CPI(M) Hails Tripura Victory
The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) issued the following statement on March 1, 2011.
THE Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) extends its warm greetings to the people who have voted the Left Front with an overwhelming majority in the Village Committee elections in the Tripura Tribal Autonomous District Council area. The Village Committees are modelled after the gram panchayats in the non-ADC areas.
The Left Front has won 473 Village Committees out of a total of 527. This is 90 per cent of the village committees. The Left Front has also won 85 per cent of the total number of seats to which elections have been held.
These elections show the strong support that the CPI(M) and the Left Front have among the tribal people. The Polit Bureau congratulates the Tripura unit of the CPI(M) for this big victory.
