Tension between BJP – IPFT intensified


Agartala, May 14, 2018: Tension between Tripura’s ruling coalition partners BJP – IPFT intensified over sharing of posts at block level institutions. Tussle between the two parties over spreading area of influence also added fuel to the crisis.

Intervention of Chief Minister Biplab Deb and constitution of a five member coordination committee under Chairmanship of Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Debbarman seems to have little impact to end the imbroglio. Supporters of both the parties are frequently getting involved in violent clashes over past week.

Several people injured, vehicles damaged and shops shut after BJP and IPFT workers clashed at Mungiakami  in Khowai district. IPFT workers continued protests against denial to their leaders as Chairman of Block Advisory Committee (BAC) in some areas.
