Now, communists want to join BJP in Tripura: Deodhar
Pune: BJP’s national executive committee member and in-charge of Tripura, Sunil Deodhar, said law and order will be the new government’s top priority. The statement came after a statue of Lenin was razed in the northeastern state. “After the election results, members of the communist party have been approaching the BJP, but we have stalled enrollment of new members for six months to keep anti-social elements at bay, as law and order is our top priority,” Deodhar said.
Deodhar, who has been described as the chief architect of BJP’s win in Tripura, was in Pune on Monday. The Pune Union of working journalists had organised an interactive session with media persons where he spoke about the strategy used by BJP to dislodge communist rule in the Northeastern state and the agenda of new government.
Deodhar said, “The communist party cadre can not stay away from power. They use power to generate money for themselves.”
“We will be verifying the background of the people wanting to join the BJP,” he said.
