Tripura CM held party meeting of three-tier panchayat poll

Tripura CM held party meeting of three-tier panchayat poll

Agartala, Jun 13 (UNI) With the preparation of three-tier panchayat election expected to be the end of next month, ruling BJP has held a review meeting with the leaders of the party under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb last night.

The BJP sources said that there was a threadbare discussion on poll strategies and political activities at the grassroots level. The meeting has resolved to undertake all-out efforts to ensure peace and tranquillity in the electioneering and BJP will counter the oppositions move to terrorise the situation.

A 13 –member committee for three tier panchayat election was constituted with the top leaders of the party under the chairmanship of education minters and veteran politician Ratan Lal Nath. All the elected MLAs in coordination with the local leaders of BJP will involve in the electioneering while Lok Sabha MP from West Tripura Pratima Bhowmik and East Tripura MP Rebati Tripura will supervise the entire activities.

The meeting has also reviewed the activities and performance of the party leaders and legislators in just concluded Parliamentary elections. According to the report, Chief Minister Deb urged the party leaders to stay away from any sort of violence and terror tactics and warned if anybody found indulging any conspiracy would be dealt with seriously.

“The BJP as a party always prefer fair play in elections and to win the heart of the people by good work. The candidates of the panchayats have to be selected on the basis of their dedication, hard work, personal image and educational qualification. I hope the leaders and workers of BJP would follow the principle letter and spirit to help us in making the Tripura model before the country in three years,” Deb reportedly delivered in the meeting.

He further stated that BJP had won both the Lok Sabha seats fighting against inside and outside conspirators with the massive support of the people of the country. The party would now onwards concentrate on strengthening of organisations at various levels and to sway the voters’ mind by all good works beyond political enmity, he added.

“Tripura has a tradition of political violence and bloodshed among the parties that ultimately brought a bad name to all of us. We want to fight others with political ideology and beat the opposition with good work. For this I need the support of each and every individual and political leader,” Deb attributed.

However, the state election commission has said as many as 12,02,989 electorates including 5,86,134 female would cast their votes in three tier-panchayat elections across 3386 constituencies and 6111 seats in 591-gram panchayats. There will be 419 constituencies and as many seats in the thirty-five Panchayat Samitis and 116 constituencies and as many seats in eight Zilla Parishad.

There will be various categories of reservation of seats for men and women belonging to scheduled caste and scheduled tribe communities and the general category of women. Besides, there will be 2180 unreserved seats in the gram panchayats, 143 in the Panchayat Samitis and 40 in the Zilla Parishad
