Unity, development of northeast is highest priority, says PM Modi in Tripura


Long-time RSS volunteer Biplab Deb took the reins of Tripura's chief minister at the grand ceremony along with his council of ministers.

"We urged the administration and the BJP leadership to take adequate measures to stop these post-poll violence immediately in the entire state", Dhar added.

On the day, the ace leaders of the party mark their presence including the Prime Minister of the country.

Deodhar warned Biplab to get all "septic tanks of minister quarters cleaned", claiming that a woman's skeleton was found in the septic tank of ex-CM Manik Sarkar in 2005.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP National General Secretary Ram Madhav and other leaders of the BJP-ruled states attended the swearing-in ceremony. Elections are over and we have to look ahead.

"Situation in Tripura is such that no free and fair election is possible".

Dhar also alleged, "We also mentioned about forcible occupation of two TMSU (Tripura Motor Shramik Union) offices in that constituency". Addressing himself as people's person, the new chief minister spoke to 3.7 million people of Tripura, calling them his "dal, roti" (staple). While the toppling of Lenin's statue had been widely criticised, relationships between the two parties appeared to be on the mend when the BJP invited former CM Manik Sarkar to attend Biplab Deb's oath-taking ceremony.

Alleging that several offices of the Left Front were ransacked in the constituency prior to the election, Dhar said, "In our earlier memorandum submitted to you on March 8 last, we had categorically mentioned the names of 11 party offices of CPI (M) and RSP which were either ransacked, looted, occupied or set on fire". "People of Tripura will give an answer to them", he said.

CPM politburo member Prakash Karat has said that the defeat of the party in Tripura after ruling the state for 25 years is an indication that the party needs a new sense of direction.

But the start of the government appears to have had a rocky beginning as the BJP has refused IPFT's first request and now there is a doubt that the ally party will have to struggle for taking a nod of BJP on their demands.

The BJP had bagged 35 seats and the IPFT eight in the 60-member House. Most other tribal MLAs of the BJP-IPFT alliance belong to IPFT.
