Agartala: Trinamool Congress (TMC) has slammed Biplab Kumar Deb’s administration for refusing permission to hold a padayatra (foot march) in Agartala on September 15.  

TMC leader Sushmita Dev asked Tripura Police why another political party got permission to hold rallies on the same day and on the same route.

“Tripura Police must answer which political party has sought permission for holding a rally at the same time and day. The police must specify the time when the letter requesting permission was given to the police,” Dev said.

She also said Tripura Police must maintain law and order, but they have failed to arrest a single person who recently attacked the media office holding BJP party flags.

“The police have denied permission to hold the rally which was supposed to be attended by Abhishek Banerjee,” Dev added. 

The TMC had submitted a letter before the Sadar sub-divisional police officer Ramesh Yadav on September 11, requesting permission to hold a rally and sabha in front of Rabindra Bhavan, Agartala.    

TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh said that the BJP is afraid of their defeat in the next elections, and therefore, they are trying everything possible to stop TMC from holding the padayatra.

“The BJP has also asked their wings to hold a strike in Dharmanagar so that the local trains cannot move to Agartala. The BJP is providing oxygen to CPIM so that TMC remains out of people’s attention,” Ghosh said.

Earlier, the TMC announced that the national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee would lead a padayatra in Agartala on September 15 to protest against the “BJP-IPFT government misrule.”
