Overcoming all hurdles, Trinamool Congress (TMC) will wrest power from the CPI(M)-led Left Front in Tripura in the 2018 Assembly elections, a top TMC leader on Sunday said.
“We will wrest power from the Left Front by overcoming all hurdles. This is our mission. People of the plains and hills of Tripura will vote for us and we will present them with good governance,” TMC vice-president Mukul Roy said at a mass gathering.
Altogether 2,150 supporters of different political parties like CPI(M), Congress and CPI(ML) today joined TMC in presence of Roy.
“TMC is now a national party and Congress is a party of circus, which lost all its teeth in Tripura and has no ability to deliver any good anywhere in the country,” Roy said.
The CPI(M) is a “divided house” in the state and has failed to provide good governance and was ruling the state by its might as Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee did in West Bengal, he claimed.
“In Tripura, 68 per cent of the population live below poverty line, eight lakh people are landless and there is no electricity or drinking water in the hilly areas. This government has no moral right to remain in power,” Roy added.
