The meeting was reportedly held on January 14 at the official residence of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in New Delhi.

The Tripura State unit of the CPI(M) on Tuesday urged the Election Commission of India to order an inquiry into the issue of alleged presence of National Security Adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval in a recent political strategy meeting of the BJP in New Delhi.

The meeting was reportedly held on January 14 at the official residence of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

In a letter written to the Chief Election Commissioner, Tripura CPI(M) secretary Bijan Dhar alleged that the BJP violated norms by engaging the NSA for a political purpose, and sought stern action against the party, if the allegations are found to be true.

“You, being an authority to oversee that no political party, either incumbent or in the opposition, does not get an undue electoral opportunity by the use of administration, may I request you to kindly order an appropriate authority for an investigation into the matter,” the letter said .
