Tripura: TMC set to contest Municipal elections

News Desk: The TMC is all set to contest the Municipal elections in Tripura.

According to reports, TMC leader Abhishek Banerjee has given charge to three TMC leaders including Sushmita Deb, Subal Bhowmick and Ashish Lal Singha to build the base of the party in the eight districts of the state.

“A 10-day campaign is scheduled from October 21. Sushmita Deb has been charge of West Tripura and Sipahijala district, Subhal Bhowmick will look after South Tripura and Gomti and Ashish Lal Singha will look after Dholai, Khoai, Unkoti along with North Tripura” a TMC source said.

TMC chief and Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee is likely to visit BJP-ruled Tripura in December and before that Trinamool Congress national secretary Abhishek Banerjee will visit the state in November.

However, Tripura BJP spokesperson Nabendu Bhattacharjee said that no matter what the TMC can never be able to grow in Tripura.

“The bankrupt condition of the TMC is clear that they are trying to contest polls with non residents of Tripura. Ashish’s ancestors were here once upon a time and then they have settled in West Bengal. If Abhishek thinks that he will become a voter of Tripura to contest the poll, he can give a try. Everyone knows what violence is happening in West Bengal under TMC rule” claimed Nabendu.
