We will win all the two Lok Sabha seats with huge margin. There is no effective opposition here. Whoever would contest would lose their security deposit. We would gift two lotus flowers from Tripura to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who would win again in the Parliament elections, he said.
Ram Madhav said he came to look after the political activities in the state.
I have not come to Tripura since the government was formed. The state governments performance is good in the run-up to panchayat by-elections. I have come to see the political activity here," he said.
