At the outset of Bharatiya Janata Party's noteworthy victory in Tripura civic election 2021, BJP's IT wing in-charge Amit Malviya said 'it is just the beginning'. On the other hand, the All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) affirmed itself as the 'strongest Opposition' in the state and vouched to end BJP's 'ruthless anarchy'.

Both reactions hold relevance as BJP swept clean the Tripura municipal elections 2021 by bagging majority in 29 of 51 wards. The Election Commission stated that there are 334 seats in urban local bodies - the Agartala Municipal Corporation (AMC), 13 Municipal Councils and 6 Nagar Panchayats in the state. It was brought to the fore that BJP has established an absolute majority in the 51-ward AMC after the Tripura election results were announced.

'All conspiracies, fake narratives about religious tension etc' 

Taking a jibe at TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee, Malviya shared on Twitter, "Politics of violence and intimidation has its shelf life. More political humiliation awaits Mamata Banerjee, not just outside Bengal, but even in Bengal. Tripura is just the beginning."

"BJP has swept Tripura local body polls. Spare a thought for the entire opposition, new kids on the block and sponsored media, which finally figured Tripura’s existence after BJP came to power in the State. All conspiracies, fake narratives about religious tension etc bite dust," he shared. 

TMC emerges as 'strongest Opposition' Tripura municipal election, 2021

On the other hand, TMC ended up as the 'strongest Opposition' after the Tripura municipal election 2021. Establishing notions similar to BJP's that the latest result 'is just the beginning', TMC shared, "We thank the people of Tripura and Maa Tripureshwari for blessing us abundantly. Despite rigging, threats, violence - we stand firmly as the strongest Opposition in the state. Your RUTHLESS ANARCHY (BJP) will soon come to an end. Keep watching."

The elections were contested majorly between three parties - the BJP, the TMC and CPI(M). Tripura municipal election 2021 was not spared of rigging allegations. TMC officials earlier made claims that party workers were beaten up in Agartala during the elections.

Meanwhile, CPI-M state secretary Jiten Chaudhary on Thursday alleged that the ruling party members were intimidating voters across various districts. He added that they were also obstructing party workers from functioning freely near the polling booths. However, the BJP refuted allegations and its spokesperson Nabendu Bhattacharya said that the voting had begun on 'celebratory spirit'.
