However, ABVP refused to accept the allegations.

TMC spokesperson and party’s general secretary Kunal Ghosh said that out of ‘fear’ the BJP is beating up TMC cadres.

On reaching Tripura Rajya Sabha TMC MP Shantanu Sen said that they were not being allowed to enter Tripura and also that the TMC will beat the BJP democratically in Tripura.

“Our one of the young leaders started internal bleeding and we have to take her to Kolkata for treatment. Such acts clearly state that BJP is afraid of TMC,” said Shantanu.

Incidentally, the TMC had decided to celebrate TMCP foundation day even in Tripura and a giant screen was supposed to be set up to telecast the speech of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

Meanwhile, BJP Tripura MLA Sudip Roy Burman along with three other BJP MLAs met TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee in Kolkata.

According to TMC sources, the TMC with eight agendas will hold a protest march in Tripura on Saturday.

However, West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh said that the TMC’s dream of ruling Tripura will remain a dream.

“Tripura people know how violent TMC is and for which they started protesting from the beginning when TMC started going to Tripura. BJP will reform the government in Tripura,” said Dilip.
