Targeting the alliance between BJP and IPFT, Sarkar stated, "a huge and diabolic conspiracy is going on across the State to destabilize the peace and mutual brotherhood of tribals and non-tribals, clearly indicating the pre-poll alliance between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT)".

The Trinamool Congress (TMC), which had faced a jolt past year in the state after six of its MLAs joined the BJP, has formed an alliance with the Indigenous Nationalist Party of Twipra (INPT) and the National Conference of Tripura for the upcoming election.

The Swarnajug or golden age in Tripura, as claimed by the ruling CPI (M), was a "failure", he said, while describing the BJP s promises of acche din as "treachery". "It won't be merely a change of MLAs or government but will usher in its transformation", Amit Shah said at a rally. As a result, the party shifted it's full attention to Tripura for a change.

I've learnt the CM has been alleging that the BJP government at the centre is not providing fund to the state.

He warned the CPM that BJP is not afraid of violence, and that it would be fighting elections against a very powerful party, so they should be able to accept defeat if necessary.

COMMENTSThe BJP poll campaign would end with a rally of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Agartala on February 15, he said.
