Responding to the announcement of committees ahead of the election, former TPCC president Gopal Chandra Roy thanked the AICC for making him the head of the political affairs committee.
“The AICC has instructed all the TPCC leaders right from booth to pradesh congress committee level to work together to bring down the BJP government from power in the 2023 Assembly elections”, he said.
The Congress, once a formidable political force in the Northeastern state, was routed in the 2018 Assembly elections when it polled less than 2 per cent votes. At present, the Congress has one legislator in the 60-member Tripura Assembly.
