Agartala(Tripura): Charges and counter charges by two major rival parties dominate pre election campaign  in  Tripura. The war of words between the rivals is  also creating high poll fever though election schedule is  yet  to be announced .
.It is likely that the EC may announce poll schedule shortly after final publication of voter list .The final voters  list will be  published  on 5 th January as announced by Chief Election Commissioner during his recent Agartala visit .
The BJP which has already emerged as the  main opposition accused the ruling CPM saying that the party in power hungry  and spreading communal fear among the various  communities  living in state. The ruling CPM is playing communal card for protecting its “fort” like Tripura.
 Lambasting CPM  Biplab Dev, President of BJP Tripura unit accused the  CPM of  creating communal hatred. He questioned  CPM  why  they were  fighting on  development slogans?
On the other hand CPM alleged that BJP has been trying to foment communal tension between tribal and non tribals  living in state since long , They alleged  that BJP workers are involved in damaging deities in different places of the  state.
In a sharp reaction BJP state president said that their party workers are in no way  involved in such damaging acts . He questioned why BJP workers would be involved in such damaging acts? No Hindu can damage such deities, only non believers can damage the deities.
However above all political temperature is  constantly increasing that is  centered in ensuing assembly election. Observers believes that this assembly election would be very crucial as  the Left Front  led by CPM is  facing a tough  challenges from the BJP.
