Tripura BJP launches weeklong ‘house-to-house’ campaign

Tripura BJP launches weeklong ‘house-to-house’ campaign

Agartala, Nov 27 (UNI) Tripura's ruling BJP on Sunday launched a week-long house-to-house campaign across the state's 60 assembly constituencies highlighting the "good work" done by the coalition (BJP-IPFT) government over the past five years.
Besides Chief Minister Manik Saha, Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Varma, Union Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Pratima Bhowmik and BJP State in-charge Mahesh Sharma led the campaign in various constituencies.
The state party president Rajib Bhattacharjee said the campaign would continue till Dec 3 and the leaders would try to visit at least each locality in the constituency if not all houses with the success stories of the BJP-led government.
“Our government has done several good things including providing sustainable livelihood support, development of rural infrastructure, implementing social welfare schemes and numerous development projects for furthering connectivity within the rest of the state and also with the neighbouring country, for which the people of Tripura aspired for the last 50 years. So, we shall seek votes based on the performance of our government,” Bhattacharjee said.
Chief Minister Saha told the media that opposition parties were suffering from a chronic problem of lack of leadership and continued to indulge in negative politics. People have not been accepting them, as BJP’s successful tenure is now being compared with the 25 years of communist rule and the Congress government in 1988-1993.
“Tripura has been re-introduced at the national level by Prime Minister Narendra Modi by recognizing the talents of the state, facilitating the global marketing of the best quality pineapple, jackfruit, and scented lemon,” Saha said.
Tripura’s bamboo and Agar (the natural ingredient of perfume) are now known to the world because of the PM and the first logistic hub in the Special Economic Zone of the northeast would soon come up in the state.
Tripura is now connected to the rest of India through superfast and express trains and the Agartala airport has been elevated to international standard facilities and has connectivity with all major Indian cities. While earlier, there was only one highway, the state now hasat least eight national highways. Roadways.
The Chief Minister, however, lambasted the opposition over their allegation of poor law and order situation and said, “Communists should revisit the crime records during their 25-year rule. The CPM and Congress are terrorising the commoners and BJP supporters. But I made it clear to the police that no troublemaker should b spares, whatever their political affiliation.”
He claimed BJP has been able to provide transparent and pro-people government in Tripura since 2018. There is no charge of corruption against the Tripura government and the scale of development is as tall as any of the developed states of the country under BJP’s rule, Saha added. UNI BB SSP
