IPFT Cadres Attack CPI(M) Candidate and Activists in Tripura, 5 Hurt

Releasing its election manifesto here for the Tripura Assembly elections, AICC general secretary and Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanswamy brushed aside poll promises and claims made by the BJP and the Left.

"The manifesto reflects Prime Minister Narendra Modi's development agenda", Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said, releasing BJP's "Vision Document".

Along with this, the party will also focus on the development of the education in Tripura and for this, the party will form an educational institute in each and every constituency. He also said that Tripura has risen in revolt against the traditional parties like CPI (M) and Congress. The team further shifted camps to BJP in June previous year.

Jaitley said the ruling CPM has "controlled" the politics of the state with "fear psychosis" for the past 25 years and claimed that the fear has now turned into "hatred", which would be reflected in the poll results. "Yeh poora jhootha hain (These are all lies)", he said.

He said, if voted to power, his party would introduce special economic zones (SEZs) in key sectors like food processing, bamboo, IT and consumer durables. "BJP governments at Assam, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Haryana didn't implement 7 PC awards".

He said Congress party alone offered true development to the country and said BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government at the centre was content with renaming projects and schemes from UPA regime. Jaitley said the communists have kept investments away from Tripura and said only investment could create more jobs in the state. The people are fed up with the communist rule here and looking for a viable alternative, which BJP is given and left front will lose the election because of anti-incumbency. It promises better education by increasing English medium schools, Women's colleges in all 8 districts, computer training and Internet connectivity, online classes, adequate healthcare personnel in all eight districts, mental health services and a Universal Health Insurance Scheme like Mega Health Insurance Scheme (MHIS).

The Prime Minister is also scheduled to address a public meeting at Shantirbazaar in South Tripura district ahead of the rally at Agartala.
