Agartala: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national secretary Ram Lal said that the party here plans to uproot the Left Front from its last bastion Tripura by the year 2018.
"Communism has wiped away from the countries where it was born and in India also the party tried to spread but could not go ahead of Kerala, West Bengal and Tripura and managed to get few MLA or MP seats. The people of Bengal, though little late but realised and hence, they put them down from power," said BJP national secretary Ram Lal on the occasion of birth anniversary of Vivekananda.
"Similarly, the people of Kerala also understood and kept them out of power. Today on the birth anniversary of Vivekananda, I want to say to the people of Tripura that Communists are not for the good of our nation, the farmers or the working class people," he added.
"In Tripura also they are ruling in the same manner and so, on this birth anniversary of Vivekananda the people of the state has to vow to remove Communist from power by the time the election comes in 2018," he said.
The leader also said that the scenario should be like this in 2018 that the fight is between CPI-M and BJP.
"As Congress has already realised that they shall be nowhere in India, so without any doubt that in the manner corruption cases are coming out in the 2018 election BJP shall get voters in its side and come to power," he said.
On the occasion, Congress leader Subal Bhowmik who had once formed the Tripura Grammin Congress had joined the BJP along with 6000 supporters.
BJP Northeast cell leader and in-charge of Tripura, Sunil Deodhar was also present on the occasion.
