stated that the BJP is misusing the office of the President of India for political gains by making President Murmu inaugurate a “half-completed” hostel and lay foundation of “old roads”.

Tripura CPI-M secretary Jitendra Chaudhury said, “BJP failed to bring development in the state during its tenure. They fooled people through their schemes.”

“The BJP is now using the office of the President of India for political mileage. They made her launch an incomplete MLA hostel, flag off trains that are operational and lay also foundation stones for old roads,” he alleged.
