Agartala, June 10: BJP president Amit Shah will visit Tripura on June 18 to release the report card of the BJP-led government in the State with the completion of its 100 days in power.

The first BJP-led government in the State, which is in alliance with the Indigenous Peoples’ Front of Twipra, will be completing its first 100 days in office on June 16.

The BJP-IPFT coalition came to power on April 8 after defeating the CPI (M)-led Left Front that ruled the State for 25 years. The party had made many promises during the run-up for the election and the report card will give a clear account to the people of the State regarding the performance of the BJP government during its first 100 days in power, she said.
