Addressing an election rally at Radhakishorepur in Gomati district of Tripura on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the two old players of misgovernance (CPIM and Congress) wrestling in Kerala have done friendship in Tripura.
Referring to Tipra Motha, PM Modi claimed that some small parties are helping the opposition alliance from behind while any vote for these parties will take Tripura several years backward.
While addressing another election rally in Ambassa in Dhalai district earlier in the day, Modi alleged that the Congress and Left governments created division among tribals, while the BJP worked to resolve their issues.
He said, “The BJP has rehabilitated in Tripura over 37,000 Brus displaced from Mizoram.
Our government has introduced the tribal language Kokborok in higher education”.
He said that the BJP government at the Centre has allocated Rs 1 lakh crore for the development of tribal areas in the Union budget.
Modi told people to beware of the double-edged sword of Congress and Left, as they want to stop all schemes that benefit the people.
PM alleged that people have suffered during misgovernance of these two parties and added that they want the poor to remain poor.
He highlighted various achievements of the BJP government in Tripura in terms of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, Ayushman Bharat Yojana, etc.
Modi asserted that the BJP has freed Tripura from the atmosphere of fear and a culture of ‘chanda’ (donations).
Modi claimed that earlier, CPI(M) cadres used to control police stations, while the BJP established rule of law in Tripura.
He added that employment opportunities are also increasing under ‘double-engine’ government in Tripura.
Modi highlighted various development initiatives taken by the BJP government and claimed that the economy of Tripura will significantly benefit from the Centre’s Act East policy and the north-eastern state will soon become the gateway to Southeast Asia.
