The All India Trinamool Congress (AITC), in April 29, claimed that the name of the party’s supremo, Mamata Banerjee, is “enough to win elections” and the party will not look for any alliance with other political parties ahead of the upcoming elections.

“We will not convince any political party for alliance for the upcoming poll. The name of Mamata Banerjee is enough for a strong political fight. The recently held urban body election has proved how people have voted in favour of us. We will work hard to come first in the forthcoming elections be it bye-polls or the general elections,” said state in-charge of AITC, Rajiv Banerjee, on April 29.

He also said that the people of Tripura have chosen TMC to shoulder the responsibility of principal opposition in the state.

The state in-charge also accused the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of creating political instability in the state by resorting to violence. “After the BJP came to power in Tripura, the state has had large scale political instability. Several incidents of attacks on opposition party workers have been reported from the state,” he said.

The AITC also announced a 132-member state committee for Tripura, which is scheduled to go for polls in March 2023.
