AGARTALA, Sep 8 (TIWN): IPFT leadership undergone JUMLA Party’s FAKE promises before election and now witnessing mass-cheating as no funds to develop ADC areas. Being sidelined after BJP’s announcement of battling upcoming Panchayat by-election solo , IPFT organized a meeting at Nazrul Kalakshetra on Saturday led by Minister Mebar Kumar Jamatia. However, IPFT didn’t clarify the purpose of the meeting but all top leaders were seen in that meeting. IPFT will only give candidates in the Panchayat seats, whereas to avoid Panchayat Samiti and Jila Parishad, said sources. These two aligned ruling parties IPFT and BJPs’ ‘no alliance’ has shocked the IPFT, BJP voters but from BJP it has been said that there was no issue among IPFT, BJP rather they are giving chance to each other to fight the election battle alone.

In total 58 blocks, elections are going to be held. Total Gram Panchayats are 592 in Tripura and out of them 425 Gram Panchayats will undergo elections. 3207 seats will undergo by-election due to resigns of candidates, across Gram Panchayats, 161-Panchayat Samitis, 18-Jila Parishads and total 7 lakh 85 thousand 321 voters will cast votes.

BJP, IPFT which are continuously undergoing clashes especially in the interior, rural, ADC areas have decided to fight the By-Election battle all 'alone', was announced in a press conference by BJP Law Minister Ratan Lal Nath.

In clarification Ratan Lal Nath said, "Panchayat Election is not like Lok Sabha or Assembly Election at all. BJP, IPFT had talks in nice way and BJP has welcomed all parties of the State to battle the Election including IPFT".

"BJP talked to IPFT President NC Debbarma and it was a fruitful meeting indeed. In meeting both of the parties decided so", Nath said.

2980 candidates have been finalized by BJP for Gram Panchayat. In Panchayat Samiti out of 161 seats 157 candidates are finalized, in Jila Parishad 18 candidates out of 18 are also done.

Since the post-election era IPFT, BJP came in various clashes with each-other and recently at Udaipur Garji there was an FIR also lodged by BJP leaders against IPFT in murder attempt and violence allegations. 

On the other side, CPI-M, Congress candidates are unable to collect nomination papers and it was reported in various media that by entering opposition leaders homes threats, snatching of nominations are going on and BJP is creating terror across state aimed to win election without any battle.
