A High-stakes poll for 'Red Fort' Tripura
A High-stakes poll for 'Red Fort' Tripura
Tripura, in the north-eastern corner of India, appears set to witness an electoral battle between the Communist Party of India (Marxist) [CPI (M)], which has been re-elected for 25 years to head the State government, and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which holds power in New Delhi and sees itself in an expansionist mode in the States. Subir Bhaumik, Senior Fellow, with Centre for Study in International Relations and Development (CSIRD), Kolkata, analysing Tripura’s political configurations, points out that not much of the BJP's saffron wave has washed into the State where ethnicity and ideology, not religion, have been the political driving forces.
