Tripura polls: Campaigning ends, voting on Thursday

Agartala, Feb 14 (TIWN): Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing an election rally in Tripura on Saturday said that voting for the Congress and the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) would facilitate the return of violence and corruptions in the state.

In a scathing attack against the CPI-M, Modi without taking names said that one party rule existed in the state earlier and the flag of the same party was the only one seen during elections.

At the rally in Dhalai district headquarters, Ambassa, he said that during the previous regime, Tripura had 'chanda' (donation) raj and people had to give 'chanda' to the CPI-M for every affair.

The Prime Minister added that the BJP government had implemented the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission, benefiting more than one lakh state government employees.

The women were subjected to severe atrocities earlier, but the BJP had been empowering them ever since gaining power in 2018, he said.

The Prime Minister said that the government had taken up a plan to prioritise the development of 110 districts of the country and Tripura's Dhalai was one among the list.

Urging the people to cast their votes in favour of the saffron party to keep their 'double-engine government' running in the state, Modi claimed that BJP leaders had been working tirelessly to achieve optimum results from HIRA (Highway, I-way, Railway and Airway).

All villages of the state would be connected to each other and to the world through optical fibre cable network, the Prime Minister said.

He added that the state would also be connected with Bangladesh through rail, air and waterways.
