"In Tripura, during the last Assembly elections, we had limited support in the north-east states". The BJP's promises in the Vision Document include free education to women till graduation, 7th Pay Commission awards to government employees, free smartphones to youth, investigation into the multi-crore rupees Rose Valley chit fund scam, housing to all without brick housing, drinking water to every household, regularisation of services of contractual government employees etc.

Shah said Communists have been wiped out of the entire world and Congress is wiped out from India.

Criticizing congress for under development of Tripura, Jaitely said the main opposition of the region had betrayed the people of the state, which helps BJP to grow in Northeast as a whole.

Top BJP leaders, including President Amit Shah, Union Ministers Jaitley and Nitin Gadkari, General Secretary Ram Madhav, Shahnawaz Hussain, West Bengal's Mukul Roy and Locket Chatterjee besides Sarma are in the state to campaign. He also said that Tripura has risen in revolt against the traditional parties like CPI (M) and Congress.

The Left Front has been ruling the state for almost 25 years continuously but Tripura lags behind in distribution of drinking water to households, healthcare services, power supply, infrastructure and attracting investments, he said. The Bharatiya Janata Party is contesting 51 out of the 60 Assembly seats, and its ally Indigenous Peoples Front of Tripura will fight the remaining nine seats. The document was released by Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley in Agartala. Amit Shah also accused the ruling government to spread rumours that the state would be divided if BJP comes to power.


Tripura's leftist government had recently alleged that the Modi government was "lackadaisical" when it came to the matter of allotting funds to Tripura.

He also said apart from this, Rs 18,000 crore was sent as grant while Rs 950 crore under various central government schemes.

On Sunday, the National President of the BJP held two road shows in the state followed by three election rallies.

The results will be out on 3 March, along with the poll outcomes in Meghalaya and Nagaland.
