BJP will go it alone in the February 14 Assembly elections in Tripura.
"We have decided not to contest the election jointly with any ally though a few small political parties like Janata Dal(United) and Gana Mancha have shown interest to make poll alliance with us," president of the state party unit Sudhindra Dasgupta said on Wednesday.
"It is a fact that BJP has no organizational network in every place of the state. So we have decided to put up candidates where we are strong," he said adding the party has started campaigning in full scale.
BJP Tripura state committee had declared a 41-member candidates list for election to the 60-member Assembly.
The party has no presence in the Assembly or in local bodies.
Speaking about the poll issues, Dasgupta said: "Our campaign would include issues of cent per cent security to women, corruption-free administration and safety and security of people in the state."
