Agartala, Jun 15, 2021, ENEWSTIME Desk
After announcing that four top level leaders including one national general secretary will hold organizational meetings during their two-day stay in Tripura from Wednesday, Tripura BJP spokesperson Subrata Chakraborty also categorically mentioned that BJP is neither concerned nor worried about possibility of re-emergence Trinamool Congress (TMC), for that matter any regional party of other State, in Tripura.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Chakraborty said BJP’s organizational secretary for Assam and Tripura, Phanindranath Sharma arrived in Agartala today while three other leaders - national general secretary (organization) B.L. Santosh, North East general secretary (organization) Ajay Jamwal and Tripura’s observer Vinod Sonkar – will be arriving on Wednesday.
After series of organizational meetings – 18 meetings so far and 30 meetings are on cards - by Tripura BJP president Dr Manik Saha, visit of top leaders triggered speculation. However, Chakraborty clearly said the visit is part of routine and scheduled practice of the saffron party. Chakraborty also said, remaining organizational meetings of Dr Saha will be held after completion of the two-day visit by the central leaders.
He also detailed about upcoming party activities as proposed by the Central leadership as well as the State leadership during the Covid crisis period. He also took the opportunity to thank, on behalf of the State BJP unit, the Prime Minister for extending PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana till Diwali benefitting 80 crore families of the country and the Tripura Chief Minister for providing Covid special relief package to 7 lakh families of the State.
Reacting to possibility of re-emergence of Trinamool Congress (TMC) in Tripura, Chakraborty said, any party can participate in democratic process in any State. In the past, several regional Parties of other States including Trinamool Congress contested in polls. But, people decisively rejected them.
People of Tripura are democratically conscious and well aware. They have seen regional parties of other States come to Tripura before polls like migratory birds. Moreover, people are watching the post-poll violence unleashed by Trinamool Congress (TMC) in Bengal.
“So, we are not at all bothered about Trinamool Congress. We are confident that people will reject them, once again”, Chakraborty said.
