Congress has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Indigenous Nationalist Party of Twipra (INPT), a regional outfit, for the Lok Sabha elections, state Congress chief Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma said on Sunday.
This is the second time in the Tripura’s political history that an MoU has been signed for forging an alliance between two political parties. “An MoU was signed a week ago between All India Congress Committee, state Congress and INPT in New Delhi,” Pradyot told reporters at a joint press conference with INPT. In the MoU, both agreed to fight the LS polls on issues, including scrapping of the Citizenship Amendment Bill.
Congress has fielded Subal Bhowmik, who recently joined after quitting BJP from Tripura West constituency and Pragya Deb Burman, a social activist, in Tripura East. “If any other party wants to support us, our doors are open,” said Pradyot.
