Tripura | BJP-IPFT meeting resolves alliance impasse in state
AGARTALA | September 29, 2018 (UNI):
The BJP-IPFT coordination committee meeting at the residence of deputy chief minister Jishnu Dev Varma last night resolved the impasse over the appointment of the chairman of block advisory committees (BAC) under autonomous district council (ADC) but could not finalise the candidates for upcoming Loksabha elections.
According to report, the meeting decided to appoint six BAC chairmen from IPFT and rest of the blocks will be under BJP.
However, the decision of appointment of chairman in Lefunga and Killa blocks for which IPFT has been fighting, was referred to the court of the presidents of both the parties.
The BJP president and Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and IPFT president and Revenue Minister
N C Debbarma would sit soon to finalise the post of chairman in both the trouble torn blocks and some other issues including distribution of top posts of different public sector undertakings.
The party sources said that BJP had turned down the demand of their nominee as alliance candidate in east Tripura reserved seat in Loksabha and indicated that BJP will not have any objection if IPFT gave the separate candidate for the seat but BJP is firm to fight both the Loksabha constituencies.
