Agartala. Abhishek Banerjee, a Trinamool Congress MP and nephew of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, will hold a public meeting in Tripura on September 15. This will be the first large gathering of the party in the state and will be held in Agartala. Let us inform you that after the third push in West Bengal, Mamata’s party is now concentrating on entering Tripura.
Mamata Banerjee has visited Tripura twice in the last two months. A BJP MLA is also expected to join the TMC during the rally. It is said that Banerjee can also walk that day. Violent clashes between activists of the ruling BJP and the opposition CPI (M) have erupted in parts of Tripura this week. Subal Bhowmick, a Trinamool leader from Tripura, said the MC would raise the issue of violence in September at its TMC rally. He said, ‘Tripura is being run by a fascist government. People want change and on September 15 our national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee will come and call for change.

However, the BJP feels the TMC rally is too weak. A BJP leader said, “They are inciting people by bringing in people from outside. Tripura is a peaceful place and they are creating problems. They have no supporters here. Let us tell you that Banerjee had earlier gone to Tripura with IPAC workers, an FIR against Banerjee.” Sushmita Dev, who joined TMC, has also been camping in Tripura for the last 10 days.
Trinamool Congress leader Sushmita Dev on Thursday said her party would conduct a survey in Tripura to help the party assess the acceptability of local leaders. The Trinamool is sending a large number of top leaders to form its party in the northeastern state with the aim of ousting the BJP-led alliance from Tripura in the forthcoming assembly elections. Apart from Dev, Trinamool leaders who have regularly visited Agartala include party general secretary Abhishek Banerjee and West Bengal Education Minister Bratya Basu. Both have been here many times.
