“I’m an MP and also have an identity card. He said people here want Trinamul supremo Mamata Banerjee.  Be it Agartala, Mumbai, Chennai, Amritsar, Lucknow, Varanasi and she will take you on the head on.” He said similarly this Modi-Shah is not allowing the Oppositions to discuss on Pegasus Snoopgate.” We asked simple questions who gave order and who financed for it. We are also demanding Supreme Court probe into the matter,” Mr O’ Brien said.

He said during election, all BJP Central leaders, chief ministers of BJP -run states came to West Bengal along with CBI, ED and IT and put national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee’s phone under Pegasus Snoopgate but had a major defeat.

He also lashed out at the Tripura CM for keeping the I-PAC boys under house arrest for 48 hours in a hotel. He alleged that under the instruction of Modi-Shah, Tripura chief minister made this unlawful house arrest. “This is nothing new but old Gujarat model that they have already practiced in 2002.

He said, “Our party chairperson Mamata Banerjee and national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee had asked me and MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar  to visit Tripura, hold organisational meeting and meet the common people to feel the pulse.”

Mr O’ Brien also declared that party’s national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee will be coming to Tripura in afternoon flight and several meetings will be held but by observing Covid norms.”

Tripura Trinamul Congress organisational meeting today started with a glitch as 

100 policemen and armed police personnel threatened the hotel owner of fire consequences where the organisational meeting is to take place.

After, Mr Derek O’Brien came to the hotel, the hotel owner told him the authorities wanted to see the police approval for the gathering otherwise they were not in a position to allow Trinamul Congress to hold organisational meet,” he said.

Members and leaders of Tripura Trinamul Congress from eight districts came to the hotel to attend the meeting, said Mr Ashishlal Singh, Tripura state district president. “Finally, the police allowed us to hold the meeting with 50 members in the banquet hall of the hotel,” he said.

The state education minister Bratya Basu said, “I along with state PWD minister Moloy Ghatak and INTTUC state president Ritabrata Banerjee moved in different parts of the state andl spoke to the common people to feel the pulse.”

He said people of Tripura I’d frustrated under three and half years of BJP rule. They want a change. They have witnessed Left and Congress rule then BJP rule but now after Mamata Banerjee’s landslide victory in West Bengal they want Trinamul Congress in Tripura. He said like Bengal, in Tripura too there will be “khela hobe”, the ground has been set, goal post erected, game will begin soon.

The state PWD Moloy Ghatak said, “We have seen states like Punjab, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan where BJP had governments, people of those states voted against the BJP.” He said even in Karnataka and Madhyab Pradesh, people voted against the BJP.

Hinting at the change of chief minister in Karnataka and Uttarakhand, Mr O’ Brien said, “We are hearing of some changes in Tripura too.”
