AGARTALA: In a fight between two partners of the Tripura government BJP and IPFT over the selection of Chairman of Block Advisory Committees (BAC) under ADC have been continued in the state.

The violent supporters of IPFT have locked Lefunga block of West Tripura yesterday that prompted Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Varma to called meeting with the leaders of both the parties to control the situation.

However, the situation in Khowai, Mohanpur and Shantirbazar sub-divisions has not yet been clam down. The Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb two weeks ago warned IPFT leaders to control their cadres and comply with the decision of the government otherwise, to leave the government.

The situation was improved immediately after the warning but it turns violent again. The IPFT wanted to get Chairman of all BACs under ADC but BJP did not agree.

The dispute led to an exodus from IPFT to BJP in few places, which had made IPFT workers violent. More than 21 such incidents were reported in last one and half months between BJP and IPFT.

Latest, in past two days at least seven IPFT supporters were injured during the BJP-IPFT clash at Birchandra Manu in Shantirbazar.

There was a blockade in Khowai and Lefunga over the dispute. The situation in both the places remained violent.

Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Varma said that government and the leaders of both the parties have been working closely to resolve the issue and necessary steps have been taken to maintain law and order in the state.
