Agartala, Jul 28, 2021, ENEWSTIME Desk

Blazing all guns, Tripura Pradesh BJP came down heavily of visiting Trinamool Congress (TMC) and alleged TMC leaders are eyeing on gaining 6 per cent to save its All India party tag.


Verbal salvos from the saffron party leaders came up after three TMC leaders – Bratya Basu, Maloy Ghatak and Ritabrata Banerjee – arrived in Agartala on three-day tour and criticized the State Government at a press conference in Agartala on I-PAC issue on Wednesday. However, BJP leader defended the steps taken against the I-PAC team and clarified the reasons behind such steps.


Besides, Post Poll violence in Bengal, TMC’s earlier ventures in Tripura and several other issues were mentioned by BJP leaders in a press meet in Agartala today, after TMC’s press conference.


BJP leaders alleged that 3 TMC leaders had arrived in Agartala with a ‘condemnable blue print’ to defame the State and ‘insult’ the people of the State.  


Addressing the press meet, MLA Ratan Chakraborty alleged, TMC is playing a game with Tripura and only keen to garner 6 percent votes to save the All India Trinamool signboard. He also said, CPM has been reduced to a rubber stamp and TMC is trying to create a front in Tripura against BJP with the help of CPM. He, however, said that people of Tripura are now marching forward and such tactics won’t work.


In this context, Ratan Chakraborty highlighted the developmental initiatves of Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and said, Deb is stewarding Tripura towards prosperity by promoting the agri and allied sector products. “Biplab Kumar Deb is working to make people self-reliant and Tripura is making a steady progress under his leadership.     


Spokesperson of State BJP, Subrata Chakraborty accused TMC of ‘murdering democracy’ in West Bengal and highlighted the post-poll violence unleashed allegedly by the TMC. Painting a violent face of TMC, Chakraborty said, a total of 3010 BJP activists were attacked, 934 died and houses of 6076 activists were set ablaze since after the poll results were announced.  More than One lakh BJP activists had to leave West Bengal due to the violence.


Explaining the I-PAC issue, Subrata Chakraborty said, I-PAC members were roaming around different areas and were violating the Covid pandemic protocols. He alleged, the I-PAC members even violated the Corona Curfew and Weekend Curfew.


These members failed to produce any document to justify that they were providing any essential services. For the safety of public health, the State Health department decided to re-conduct RT-PCR test on them. Moreover, administration took legal action against them for breaking Covid protocols etc.


Slamming the Trinamool leaders for attempting to misguide people, another BJP spokesperson Nabendu Bhattacharjee exuded confidence that people of the State will foil the plan of the TMC.
