New Delhi, August 13: The Bharatiya Jata Party (BJP) is expecting for a good show in the coming Assembly election in Tripura.
“Like in any other States, in northeast too the fight takes place between two parties. People are looking for a third party... For last several years communists run the government in Tripura and before that Congress ruled the government. So, people are looking for a change,” said Viy Sahasrabuddhe, BJP tiol vice president and Rajya Sabha MP to The Sentinel.
Assembly elections in Tripura will take place in the first part of next year. Observers believe that the contests will take place between CPM and BJP.
“There is a Modi wave across India. And in Tripura anti-incumbency will definitely play a key role this time. BJP is mainly an organisatiol party and it has already chalked out its plan how to intrude in the region,” said a senior political observer Subrata Mukherjee.
NEDA convenor and Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sharma will play a key role in the Tripura election, said Mukherjee. “In fact, Himanta also played a big role in the last Assam Assembly election,” the observer said. Interestingly, several Trimul Congress leaders have recently joined BJP.
After they were expelled by the TMC, all its leaders including Sudip Roy Barman, Ashish Saha, Pranjit Singha Roy, Biswa Bandhu Roy, DC Rangkhawl and Sushanta Choudhury have joined the saffron brigade.
It is believed that many more leaders from other parties including Congress and TMC have sent fillers to the BJP central leadership showing their interest to join the party.
BJP’s Tripura observer, Sunil Deodhar has said that the saffron brigade is going to form the government in Tripura.“People have rejected the ruling government following large scale corruption and anti people activities,” said Deodhar.
