AICC leaders meet Tripura CM, seek his intervention over poll violence

Lok Sabha MP Adhir Chowdhury informed that the Chief Minister also said that he himself does not support violence and that such culture should end in the state.

AGARTALA:

A delegation of the All India Congress Committee (AICC), on June 27, met with Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha to seek his intervention on the incidents of alleged violence carried out by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-backed miscreants across the state after the results of by-elections were declared on June 26.

The three-member delegation comprising Lok Sabha MP Adhir Chowdhury, Deputy leader of AICC in Lok Sabha Gourav Gogoi and Congress MP Naseeruddin Hossain met the chief minister along with AICC Tripura in-charge Ajoy Kumar and secretary Szarita Laitphlang.

Addressing the press at the Congress Bhavan, Chowdhury said that they have discussed the matter with the Chief Minister and the latter has also heard all of their grievances.

“The Chief Minister has assured us of full support and in case of any emergency, his doors are open for our leaders. We thank him for his hospitality and positive attitude towards the opponent,” he said.

The MP informed that the Chief Minister also said that he himself does not support violence and that such culture should end in the state.

The Congress delegation also visited the residence of Indian National Congress Tripura president Birajit Sinha who was injured during a clash in front of their Agartala office on Sunday.

Gogoi, who also joined the press conference, said the by-election is just a trailer and the people of Tripura are ready to oust the BJP in the 2023 assembly elections.

Congressman Hossain, on the other hand, trained his guns on the police and civil administration and asked whether the people of Tripura have the right to enjoy an impartial administration.

Newly-elected Congress MLA Sudip Roy Barman later informed that a total 15 workers were injured and hospitalised during the violence, and incidents of arson and ransacking have also been reported from Khowai, Kamalsagar, Belonia and Bishalgarh.
