By Our Correspondent, 10/03/2019, Agartala

CPI(M) may be all set to loose both the Lok Sabha seats after several decades but the party stands on high moral ground as Election commission for the first time has announced two phase poll for the two seats. On April 11 election will take place in West Tripura and on the next Thursday viz April 18 East Tripura seat will go to poll. This ironically is the first two phases of the seven phase pan India Lok Sabha poll. Counting of poll will take place on May 23 next. It may be mentioned here that a CPI(M) delegation had called on EC in Delhi and demanded drastic steps for making sure thaat free and fair poll takes place in the state. In view of this demand this unprecedented decision has been taken by the EC.
