Later on this day at noon at the Agartala Press Club, CPIM State Secretary Jitendra Chowdhury, Pradesh Congress President Birjit Sinha, MLA Sudip Roy Barman, former MLA Ashish Kumar Saha and the leadership of the Left Front branch organization announced a forum. In the last five years, people's democracy has been endangered due to vote rigging. And from that demand, Congress, CPIM, People's Party, Forward Bloc, RSP, CPI have been forced to come on one stage. All democratic parties have been called upon to come together to preserve and protect the taste, breath, breath of democracy that the people of the state have.

In order to ensure the defeat of the current fascist government. He expressed the opinion that those who think about people's interests instead of personal interests will come to this stage. He also said that the main reason for all political parties to come under one umbrella is to restore democracy. Without democracy, human rights are endangered. People can't express themselves. Even freedom of speech has been lost in five years, he said. He also said that not only the alliance of opposition political parties, but the alliance of all democratic loved ones is being sought. A peaceful deputation will be given to the Chief Electoral Officer on behalf of the people of the entire state on January 21. CPIM State Secretary Jitendra Chowdhury said that a procession will be held from the front of Rabindra Shatabarshiki Bhavan at ten in the morning and will be approached by the Chief Election Commission official.

Jitendra Chowdhury said that an appeal has been made to the Tipra Mathar Supremo about coming together. As he wants to bring together all the political parties, democratic and secular. So the people of the state will come under one umbrella with the Congress and the CPIM as per the wishes of the people, Jitendra Chowdhury said. To secure democracy, people from all parts raised the slogan "My Vote My Right". And march with the national flag because BJP is a danger to democracy. So this initiative has been taken to protect the endangered democracy. Those who want to oust BJP need to come on one stage. Jitendra Chowdhury said that BJP will not be able to announce the list of candidates. Birjit Sinha said, people formed the BJP and IPFT coalition government with many hopes and aspirations.

But people are bitterly fed up with this government. And realizing this, the BJP has adopted the path of terror. So the people of the state are ready to give a proper response to this terror. So Congress and CPIM have decided to come on a platform, said Pradesh Congress President Birjit Sinha. He expressed the hope that he will be able to defeat the BJP government with people. He said, it has been decided to hold a procession and deputation for people who love democracy on January 21. And all will have the national flag in hand. This program will not be held under any party flag. The main slogan will be “My vote is my right and I want to exercise my right to vote.” He also said from the press conference that the fight will be done by sharing seats. Candidates will be given according to the seats in which BJP security can be confiscated. MLA Sudip Roy Barman said the people of the state were very happy about the Congress and CPIM coming closer.

On this day, he said in response to a question of the journalists, "Just as the Congress coalition was killed, the Left Front was also killed." People gave chance to BJP and IPFT coalition later in their time, maybe they will be closed. But it seems they haven't stopped. Rather, it has been seen that the graph of all criminal incidents including murder, rape, gang-rape, kidnapping, home invasion has been on the rise in the last five years. In other words, these injustices have been overshadowed during the coalition government. And he claims that there has been an attempt to hide this information administratively. He said that this coalition government will bring this crime rate to zero in the coming days. He also said that those who have committed corruption and terrorism will not be given Congress seats. He said that even if they want to come, it will not be useful. According to party sources, a final discussion was held on seat sharing in the meeting.
Actually seat sharing is Congress and CPIM. CPIM candidates in 70 percent seats, Congress in 30 percent seats. Both the parties are willing to include youth in the list of candidates. But opposition leader Manik Sarkar was not seen on a stage that day. Manik Sarkar, a long-time veteran politician, set the stage for the alliance. He is also a member of the Politburo for a long time. He has been pushed away by the announcement of today's alliance. But he was the chief minister for 20 years and served as the main leader of the party. Left Front convener Narayan Kar, Congress leader Ashish Kumar Saha and other party leaders were also present in the press conference organized on this day.
