Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha has urged Bharatiya Janata Party workers to continue their tireless work, which will eventually help the party to secure victory in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2024.
Manik Saha said this while addressing a felicitation program at the Boxanagar Assembly Constituency in the Sepahijala district.
“People have come to understand that Prime Minister Narendra Modi means development, and they have realised how a section of the party used them for vote bank politics in the past. Due to ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vishwas’, we won the election. All the leaders worked tirelessly for the election, and I also visited here repeatedly. Many have raised questions about a CM visiting these two assemblies just for a by-election, but before being Chief Minister, I am first and foremost a Karyakarta (worker),” Manik Saha said.
He stated that the tireless efforts of Karyakartas at all levels have led to massive success in the recently concluded by-election, setting an example for the entire country.
“The previous Government did not focus on development, but we are striving for it. PM Modi has redefined politics and we have followed the same. During CPI (M) tenure, elections were marred by violence, but this time, not a single violent incident occurred during the election. We successfully instilled faith in the people regarding BJP,” Tripura CM said.
While urging workers to work tirelessly for the Lok Sabha polls, the Chief Minister stated, “The Lok Sabha election is also approaching, and if we work hard as Karyakartas, I can confidently say that people will vote for us. They don’t want division; they want unity. The state has experienced ‘divide and rule’ during the CPIM’s rule.”
During the program, BJP State president Rajib Bhattacharya, BJP MLA Tofajjal Hossain, BJP general secretary Papia Datta and others were present.
