Agartala: Barely hours before the scheduled visit of All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee to Tripura, his posters were found torn in several parts of the state.

The AITC leader, who arrived in Tripura on Monday, will be visiting Tripura Sundari temple and holding an organisational meeting before meeting the press in the afternoon.

Meanwhile, the AITC said that such blatant state-sponsored attacks on democracy can only be seen in BJP-ruled states.

The party also said that in Agartala, posters of AITC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee were found torn on Sunday night. The AITC questioned the BJP-led government if they had allowed this to happen and if strict action would be taken against the miscreants.

Taking to Twitter, AITC’s Tripura unit wrote, “Shocking display of absolute hooliganism by the @BJP4Tripura government! When it comes to BJP, ruthlessness and DISRESPECT FOR DEMOCRACY seems to be running the show. You can keep trying but you cannot erase us from the hearts of the people of #Tripura! Shameful attempt.”

In another tweet, the party wrote: “Such blatant state-sponsored attacks on democracy can only be seen in @BJP4India ruled states! Last night in Agartala, posters of @AITCofficial and Shri @abhishekaitc were torn. Did the @BJP4Tripura govt. allow this? Will strict action be taken against the miscreants?”

With the assembly polls slated to be held in March 2023, AITC has been looking for all possible aspects to set its base with other opposition parties before the polls.

Abhishek Banerjee will travel to Udaipur by road to worship goddess Kali at Tripura Sundari temple and after returning to the city around 3:30 pm, he will meet the press at Hotel Polo Towers.
