Agartala (Tripura) [India], Mar 14 (ANI): BJP general secretary Ram Madhav on Wednesday held the first round of seat sharing arrangement with alliance partner Indigenous Peoples Front of Tripura (IPFT) for the two Lok Sabha seats in Tripura.
He told media persons here, “We had the first round of discussions today, our Deputy CM (Jishnu Dev Varma) will have another round by evening or tomorrow morning and finalise electoral understanding with the IPFT.”
