Tripura remains backward despite 24-year LF rule: Union minister

26 Oct 2017

Union minister Dr Virendra Kumar today alleged that Tripura remained backward though the Left Front has been ruling the state for 24 long years.
The performance of the state government in minority welfare and social welfare is not up to the mark and women are not getting the facilities due to them, Kumar said. "Tripura remained so backward, though the Marxists are ruling the state for 24 years. They have no success in healthcare, education and employment of the youth," the Union minister of state for women empowerment and minority welfare told a press conference.
Winds of change are blowing in the state, he said adding that BJP would form the next government in Tripura. The Assembly election for the 60-member house is scheduled to be held in February next year. The Union minister alleged that the law and order had collapsed in the state and common people, especially women, have no security. Kumar, BJP MP from Tikamgarh in Madhya Pradesh, reviewed activities of minority affairs with state government officials in the Civil Secretariat yesterday.
