PM Modi pushes for cooperative federalism at Tripura oath-taking ceremony

Chief ministers of various states streamed in to attend the function, hailing the victory of the party, which decimated 25 yeas of uninterrupted rule of the CPI (M)-led Left Front government in the north eastern state.

In a letter to the Chief Electoral Officer, Tripura, the Tripura Left Front Committee stated that it has chose to withdraw their candidate from the Charilam constituency election as the Election Commission (EC) has "not considered" its appeal for postponement of the election to the constituency due to various incidents of pre-poll violence.

The move comes after the poll authorities "remained silent" over the Left's request for postponement of the Charilam poll "until normalcy returned". It was scheduled to be held on March 12.

Only a few BJP leaders turned up for oath-taking ceremony in Nagaland and Meghalaya. The two parties secured two-thirds majority in the elections to the 60-member state legislature. The 2018 #Tripura elections will be one such example.

The Left Front on Saturday announced it will not contest the election to the Charilam Assembly constituency on Monday alleging post-poll violence. "This is anti-democratic and this election will be a farce", said Yechury.

"I feel the IPFT did the right thing by aligning with the BJP".

In line with its promise, the BJP government in Tripura on Saturday chose to set up a high-level expert body to propose ways and means to raise the salaries and allowances of the state government employees at par with the proposals of the Seventh Pay Commission.

He claimed that 290 shops owned by Left members and supporters were burnt down, 10 rubber gardens destroyed, over 600 Left members and supporters assaulted badly, 10 vehicles damaged.
