AGARTALA, March 15 - The dialogue between BJP and its ally IPFT failed last night with both parties rigid on their respective stands on seat adjustment in the upcoming Parliamentary elections, according to sources.

While IPFT is insisting to contest the East Tripura Lok Sabha seat, the BJP is determined to field candidates in both the Parliamentary constituencies in the State leading to a stalemate.

Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Varma, who was entrusted to convince IPFT leaders on the seat sharing deal, had a meeting with top IPFT leaders in his official residence on Thursday night. But the meeting remained inconclusive with both parties stuck on their old demands.

IPFT leader Mangal Debbarma said the party will stick to its earlier decision of contesting the East Tripura Lok Sabha seat and a decision has already been taken by the party�s top leadership.

�We are waiting for the meeting of Members of Central Committee (MCC) on Saturday. After the meeting, we will declare our candidates for both the seats�, he said.

However, BJP is still hopeful of contesting both the Parliamentary constituencies with full support from its ally IPFT. �Yes, we could not find a solution to the problem of seat adjustment in the last night�s meeting. We will meet again to solve the problem. But BJP is set to contest in both the Lok Sabha seats�, said BJP general secretary Rajib Bhattacharjee.

By March 16, the BJP parliamentary board will declare its first list of candidates where party nominees for the two seats in Tripura will find place, according to party sources.
