Elections to the Tripura West Lok Sabha seat and by-poll to the Ramnagar assembly constituency will be held on April 19.

“It is a historic day for Tripura as three parties- BJP, Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT) and Tipra Motha came together. They joined a rally organised to mark the submission of nomination papers for the ensuing elections. I know many people will be scared of taking on the BJP-led alliance after witnessing the mega rally,” Saha said.

While addressing the rally, the Tripura chief minister also said the party is “100 per cent sure of winning two Lok Sabha seats in Tripura and one assembly constituency with a huge margin”.

“Under the leadership of Manik Saha, the BJP will win both Lok Sabha constituencies and gift two seats to Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” Saini said.

He urged people to make sure that the BJP can cross the 400-seat mark in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Debbarma, who joined the rally along with his leaders and supporters, asserted that the Prime Minister’s victory in the parliamentary elections is “inevitable”.

“I am not a BJP leader, but I am sure Modi ji is returning (to power). Besides, Biplab Kumar Deb and Kriti Singh Debbarma, who is contesting from Tripura East Lok Sabha seat on a BJP ticket will also emerge victorious in the elections. I appeal to the people to take the right path for the development of the state,” he added. (PTI)
