"The Congress contested in 13 seats. Some parties thought they would get the majority on their own while others deliberately branded themselves as the kingmaker. Ultimately, these factors played in favour of the BJP. The Congress party will continue its fights against the BJP and in the interest of the people, we shall take a constructive stand. In only seven seats, BJP somehow won by themselves but the split in vote shares of opposition parties helped the BJP to back in power again”, he said.
Claiming that the poll results are unexpected, Roy Barman said they shall soon review the reasons behind the failures.
Roy Barman has claimed that for the first time in the history of Tripura, a ruling party formed a government with 38.97 per cent votes and claimed that more than 60 per cent of the electors voted against BJP.
