New Equations In Tripura Politics As Congress Gets A Shot In The Arm From BJP's Dissidents
The old party seems to be trying to return to the state it once ruled, which not only the BJP wants but a 'Congress-free' India, but the Trinamool Congress has promised. To come to power in Tripura in the 2023 Assembly elections. Abhishek Banerjee of the TMC had last year claimed that his party would form a government in Tripura after the 2023 Assembly elections.
In Meghalaya, Tripura and even Goa, the TMC's claim to be the BJP's only true opponent by attracting dissidents from the party seems to be waning, at least in Tripura, as the Congress moves towards revival. It was speculated that rebel BJP MLA Sudip Roy Burman and his close associate Ashish Saha would join the TMC after leaving the saffron camp. But, after his resignation, he went to Delhi to meet Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi and rejoined the opposition Congress party.
 
Burman and Saha were former Congress leaders who once joined the BJP in a big way. So the 'return home' was a surprise to many. Sources said that two other BJP MLAs also met Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi and expressed their desire to join the Congress in a few months due to some technical reasons. The BJP-IPFT alliance, which came to power in 2018, ended the CPI (M) 's 25-year rule with 44 seats (BJP, 36 and IPFT eight).
 
  • The BJP now has a shortage of three MLAs, which began in 2018 with the resignation of two MLAs and the resignation of another saffron MLA, Ashish Das. He was disqualified after joining the Trinomial Congress. The BJP got 43 per cent votes. In the last assembly elections, the increase was 1.87 per cent higher than in 2013. In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the majority went to 49 percent. The Congress, which polled 45.75 per cent in 2013, lost 1.86 per cent in 2018 to anti-CPI (M) BJP. Many Congress leaders from the state, such as Roy Burman, have joined the BJP, which has helped to increase support for the saffron party, which did not exist much in the previous decade.
 
  • The CPIM, but, dropped from 53.80 per cent in 2013 to 45.46 per cent in 2018 and came third in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Relations between Chief Minister Deb and Roy Burman camp have soured since the formation of the BJP-IPFT government, and Roy Burman, the state's health minister, was removed from the ministry after the 2019 general election. Charge anti-party action. Dozens of BJP rebel MLAs met party president JP Nada in Delhi and demanded the removal of Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb. But, the group split into two key rebels in the Deb cabinet and split.
 
  • The main opposition CPI (M) has adopted a "wait and see" policy, as its old rival Congress and potential future allies are shaking off its sluggishness and taking small steps for revival. The BJP says that it is not wasted on the departure of these two leaders. "It was a drama and our party does not care about development. There is no threat to the government. Now we are busy giving good governance to the people. Raising their living standards," BJP state president Manik Saha told reporters. Roy Berman, but, predicted the fall of the BJP in the state, accusing his former party of corruption, failure to provide governance and stifling democracy.
 
  • We will spare no effort to defeat the BJP in the next Assembly elections. Before the 2018 elections, the BJP had a 1.87 per cent majority and when we joined the Saffron Party, the Congress majority was diverted to the BJP," he said. Jitendra Chaudhary, CPIM's Tripura unit, said Roy Burman's exit from the BJP was not unexpected and claimed that people were feeling political change in the state.
 
  • But, the CPI (M) leader has not reached any agreement with the Congress soon. Kishor Manikya Debabarma, the head of TIPRA Motha, has become a major factor in Tripura politics after winning the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous Zilla Parishad (TTAADC). Roy Berman said he was angry with the BJP. "In fact, I'm surprised it took so long to get this stay," said Debbarma.
