Opposition Communist Party of India-Marxist legislators were expected to raise the issue of “political violence, government jobs and crisis of school teachers”.

“A severe crisis of food and rural jobs is putting the people in the rural, interior and tribal areas in a harsh distress condition while the state government remains inactive and busy with other non-serious issues,” Deputy Opposition Leader Badal Choudhury said.

This is the third session of the Tripura Assembly after the Bharatiya Janata Party-Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (BJP-IPFT) alliance came to power on March 9. The alliance trounced the CPI-M-led Left Front government in the February 2018 polls after two decades of rule.
