THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Chief Minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan said on his facebook post today that, the People of Tripura will no doubt reject this anti people anti peace alliance. He was wishing the left front in the upcoming legislative election. The Assembly polls will be held in the state February 18, 2018. The state has 60 Assembly seats and the term of the current Assembly expires on 14 March.
Pinarayi also said that he is confident that the voters of Tripura would once again elect the Left Front with a thumping majority in the forthcoming elections to the Legislative Assembly.
The big change in the 2018 elections is that it is no longer a duel between the Communist Party of India (Marxist) — the (CPI(M)) and the Congress. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is leaving no stone unturned to capture this one of the two remaining Left bastions in India.
One of BJP's strategies in Tripura (and also in many other states going to the polls), where it traditionally didn't have a base, has been to attract members of other political parties into its fold.
“Tripura is witnessing an unholy alliance by the BJP that makes tall talk on nationalism while joining hands with a regional outfit of anti-national divisive forces”, Pinarayi Vijayan says in his Facebook post.
The full text facebook post of Pinarayi Vijayan is as follows.
I am confident that the voters of Tripura would once again elect the Left Front with a thumping majority in the forthcoming elections to the Legislative Assembly. Tripura is a symbol of peace, harmony and unity of people across religions, tribal and non- tribal, in a region beset with ethnic differences. This has been possible because of the policies of the Left Front Government led by Com Manik Sarkar , which enabled progress in all fields.
Tripura is witnessing an unholy alliance by the BJP that makes tall talk on nationalism while joining hands with a regional outfit of anti-national divisive forces. This alliance is resorting to violent attacks on CPI(M) workers. But they will not succeed in their nefarious plans. The BJP in Tripura comprises discredited and corrupt defectors from the Congress party. People of Tripura will no doubt reject this anti people anti peace alliance.
People of Kerala and the country as a whole are looking to the people of Tripura to sound the first bell of the defeat of the BJP in the forthcoming elections which will be repeated all over India.
We wish the Left Front candidates and the people,of Tripura all success in the forthcoming elections. #Left4Tripura
