Tripura Left Front heading for massive victory

By Correspondent

AGARTALA, May 7 � The CPM-led Left Front is heading for a massive victory in the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) election by bagging almost all the seats.

Of the total seats (27), the CPM won 21 seats alone while its ally CPI bagged one and the ruling front is heading in the remaining six constituencies, according to reports.

The opposition Congress and INPT suffered yet another serious set back because they could not open their kitty this year too. In fact, they are distantly trailing the Left Front candidates.

Congress�s move to contest the election alone proved as suicidal act since it could not make a mark in the electoral battle in the State�s tribal belts. The INPT finished at second position in all declared 22 constituencies giving a new realignment in the Left-ruled State.

Earlier, the counting began in 15 centers amidst tight security on Friday. The counting of polled ballots is expected to be over by 10.30 pm, said an official of the State Election Commission here on Friday. �We can�t give anything beyond results because detailed break up and party wise votes are yet to be compiled�, he said.

Terming the election results as positive mandate, Bijan Dhar, CPM State secretary, said the results of the ADC elections show that the tribal people are still with the Left Front and they want continuity in the development work under taken by the Front�, he said. Dhar vowed that the Left Front would further empower the tribal council to fulfill the aspirations of the tribal people.
