Agartala: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to address the first election rally in poll-bound Tripura in last week of October and BJP has been working on the target to hold at least two-rallies in two parts of the State during Modi’s visit.

While addressing the booth-level meeting of the BJP, the party President Biplab Kumar Deb indicated that the party has been preparing for election and to hold mammoth rallies during Prime Minister’s Tripura visit.

He said besides strengthening organisation at grass root level, the BJP has been ready to go for election at any point of time and now micro level campaign of the party has been going on to reach out individual voters.

“The booth level leaders were given direction to concentrate on their localities and interact with each of the voters besides, regular political activities. Already Central Ministers and leaders are started coming to the State and we are preparing for Prime Minister’s arrival,” Deb stated.

He further pointed out that the BJP leaders and workers have been campaigning at village-level on the welfare schemes of the Central government and against the failure of the Left Front government in Tripura.

“In many a cases it appeared that CPI(M) convinced the common people that Central projects, which have been introduced by the Modi government are the State projects. We are trying to tell the truth to the commoners,” Deb stated.
