2023 assembly elections: Amit Shah to flag off BJP’s ‘Rath Yatra’ in Tripura on January 5

Ahead of next year’s assembly elections in Tripura, Home Minister Amit Shah will flag off BJP’s ‘rath yatra’ in the state on January 5. A party leader gave this information.

He said that the eight-day yatra would be flagged off from Dharmanagar in North Tripura district.

BJP state president Rajeev Bhattacharya said Shah would also hold a rally in Sabroom in South Tripura district on the same day.

BJP President JP Nadda will participate in the concluding day program of the Yatra on 12 January.

The ‘Rath Yatra’ has been called ‘Jan Vishwas Yatra’ by the ruling party.

“The party is expected to engage with around 10 lakh people during the yatra, which will cover all the 60 assembly constituencies in the state. There will be 200 rallies and over 100 processions to highlight the welfare activities of the central and state governments, Bhattacharjee said.

At least 10 Union ministers, chief ministers of BJP-ruled states and central leaders are expected to participate in the ‘rath yatra’, he said.

State Information and Cultural Affairs (ICA) Minister Sushant Chowdhary described the scheduled ‘Rath Yatra’ as one of the biggest political programs of the ruling party ahead of next year’s assembly elections.

The “Rath Yatra” will end in Agartala, where Nadda, Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha, Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Verma and former CM Biplab Kumar Deb will address a rally.
