BJP is instigating Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT) to hold a rail and road blockade in order to seek a separate state from Tripura, this was alleged ruling CPI(M).

“The Bharatiya Janata Party is instigating the IPFT for rail and road blockade to create havoc to gain political mileage before the Tripura assembly elections,” said state secretary Bijan Dhar, adding, “Before, March 2017 Manipur assembly elections, BJP has egged on the United Naga Council to block a vital National Highway in order to dislodge the then Congress government from that state.”

He further reminded within 48 hours of assumption of office by a BJP government in Manipur, the road blockade that stretched for several months was called off.

Meanwhile, countering CPI (M)’s allegation, Tripura BJP chief Biplab Deb said, “The CPI-M’s allegation is totally false and concocted. The BJP never supports the division of Tripura. The Left Front can take legal and administrative action against anyone trying to create trouble and disturb the peace.”

Deb further stated that BJP wanted the Left Front government to call an all-party meeting to discuss the issue.

It is to be mentioned here, opposition TPCC and TMC has also opposed the IPFT’s demand.
