Amit Shah begins early to end 24-year Left rule in Tripura

Bharatiya Janata Party has started preparations for next year's assembly polls in the northeastern state of Tripura, with its president Amit Shah devising a strategy to take on the Marxists in its bastion. Shah will address a workers' rally and prepare a course of action during his visit to the state on May 6.

BJP's clout has been growing in the region in recent times, which is evident from the rising number of memberships in Tripura - it has swelled from 15,000 in 2014 to over 2 lakh this year.

BJP's strategy in Tripura involves sending central ministers to the state regularly to educate the people on the central government-sponsored schemes and point out the lapses in their implementation by the state government. Tripura has been ruled by the Left Front for the past 24 years.
