BJP will form next government in Tripura: Amit Shah


BJP president Amit Shah on Sunday asked the people of Tripura to oust the Lal bhai government, as he accused the Left cadres of pocketing public funds meant for development.

Bharatiya Janata Party National President Amit Shah on Sunday said his party would make Tripura a "model state" within five years if it is voted to power.

Tripura's leftist government had recently alleged that the Modi government was "lackadaisical" when it came to the matter of allotting funds to Tripura.

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.

"In the 25 years of CPIM, more than 7 lakh people are unemployed".

Shah during this also promised to bring development in the state and will generate the employment opportunities for the people of Tripura.

Starting his interaction with the media of the state, Amit Shah showed confidence in forming BJP government in the state after the elections in Tripura.
