Read why BJP is restricting membership for six months in Tripura

Following the BJP’s miraculous victory in Tripura in the recently concluded Assembly elections, Sunil Deodhar, the man who played a key role in BJP’s win, has said that the party will stop recruiting workers from other parties in a bid to prevent people with a criminal history to be recruited in the party.

Condemning demolition of communist leader Lenin’s statue in Tripura, Deodhar, in a press event in Pune, accused communist workers of conducting violence while wearing t-shirts with Prime Minister Modi’s photograph to scare people off. In a bid to stop the ‘political goondaism’ in the state, BJP Tripura has decided to stop recruiting party cadres.

Deodhar further said that several communist workers have minted money through various government schemes under the previous 25-year long communist rule led by Manik Sarkar. Now with the change in government, such activities would stop, drying out their financial sources. Hence they will look at joining the party in power, BJP. Accusing many of these workers of having a criminal background, Deodhar said that new members will be added only after a thorough background check has been conducted on them.

He alleged that under the previous government 67% people of the state were living below poverty line and crime against women as well as the overall crime had gone up in the state, which had angered people. He further added that Biplab Kumar Deb led government in Tripura will focus on bringing about law and order and creating employment opportunities as well as building infrastructure.
