CM Manik Saha said, CPI-M still a threat to BJP in Tripura

Agartala: Despite being out of power in Tripura for six years, the CPI-M remains an important political force in the state, according to Chief Minister Manik Saha.
Bringing back its decades-long rule from 1978 to 2018, he emphasized the CPI-M’s enduring support base, he told PTI in an interview.
Saha acknowledged the recent losses in key constituencies in Tripura but expressed confidence in the BJP’s prospects in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Saha expressed confidence in the victory of BJP candidates in the state’s two Lok Sabha seats, Biplab Kumar Deb for Tripura West and Kriti Singh Debbarma for Tripura East.
In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the CPI-M secured 17.5% of the vote, which increased to 24.62% during the assembly elections four years later.
Despite allying with the Congress and contesting 43 seats, the party managed only 11 victories, five fewer than in 2018.
Despite criticism from the opposition, Saha dismissed claims that democracy was under threat under Modi’s leadership.
