Tripura election 2018 rally LIVE UPDATES: Blowing the political bugle in Tripura, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on the incumbent CPI(M) and Congress party during his speech. Addressing rallies in Sonamura and Kailashahar, he accused the Manik Sarkar government of stalling all developmental works in the state. Raising the slogan of ‘Chalo Paltai’, PM Modi said people of Tripura are getting low wages due to the indifference of the incumbent state government. Modi’s election rally in the poll-bound Tripura comes a day after the PM lashed out at the opposition Congress in both Houses of Parliament on Wednesday. In Tripura, Modi will target Manik Sarkar-led 25-year-old CPI(M) government in the state. BJP is leaving no stone unturned to grab power in the state, which is arguably the last Left bastion in the country.

Ahead of Modi’s visit to the state, security has been beefed up and the India-Bangladesh international border sealed.
