Tripura: Abhishek Banerjee addresses press meet, slams Biplab Deb over violence in the state

News Desk: TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee on Monday slammed the Biplab Deb led BJP government of Tripura over attacks on TMC workers by the saffron party workers.

While addressing a press meet, he said “The kind of incidents that are taking place in Tripura, it has become unsafe for the people to step out even during the daylight. The way this state is being governed, the country has never seen something like this before. A political party which keeps criticising other parties, their own state government is breaking the record of violence”

“Under the leadership of BJP CM Biplab Deb, several goons wearing helmets were seen beating up our workers and supporters. When the injured were taken to hospital, the goons had reached there as well. Even two media persons were attacked. People are not only unsafe on the streets, but unsafe in police stations as well. People are being attacked even inside police stations. Amid all this, police were just mute spectators. It is the job of the police to work for every human, not just politicians” the TMC MP added.

“The BJP thinks that the state of Tripura is their ancestral property. Do not destroy the state for your own benefits. I request the administration to make sure that such violence does not take place. The effort that BJP government is using to attack the workers, they could have used for the development of the state. Once TMC comes to power, they’ll make sure action is taken against the perpetrators. Do not be hesitant on the voting day, please vote for TMC” he added.
