"No curfew has been imposed in the state", Adityanath said. Jaitley had released the document on Sunday. Their demand, aimed at carving out a state from the three-fourth land area falling under the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC), generated fear and resentment among Bengalis, who constitute more than 65 percent non-tribal population in a state of four million people. "The Government of India has allocated huge funds to social sector schemes and will spend close to Rs 1,70,000 crore on the right to food", said Jaitely.

If Congress is to arrest the perception of decline in the region which threatens to worsen the National picture for the party, managers say it has to deliver on two fronts - retain power in Meghalaya and come up with a decent performance in Nagaland where it appears to be the only alternative pole to the overt or hidden alliance of regional parties and the BJP.
BJP did not win a single seat in Meghalaya in 2013 elections and has fielded candidates in 47 seats for the state this year.
The CPI (M)-led Left Front government, which is ruling Tripura since 1993, did not face much difficulties in winning elections all these years with the Congress putting up a weak challenge against the left regime.
The Left has been finished off in the world and the Congress is fading away in the country, Shah claimed. "That will, of course, depend upon the work of local leaders who are campaigning", said Gogoi. "The people of Tripura remained neglected", she said at the rally.
