Tripura: BJP-IPFT cabinet to be sworn in on 08th March (Thursday)

The BJP-IPFT combine scripted history yesterday by winning the Tripura Assembly polls with a two-third majority, ending 25 years of uninterrupted rule of the CPI (M)-led Left Front in the north-eastern state. "We won the elections because of our victory in the reserved ST constituencies", Debbarma is quoted as saying by The Indian Express.

BJP has so far won four seats and is leading in 34 of the 60-member Tripura Assembly, while its ally Indigenous People's Front of Tripura has won four seats and is ahead in four others.

Biplab Kumar Deb thanked the people of Tripura for their overwhelming support and credited Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah with the party's showing.

Newly elected MLAs of the BJP and its ally IPFT in Tripura will meet here on March 6 (tomorrow) to elect their leader.

The IPFT has been fighting for a separate state for tribals since its inception in the year 1997.

If that outfit in question was a $4,000 Alexander McQueen dress , you know we'd be wearing it down the shops if we could. It probably helped that Tiffany treated Meryl like the Hollywood royalty she is and ended the visit with a curtsey.

The BJP leadership did not make any comment on the IPFTs demand. "Now if we are not given respectable positions, we would support the government from outside", he said.

BJP, which did not have a single councillor in all of Tripura and lost its deposit in 49 constituencies out of 50 in 2013 assembly elections, had managed this land sliding victory.

Hailing the BJP's performance in recently-held elections in three northeastern states, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Sunday said the party will register victory in poll-bound Karnataka as well.

BJP leader Sunil Deodhar, a key player in the party's victory, was, however, not anxious.

The IPFT came into being in the late 90s and had campaigned for a separate state for tribals by carving out the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) on the plea that the indigenous people had become marginalised due to the huge migration of people to this state after partition of the country in 1947. "We're hopeful the central government will form a high-level monitoring committee to look into our demand".
