AGARTALA, March 10 (TIWN): Replying media quarries on Saturday at Agartala Press Club, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb while addressing media on one year completion of the BJP Govt said that IPFT doesn’t talk about Tipraland in the Govt as they also have understood that Modi Govt is the trying its best to develop ADC areas. “Under the previous Govt, due to long deprivation such thinkings came. Moreover, when you are in alliance, then many things have to be compromised. For example, BJP’s motto is always Ram Mandir, but due to NDA Govt where many parties are in alliance it could not happen”, said Biplab Deb. Being asked by media, that IPFT Vice President Mangal Debbarma said that IPFT need Tipraland, Biplab Deb said, “You said Mangal Debbarma is Vice President, but NC Debbarma is President. So what President says is more important”.

The Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT), an ally of the ruling BJP in Tripura, on Tuesday said it would go it alone in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.Party spokesperson Mangal Debbarma said the decision to field candidates in the two Lok Sabha seats in the state was taken on March 3, following a central committee meeting of the IPFT here.

"When BJP national president Amit Shah visited Agartala on January 5, we submitted a memorandum to him, demanding that the IPFT be allowed to field a candidate in East Tripura constituency, reserved for Scheduled Tribe. He told us that he would get back to us on the matter, but never did," Debbarma, who is also the assistant general secretary of the party, told reporters.
As Shah did not respond to the IPFT request, the party was compelled to take this decision, he said.
A five-member committee has been formed with IPFT president NC Debbarma as the chairman to select candidates for the two seats and discuss the modalities of election campaign, he added.

BJP spokesperson Ashok Sinha, when asked about his reaction to the IPFT move, said every political party has the freedom to make a choice.

"It is up to the IPFT to decide what it wants to do for the Lok Sabha polls. Every political party is free to take its own decision. However, when it comes to the BJP, such decisions are taken by the senior leaders in Delhi," Sinha added/
