Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb addressed the media a day after the civic polls in the state. The final voting figure for the Agartala Municipal Corporation and Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) stood at 81.58%.
“The turnout of women voters in 3 Nagar panchayats was more than male voters,
which is a big deal for Tripura,” said the CM.
He said four voters above the age of 100 also turned up to cast their votes. Two 107-year-olds, one 105-year-old and one 103-year-old exercised their franchise this time.
“There was a festive fervour among people on voting day and a record 81.58 per cent voting was registered in Tripura. The huge voter turnout signals towards people’s faith in the government,” said Deb.
“I hope that the way the people of Tripura decided for the state in 2018, they have put their stamp on the BJP in all the elections,” said the Tripura CM, hoping for people’s support for his party in this election too.
