Presently, most states of the country are under the BJP government and the party seemingly left no stone unturned even in the northeastern part of the country. The BJP national president, Amit Shah and other party dignitaries have held a number of rallies and conducted meetings. The saffron party has also seen some members defecting to it in last few months from Congress and other parties, which is one indication of the party's strengthening grip over the state. The party also held a 'Parivartan rally' in the state with an aim to expose the ruling party for its misrule and use of terror to suppress any political opposition. BJP state president Biplab Deb also expressed assurance that people were not going to vote for the CPI(M) in the coming Vidhan Sabha elections in Tripura.
CPI(M) is also Preparing Hard
OOn the other hand, the Left Front too made a number of attempts to retain its power in the state. The party also launched a huge election campaigning in the state. Many chief party officials also called the saffron party's moves a conspiracy against them. Currently, the ruling party CPI(M) holds a majority in the Tripura Assembly House with 49 seats and is ruling the constituencies for over 2 decades without facing many challenges from the opposition parties.
