“Tripura Fort To Crumble In Next Hour”, Tweeted Leader As BJP Took Lead

3rd March 2018   ·   0 Comments

AGARTALA: As the BJP surged ahead in Left-ruled Tripura, a leader of the party in Bihar, Sushil Kumar Modi, posted this update on social media: “CPM Tripura fort to crumble in next 1 hour.”

The biggest story in the northeast election – the first of a series of elections this year – is the end of Left’s two-decade rule and four-time Chief Minister Manik Sarkar’s almost impenetrable fortress in Tripura.

Putting up a remarkable show, the BJP and its alliance partner, Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura, surged ahead of the CPM-led Left Front as votes were counted for the state’s 59 assembly constituencies on Saturday. Polling was cancelled in one constituency in the 60-member assembly after the death of a CPI-M candidate a week before the February 18 election.

The Left has ruled Tripura for the past 25 years.
