AGARTALA, Aug 25 (TIWN): In the upcoming ADC Election, Tipraland demanding party IPFT’s results may not be supportive to the image of the party, survey says. Also in the last Panchayat Election held in June month, IPFT downed at 4th position after Congress and CPI-M. Also in last Lok Sabha election, BJP won without any alliance with IPFT. IPFT is now in alliance with BJP in power and its two MLAs holding positions in the cabinets but till now, IPFT could not raise its main issue “Tipraland” in the State Assembly. At the same time, BJP has set a milestone of “Ek Tripura Shrestha Tripura”, whereas BJP’s political ally IPFT continues its demand of Tipraland which may take a serious turn as IPFT’s is now put on question mark for not raising the Tipraland issue in the Assembly.In sixty member Tripura assembly, IPFT has eight MLAs and BJP has 36 MLA.

 BJP has decided to make its own ground to increase ADC area’s vote banks and to assist BJP for that the faction IPFT members from IPFT-Tipraha along with top leaders have joined BJP recently. This joining has been termed by BJP a remarkable achievement at the beginning of BJP’s aim to occupy whole ADC vote banks via strengthening organization and reaching out the common men with PM Modi’s vision of ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Bikas, Sabka Biswas’.

BJP has set vision to strengthen vote banks of indigenous people under PM Modi’s Sab Ka Sath, Sab Ka Bikas agenda and such joining programmes are parts of it.

Noteworthy, on August 11, referring news reports, MP Rebati Tripura said time to time newspaper reports show what’s going due to such distasteful activities of them (IPFT) and we also have taken actions time to time  accordingly, but BJP believes in “Sab Ka Satha, Sab Ka Bikas and Sab Ka Biswas”. There is no other agenda of BJP except to form “Ek Tripura, Srestha Tripura”, said the MP..

Moreover, recently on being asked by media, whether BJP IPFT alliance will exist in future, Rebati Tripura said that it can not be said now whether the alliance will stay or not  but BJP will never compromise with its ‘Ek Tripura, Shrestha Tripura’ formula.

BJP-IPFT has formed Govt in Tripura in alliance on March 9, 2018 but in last 16 months there were uncountable clashes between BJP and IPFT. IPFT is considered as BJP’s vote bank base among ADC areas people, athough in MP election IPFT miserably failed but BJP won without support from IPFT.
