Tripura: Law & order has collapsed in Tripura under Left Front says Himanta
AGARTALA, November 3: Assam Finance Minister and Chairman of BJP-led North-East Democratic Alliance, Himanta Biswa Sarma said law and order has collapsed in Tripura under the CPI(M) and a BJP parliamentary team would be visiting the state next week to take stock of the situation.
Sarma, who was here to attend a booth-level training programme of BJP activists, claimed that his party would win two-thirds majority in the upcoming Assembly elections in Tripura.
"The CPI(M) would be washed away in the state elections in February. The party is a guest here for the next few months. The BJP would secure two-thirds majority in the 60-member Assembly," Sarma said.
Asked about an alliance with non-Left tribal party Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT), which has been demanding a separate state for tribals, he said, "We want to bring all non-Left political forces under one umbrella to give a befitting reply to the CPI(M).
"But an electoral alliance with any party that demands a separate state is not possible."
A parliamentary team of the BJP would visit different parts of the state on November 10 to take stock of the deteriorating law and order condition, he said, adding that the panel would raise in Parliament issues of human rights violation there.
