AGARTALA, Jan 19 (TIWN): The BJP and IPFT will align in total 20 seats, will likely to woo BJP with tribal vote banks and IPFT with some MLAs. BJP will fight in 11 seats and IPFT will be in 9 seats. However, officially BJP has not announced anything yet, neither any joint statement has come out. At evening, Ram Madhav from Delhi will address the press. The seats of alliance are : 1) Kanchanpur, 2) Raimavalley, 3) Ompinagar, 4) Korbook, 5) Takarjala, 6) Manu, 7) Simna, 8) Asharam Bari, 9) Ramchandragha. The Tipraland issue which was suffering from double standards, were many times denied by BJP, whereas IPFT leader N C Debbarma kept on saying that Rajnath Singh agreed with Tipraland and surely that why high powered committee was formed. But today, without Tipraland, only on the basis of Socio-Economic-Linguistic development issue, the alliance was done. A joint statement has also come out, which will be published soon. Earlier, reacting over media's interaction Himanta Biswa Sarma said that a joint statement will come soon clarifying all questions, where NC Debbarma will have to sign.

"Seat allotments are minor issues, rather we have to diminish the ideological crisis among the parties", said Sarma to media before the alliance. 

From BJP State President Biplab Deb, Assam Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, State Observer Sunil Deodhar, Jishnu Dev Barman were present in the last meeting.

Even though NC Debbarma clearly said that Central BJP has given green signal to the Tipraland and that's why the High-Powered-Committee was formed, but now he has to clear that BJP didn’t mention about Tipraland.

Amidst all these allegations, BJP is all set to align with IPFT, the party which is targeted for a separate state in Tripura.

The Assam Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that N C Debbarma has to sign socio-economic development agenda of BJP in joint statement and the ideological crisis has to be diminished. Till the joint Statement comes out, the BJP has asked media to wait. 

Now CPI-M likely to derive political mileage for BJP’s hobnobbing with separatist elements.
