AGARTALA, Oct 4 (TIWN): Even after BJP's open rigging led by Ram Prasad Pal at Dukli block was exposed, attack upon IPFT at Yuvarjanagar block revealed and went viral in social media, along with various more similar incidents, Law Minister Ratan lal Nath has claimed that BJP wanted opposition to fight in the Panchayat by-election.

"As they (opposition parties) didn't get candidates, so didn't file nominations", said Ratan lal Nath adding in the few blocks where oppositions submitted nominations BJP won 86% seats,which is a positive side.

2) Then at Durga Chowmuhani block, in an open attack in CPI-M's vehicle all the nomination papers were snatched.
