“The hotel which hosted the TMC leaders is also under BJP’s scanner. Officials from GST visited the hotel and said that the hotel skipped GST payment and Agartala Municipal Corporation charged the hotel for illegal construction. The BJP government is also playing with the electricity. The law and order in Tripura is out of order,” said Mamata.

Meanwhile, TMC youth wing president Sayoni Ghosh complained that the restaurant manager refused to serve her food as she was allegedly discussing politics in the restaurant.

“The BJP is ruling Tripura like Hitler and the TMC is being heckled every now and then. The government is also putting off the electricity so that we (TMC) are harassed,” said Sayoni.

TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh said that TMC leader Ritabrata Bandhopadhyay is not getting admission in any hotels in Tripura.
