Tripura said he did not receive any notice and has asked his election agent to collect it.

When contacted, state BJP spokesperson Nabendu Bhattacharya said “Tripura (the candidate) is well within the limit approved by the returning officer concerned. It would not be a problem.”

The Election Commission had on Tuesday announced postponement of polling in the East Tripura seat to the third phase on April 23 from April 18, saying the prevailing law and order situation there is not conducive for holding free and fair polls.

Elections for the first phase were held in West Tripura seat on April 11, and the Congress and CPI (M) demanded re-poll in 460 polling stations on the ground of alleged rigging by the ruling party.
