The ruling BJP and the opposition Congress-CPI(M) alliance are vying with each other to woo TIPRA Motha, led by a scion of the Tripura royal family into an electoral understanding as the tribal party’s votes will be crucial in determining who will rule the northeastern border state in next month’s election. The party swept the TTAADC elections held in April last year, winning 18 of the 28 seats over the ‘Greater Tipraland’ demand in a direct contest with the ruling BJP-IPFT alliance.
