Amit Shah's road show in Tripura, says BJP isn't afraid of violence

"However, it would not be an obstacle for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to come to power in the state after the next week's assembly elections", Mr Shah told the media in Agartala. In his letter, the MGSF president has said government servants in Manipur will launch a "cease work strike" from February 27 unless the government issues relevant orders for the implementation of the seven pay commission scales to government servants.

Shah is on a two-day visit to Tripura and will also hold rallies in Chawmanu and Teliamura.

He also promised to take action against the chit fund scam accused, if the party comes to power.

"25 years [of] continuous rule is a long time, but the Left government has failed to provide drinking water, civic amenities, develop infrastructure and inviting investments". He said state government employees in Tripura were still getting salaries based on the 4th Pay Commission's recommendations.

He also encouraged the North to be more proactive in seeking dialogue with the United States , according to Cheong Wa Dae. Moon is, however, a honest man who has said that he is ready to go the extra mile to make peace with North Korea .

Without naming Rahul Gandhi, he alleged that the Congress chief had put up candidates as "vote-katva" (cutting into others' votes) to help the CPI (M) government headed by Chief Minister Manik Sarkar to come back to power. He asked the people to trust BJP, and if they're given the chance, they'll change everything for the better of the state.

Polling will be held for the 60-seat Tripura assembly on Sunday. It has left nine seats for its electoral ally, the Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT).

In the last polls in 2013, the CPI (M) managed to bag an overwhelming majority with 51 seats, while the rest was shared by the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and the Congress party.

The CPI (M), however, denied the allegation and said that the BJP had carried out the attack instead and one CPI (M) worker was indergoing treatment at a hospital. "Free health scheme will be given to people in Tripura".
