“We challenge the NHRC if they have guts and prestige to visit Tripura and see the kind of human rights violation and brutality being done by the BJP backed goons on the supporters and leaders of the opposition,” Ghosh said.
He also said that accused the BJP-led government of instigating the violence across the state.
“The Tripura police had intentionally arrested 14 of our party supporters citing COVID-19 restrictions,” Ghosh added.
Speaking further, he said that the NHRC team visits West Bengal over pity issues, and when several hundred people are being attacked, the NHRC should visit the state and see the situation.
Earlier on Sunday, the AITC national secretary Abhishek Banerjee visited the state along with MP Dola Sen, West Bengal minister Bratya Basu and Kunal Ghosh.
The leaders rushed to Khowai police station, where the party supporters were kept after arrest. Later, the police produced the accused person before the Khowai District Court, which granted bail to all the accused persons.
West Bengal MLA Samir Ghosh said that an undeclared emergency is prevailing in the state. He also claimed that BJP supporters and leaders, including MLAs are in touch with them, and many of them have been demanding the resignation of the chief minister due to the undemocratic situation.
Kunal Ghosh claimed that the axed cabinet minister and BJP MLA Sudip Roy Barman has also claimed the resignation of Chief Minister Deb.
