AGARTALA, Oct 11 (TIWN): On October 9, 2018 TIWN had published a news categorically mentioning how BJP is promoting controversial issues to divert the attention from Vision Document to "other" things. As announced by MP Subramanian Swamy during his Tripura visit that BJP will raise Hindutva issue before Lok Sabha claiming "Economic issues are not important to win election", BJP is striving hard to divert the attention to that particular direction. TRTC Chairman cum BJP leader Alik Mjaumder has announced that this year "Sanghati Club" (Alik Majumder is the President of the club) is going to make mythological Ram Mandir of Ayodha at Rs. 21 lakhs of budget. "Even though Ayodhya proposed Ram Mandir is not a reality yet, but people will come to know about Ram Mandir and Akala-Bodhon of Ram after visiting our pandal". The BJP leader also said, this year commodity price is high but puja budget is same, has not increased. (Ram Janmabhoomi is the name given to the site that many Hindus believe to be the birthplace of Rama, the 7th avatar of the Hindu deity Vishnu).The Ramayana (Epic) states that the location of Rama's birthplace is on the banks of the Sarayu river in a city called "Ayodhya". On 6 December 1992, a large crowd of Hindu Kar Sevaks demolished the 16th-century Babri Mosque in the city of Ayodhya, in Uttar Pradesh.

The demolition occurred after a political rally at the site turned violent. A particular case is going on in the Supreme Court.  BJP has now backing other issues as NRC, Netaji, Mahatma Gandhi related politics in Tripura and other states.

After failed to fulfill the Vision Document's a single point BJP is now trying to divert the attention whereas recently in the name of 7th Pay Commission increasing 0.32 factor has resulted as the biggest ever JUMLA for the State Employees. 

There are many promises in the Vision Document whereas in the first page 10 points of promises were highlighted as : 1)One employment opportunity in each household, 2)Free Education for Women Till graduation, 3) 7th Pay Commission for all Govt employees & state pensioners, 4) Free smart phones to youths, 5) Minimum allowance will be Rs. 2000 & Minimum wage will be Rs. 340, 6)Investigate Rose Valley Chit fund case & punish all the guilty, 7) Provide Housing to all without brick housing, 8) Free Health insurance to all BPL Households, 9) Provide drinking water to all households, 10) Regularize contractual govt employees. But now after 202 days of the Govt formation, unemployment has increased 9%, recruitment are being stopped including TPSC, MGNREGA works are down and zero progress with Vision Document added by Poll-violence, lawlessness, deteriorating law and order condition.
