TMC may go it alone in Tripura
The option is still open for other parties.
Mamata Banerjee will hold a roadshow in Tripura on February 6
Agartala: The Trinamool Congress (TMC) will not join the alliance of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) and the Congress in the upcoming Tripura assembly elections. A senior party leader gave this information on Sunday. Tripura unit president of Trinamool Congress Piyush Kanti Biswas said that Trinamool chief and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will reach Tripura on February 6 to campaign for party candidates. Biswas said, “The Trinamool Congress will not make any electoral pact with the CPI(M)-Congress alliance in the upcoming Tripura assembly elections as many Congress leaders and workers who suffered under the Communist regime will not vote for their own party.”
He said, “Our assessment is that the CPI(M)-Congress initiative will meet the same fate as it did in the West Bengal assembly elections in 2021, so we will keep distance from it.” Biswas said, “The Trinamool Congress will contest the seats where the party is likely to win and the party’s doors are open to other parties for an electoral pact.” He told that Banerjee will reach Tripura on February 6 on a two-day tour and will do a road show. Biswas said, ‘The party chief will come to the state on February 6 for campaigning and will participate in the road show to be organized the next day.’

Apart from this, many other senior leaders from Kolkata will come to the northeastern states for campaigning. It is noteworthy that elections for the 60-member Tripura Assembly will be held on February 16.
