BJP will win in Karnataka too: CM Devendra Fadnavis

Mumbai: The Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP's) exemplary performance in Tripura reflects the mood of the people for the 2019 general elections, Ashish Shelar, the party's city unit chief, said on Saturday.

The BJP-IPFT combine scripted history yesterday by winning the Tripura Assembly polls with a two-third majority, ending 25 years of uninterrupted rule of the CPI (M)-led Left Front in the north-eastern state.

Ram Pada Jamatia, another candidate of BJP from 30-Bagma (ST) constituency said, " The people of Tripura got independence after long time from CPI-M regime, which is victory of people."Mr. Jamatia won as BJP candidate from Gomati District under Udaipur subdivision with good margin that counted 24074 votes and nearest candidate Naresh Ch. Jamatia from CPIM party had secured 21241 votes.

Indigenous Peoples Front of Tripura (IPFT) is a tribal-based political party, prevalent in Tripura.

According to party sources, BJP legislators would sit tonight to select their leader and tomorrow the formal claim for formation of the government would be placed to Governor.

The IPFT has been fighting for a separate state for tribals since its inception in the year 1997.


Clarifying the meaning of "respectable" positions, IPFT president N.C. Debbarma said it meant proportionate representation of IPFT MLAs in the Cabinet and allocation of major departments to them.

It is likely to be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, many Union ministers and chief ministers of BJP-ruled states, Biplab Deb said.

He also said that the BJP and IPFT had fought the elections in alliance with the sole target of defeating the CPI-M and it was achieved. "However, with the support of people and the employees, I am sure everybody will learn on the job and do a great job in due course", he said.

The BJP leadership did not make any comment on the IPFT's demand. "We're hopeful the central government will form a high-level monitoring committee to look into our demand".
