AGARTALA, Aug 16 - The Indigenous People�s Front of Tripura (IPFT) is ready to initiate a dialogue with the BJP�s central leadership on seat sharing for the Lok Sabha elections, slated next year.
An IPFT delegation led by party supremo NC Debbarma will go to New Delhi to attend an Election Commission-convened meeting, slated for August 27.
During the visit, the IPFT delegation will try to meet the BJP�s central leadership for a dialogue on a seat sharing deal for the two Lok Sabha constituencies in the State.
Confirming the plan, IPFT spokesman Mangal Debbarma said today: �We want to contest both the Lok Sabha constituencies in the forthcoming general elections. However, the IPFT will keep the options open for an alliance with the BJP. All depends on the BJP�s central leadership.� NEDA chairman Himanta Biswa Sarma will also be in New Delhi during the IPFT delegation�s visit, Debbarma said, adding that the party is not against fighting the elections together with the BJP.
