Present political scenario in Tripura
Growing signs of isolation in Tripura, the ruling BJP could be staring at the parting of ways by one of its key allies in the poll-bound state, the Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT).In a closed-door meeting between IPFT chief Prem Kumar Reang and another influential tribal faction chief Pradyot Manikya Debbarma of the TIPRA Motha in Guwahati recently, the two sides decided to fight the February 16 Assembly polls together. In the 60-member Assembly, one-third of seats fall in tribal areas. In 2018, the IPFT allied with BJP even as the opposition – the Congress and the Left – stood divided. This time, not only the tribal parties demanding ‘Greater Tipraland’ have come closer but also Congress and CPM have allied, severely obstructing the BJP’s attempt to return to power. BJP will try its best but Tripurs Motha will be the deciding factor. BJP will be around 25 to 26. Motha 14 to 16. CPM 22 to 25 and Congress 5 to 6. The new CM is better than previous so he has gained a bit. If Manik Sarkar retires and Jitendra Chaudhury a Tribal is declared as face, Motha will support CPM.
