Agartala: Four days after the Tripura chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb’s statement went viral and was criticised across India, Nepal and Sri Lanka, the BJP North-East Zonal Secretary, Ajay Jamwal arrived in the state capital on Wednesday.
The BJP leader, along with RSS region in-charge, Ullas Kulkarni and Nikhil Niwaskar, state in-charge held a meeting to discuss the matter and organisational issues in the state.
CM Biplab Kumar Deb had revealed that the former BJP national president Amit Shah plans to establish a BJP government in neighbouring Sri Lanka and Nepal during a party program in Rabindra Satabarshiki Bhavan on Saturday last.
Deb had said that Shah, during his visit to Tripura, said that he plans to establish the party in neighbouring countries after winning in most of the states in India.
“We were talking in the state guest house when Ajay Jamwal (North-East Zonal Secretary of BJP) said that BJP formed the government in several states of India, Shah said, now Sri Lanka and Nepal are left. We have to expand the party in Sri Lanka, Nepal and win there to form a government,” Deb said quoting Amit Shah.
Jamwal, who arrived in the state in the morning, held a meeting with the chief minister and expressed his dissatisfaction over his statement, informing the party sources.
“The central leadership has reportedly taken a strong note over his statement and asked Ajay Jamwal to meet him and discuss the matter personally,” said a BJP senior leader.
The Opposition CPIM and Congress had demanded action and clarification from the central leadership over the claim made by the chief minister of Tripura in a public meeting.
