Tripura BJP corners rebel MLAs from Covid-19 relief distribution


The Tripura BJP has launched Covid-19 welfare activities in Assembly segments held by party’s rebel legislators. A serious tussle between the Tripura leaders have been doing the rounds in Tripura, which is a BJP-dominated state since 2018.

They have apparently targeted MLAs Sudip Roy Barman , Asish Kumar Saha and Sushanta Chowdhury to corner them in their own turf.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the party is avoiding organisation programmes . But the party cadres  are seen distributing masks, sanitizers and food packets to destitute people in constituencies like 6-Agartala, Bardowali and Majlishpur without inviting the local MLAs.

Tripura BJP president Manik Saha has been regularly visiting  Bardowali to hand out relief to the people amidst the pandemic.

Asish Kumar Saha won from the constituency five times in a row, but Dr. Saha is reportedly expecting the party’s nomination in the next Assembly elections.

The rebel leaders have been demanding certain changes in the cabinet and the party and the high command did not concede the demand despite initially organising meetings to sort out differences. This has actually been the cause for the Tripura BJP party member’s indifference and might soon affect its smooth functioning.
