IPFT leaders to meet Amit Shah on May 20

Our correspondent
Agartala, May 15: The IPFT, a constituent of the BJP-led ruling alliance in Tripura, will be meeting BJP national president Amit Shah, during his visit to Assam, in Guwahati on May 20.
Sorting out the differences between the two parties on various issues and determining the priorities of the government are likely to be discussed during the meeting.

Vice president of the IPFT Ananta Debbarma said Revenue minister Narendra Chandra Debbarma, Forest Minister Maber Kumar Jamatia, six MLAs and party leaders of various rank and wings will visit Guwahati to meet Shah.

The meeting assumed special significance as both the alliance partners are taking a belligerent attitude towards each other on various issues.
Recently, a series of violent incidents have taken place between the supporters of the two parties over the nomination of the BAC chairman. The BJP leaders are also giving a serious thought over the stand taken by the IPFT regarding formation of a modality committee by the Union Home Ministry.

Debbarma said some differences are going on between the supporters of both the political parties and expressed confidence that everything would be sorted out soon. On the recent violent incidents, he said a large number of CPI (M) workers have joined both the IPFT and the BJP and a section of them with ulterior motive are trying to create an atmosphere of mistrust among the alliance partners.

“These things will not be tolerated,” he added.
The two parties recently in a meeting headed by Chief Minister Biplab Deb formed a co-ordination committee to sort out local disputes.
