Alleging that democracy is in danger in Tripura, the Trinamool Congress Friday hit out at the ruling BJP at an event during which 30 Congress and BJP leaders joined the TMC.
Tripura Youth Congress working president Santanu Saha said he joined the Trinamool Congress as he wanted to forge a unified struggle against the BJP.
“Mamata Banerjee is the only one capable of fighting the BJP in India. Congress leaders in Tripura have lack of public connect and able leadership like Banerjee to defeat BJP. So, thirty of us, including Congress and BJP leaders, have joined TMC.”
Meanwhile, the BJP’s youth wing, the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, held a protest rally and alleged that the opposition CPM and TMC are involved in a nexus and conspiracy against Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb.
TMC MP Dr Santanu Sen said the Biplab Deb government is trying to trample the voice of the TMC in Tripura.
However, BJP state president Dr Manik Saha said his party is not worried about Trinamool. “TMC doesn’t have any rank and file in Tripura. Some overenthusiastic people have joined them but the net result will be zero.”
