“This government is destroying the upcoming future. Crimes especially crimes against women are increasing like anything. In 2018 BJP has released vision documents but now people have understood that this all is jumla (fake). A section of BJP leaders and workers are looting the money of people and businessmen outside of Tripura and capturing everything in the state. BJP-IPFT government has dragged the state near destruction and people now want freedom for this, we have appealed of forming a government. Left and Congress will contest together and confident that we will form government in 2023”, Kar added.

We will work to develop the health infrastructure. If we voted to power our party will work for the development of tribals, SC, and OBC people”, said Kar.
He also said the left front promised all the people that the party will bring democracy and will return all kinds of rights to people.
