Prof K Nageshwar said that people in Tripura have voted for BJP as they wanted change from the 25-year CPM rule. Nageshwar said Ram Madhav was successful in bringing BJP to power in Tripura, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh by his tactics. The BJP appointed Ram Madhav as in-charge of party affairs in Andhra Pradesh. He said that the tactics employed by Ram Madhav in northeastern states will not work in Andhra Pradesh. There are no similarities between Tripura and Andhra Pradesh in all aspects, he added.
