Guwahati, December 29. 2019:
In a show of strength in Tripura, BJP swept the Tripura civic byeelections in a landslide. The ruling party fronted by controversial Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb in the state, won 66 out of 67 seats. The last seat was won by the CPM. The Indian National Congress, which is rebounding in the national political hemisphere after an impressive showing in the assemble elections, did not manage to secure a single seat.
Great news coming from Tripura!
Heartiest Congratulations to @BjpBiplab & Karyakartas of @BJP4Tripura on winning 11 out of 11 Municipal councils & 4 out of 4 seats in Agartala Municipal corporation. @INCIndia & @cpimspeak have lost deposits in almost all seats.@BJP4India
