The Apex Court on Tuesday will hear a contempt plea of the Trinamool Congress (TMC), which claimed that the law and order situation in Tripura is “worsening” day by day, ahead of impending civic body elections in the state.
The Supreme Court had agreed to hear the plea on Monday. The Court had earlier asked Tripura Police authorities to ensure that no political party is precluding from exercising their rights in accordance with law.
TMC had earlier alleged that several people sustained injuries following an attack on the residence of Trinamool Congress Tripura unit’s Steering Committee chief Subal Bhowmik in Bhagaban Thakur Chowmuni area of Agartala on Sunday.
Moreover, on 22nd of November, Union Minister Pratima Bhoumik alleged that more than a thousand people from West Bengal were brought to Tripura, by TMC, to create unrest in the state. She also accused poll strategist Prashant Kishore-led IPAC of disseminating fake and fabricated information and videos that are against the interest of the people of the state.
