- The Union Home Ministry was ordered to deploy at least two companies of Central Armed Police
- In the election-bound Tripura, opposition parties have charged the ruling BJP government of posing violence
- However, BJP spokesperson has denied allegations claiming that polls were going on in a celebratory atmosphere
On Thursday, The Supreme Court (SC) has instructed the Tripura State Election Commission (SEC) to urgently posit at least two companies of additional forces to ensure peaceful voting in the state. The Union home ministry was asked by the top court to provide the state with two battalions of Central Armed Police Forces.
Opposition parties have brought charges of violence against the ruling BJP government of the state, which is currently election-bound. According to the Trinamool Congress (TMC), their party workers have been bashed up in Agartala. CPI(M) state secretary has charged the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of terrifying the voters in south Tripura.
However, BJP spokesperson Nabendu Bhattacharya has denied such charges and said that polls were being held in a celebratory mood. The current political situation of Tripura witnesses a three-party with the TMC trying to gain significant ground, the BJP struggling back and the CPI(M) trying to repossess power. The votes will be counted from November 28.
