Shah to visit poll-bound Northeast

Amit Shah to make maiden speech in Rajya Sabha today may attack Congress

The BJP chief added that if the north-eastern state doesn't do away with Left rule, it will be reduced to a backward state in terms of women's safety, unemployment, and economic development.

Elections in Meghalaya, Tripura and Nagaland are expected by the end of February. "The more you spread the mud of violence, the better will the Lotus blossom", said Shah to a large gathering in Agartala.

Shah, who is on a three-day tour to the poll-bound northeastern, addressed two rallies in Tripura today and attacked the Manik Sarkar government.

"Our Prime Minister's "Mantra" is reform, perform and transform and the upcoming BJP government in Tripura would act upon these "Mantra" to radically alter the profile of the state".

Pillorying the Mukul Sangma government for corruption, Shah alleged that Congress leaders had built bungalows in Guwahati and Delhi by siphoning off development funds allocated by the Central government. The rate of crimes against women is very high and rule of law does not exist. Shah claimed that in a small state like Tripura, which has a population of a little over 36 lakh, seven lakh youths were unemployed and of them, the upper-age limit of two lakh had expired.

AB de Villiers reached his fifty off 55 deliveries as South Africa went into lunch with a score of 107 for three. The hosts were in deep trouble at 12/3 as paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar destroyed the Proteas top order.

He said that during Congress rule in the Centre, the state of Meghalaya was accorded Rs 5817 crore in the 13 Finance Commission but during Modi's rule in the 14 finance commission Meghalaya was given Rs 25413 cr.

He further said that the Tripura government is not taking any action against the culprits of chit fund because the entire Cabinet of Manik government will be behind the bars.

Now it is inevitable the BJP will form a government in Tripura as the people are determined to uproot the Left Government in the coming elections, he said at another election rally at Kulai School ground in Dhalai district. The CPI (M) is the dominant party in the coalition. "What I want to know is, if he is good, why is the condition of the people of the state not so good", he said.

Meanwhile, in Tripura Assembly, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has been enjoying majority, while Chief Minister Manik Sarkar has been at the helm since 1998.
