The Trinamool Congress’s Tripura state in-charge and former West Bengal Minister Rajib Banerjee said, “Since India’s independence especially during the Left Front’s 35 year’s governance (1978 to 1988 and 1993 to 2018) and BJP led government’s 51 months rule, people of Tripura not only deprived but also suffered and shattered with huge undemocratic activities, violence and atrocities. All these would be highlighted in the “Tripura Files.”
He added “With the strength and guidance of Mamata Banerjee, the TMC would also defeat the BJP in Tripura in the upcoming by-elections and in the early next year’s general elections to the state assembly. All the social schemes functional in Bengal to be introduced in Tripura without any additional financial burden or imposing any tax”.
The Trinamool Congress fielded candidates in four assembly seats on June 23 — Panna Deb (Agartala), Sanhita Bhattacharya (Banerjee) (Town Bordowali), Arjun Sarkar (Surma) and Dr Mrinal Kanti Dev (Jubarajnagar).
Assembly polls are slated for early next year.
