Tripura CM Alleges West Bengal Govt Of Blocking His Election Campaigns

Agartala, April 28, 2019

Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb who was in West Bengal for a 5-day election tour has made serious allegations against the Trinamool Congress government of violating Election Commission (EC) guidelines by creating troubles during the election campaign in the state.

The Chief Minister, who is also the Tripura Pradesh President of the BJP, alleged that they were about to hold a roadshow in Bishnupur town of West Bengal but were denied. The Minister also claimed that the West Bengal administration had also troubled them while campaigning.

Deb addressed several election rallies in West Bengal during his visit. He also exuded the confidence of BJP’s victory in the Lok Sabha elections. “The people of West Bengal are fed-up with the ‘syndicate-raj’, ‘cadre-raj’ and the dynastic politics of the Trinamool Congress, he told the media after returning here from Kolkata.

BJP National President Amit Shah also announced that in West Bengal alone, the party will win 23 of the state’s 42 seats. It may be mentioned that the BJP had won only two seats from West Bengal in 2014.

Meanwhile, the political parties are keeping no stone unturned to woo voters as the fourth phase of the elections will take place in the eight West Bengal Lok Sabha constituencies on April 29th, 2019. It may be mentioned that 68 candidates are in the fray for the fourth phase.

On the other hand, Niti Deb, the Chief Minister’s wife who accompanied him, told the media that she was shocked and stunned at some “baseless and false” social media posts about their marital life.

Tripura Police on April 26th, 2019 booked one Facebook user, for allegedly spreading rumours of divorce suit filed against Tripura Chief Minister by his wife on social media platforms.
