As Tripura grapples with post-poll violence, opposition accuses BJP of unleashing mayhem

Post-poll violence has plunged Tripura into disarray – yet again. At least three people have died since the results of the Lok Sabha elections were declared on May 23 in incidents that the local press claims are the consequences of political rivalry. Hundreds lay injured in hospitals across the state, according to opposition parties. On Wednesday, the state’s chief minister Biplab Deb of the Bharatiya Janata Party issued an appeal to “all political parties to extend co-operation to end the violence”. The BJP, which stormed to power in Tripura in 2018 dislodging the Communist Party of India (Marxist), won both of the state’s parliamentary seats. The Congress finished second, and the incumbent Left was reduced to a distant third. The police, however, insist that the deaths were for “other reasons”. “They are not connected to political parties – underlying issue is something different,” said a senior police officer from the state who did not want to be named.
