|LF confident of retaining power in Tripura|
AGARTALA, Dec 23 - CPI(M)-led Left Front Government in Tripura will retain power with more votes and seats in the upcoming Assembly elections, claimed party’s senior leader Gautam Das.
BJP and its allies have been trying hard to create trouble to capture power but the people are determined to vote for the ruling Left Front on the basis of their experience, he said while speaking to the media at press conference here today.
In a State Committee meeting, the leaders reviewed the prevailing political situation in the State and also took a note of the party’s preparedness for the 2018 Assembly elections, he said on Saturday.
“People’s participation in party’s programmes show their faith on the Left’s rule in the State”, he said. “We hope elections will take place on time, i.e., by February- end although there have been ploys to postpone the elections”, he also said.
The CPI(M) Central Committee member said the Left Front will kickstart its election campaign on December 31 with an appeal for peace and progress. CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury, CPI leader D Raja and Chief Minister Manik Sarkar will address the rally scheduled for December 31, he informed.
Lambasting the BJP-led Government for befooling the people, Das alleged the Narendra Modi-led Government has failed to deliver what he had promised during the campaign prior to the last Lok Sabha elections.
The Goods and Service Tax and demonetisation has hurt lakhs of people in the country and the BJP-led Government has been on the move to destroy country’s rural economy, he added.
