Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha reviewed the preparations for tomorrow's rallies at Amarpur and Kumarghat today (February 2). Rajya Sabha MP Biplab Kumar Deb also reviewed preparations in both places yesterday.


According to sources, after the Vijay Sankalp rally, BJP's Union ministers, senior leaders and chief ministers of other states, including Tripura, will make efforts to create an atmosphere in favour of the saffron party and boost it's prospect in February 16 Assembly Polls by holding 35 small and big rallies in the state.
