AGARTALA / NEW DELHI, May 28 (TIWN): For the first time in Tripura history, AICC will hold a press conference focusing on Tripura at Delhi HQ. According to the report, a press conference will be organized at Delhi HQ about Tripura post poll violence at 4 pm today. The press conference will be chaired by Randeep Surjewala, Pawan Khera, Tripura Congress President Pradyot Manikya, Congress senior leader Pijush Biswas. Congress also has called the people, Congress supporters, leaders to donate an amount according to their capacity to the Congress so that the party can help the affected victims. Addressing media, Congress State President Pradyot Manikya who personally donated Rs. 10 lakhs said, aftermath of the Elections in Tripura, we have seen unprecedented violence, a lot of workers, people in general are being attacked, beaten up, the properties is being destroyed, physically attacked and lot of them are in hospitals, their medical bills are escalating and an atmosphere of violence has been created across Tripura”.Three persons have been killed in the post poll violence, over 200 hospitalized, property burning crossed 150 in numbers. The opposition parties demanded compensation to the victims and immediate control in the law and order, but no development in the law and order issue came.

 The Govt has shown no sympathy over the destruction and didn’t agree with the compensation demand.

Reacting over the ongoing violence, Congress leader Subal Bhowmik said, “Such level of anarchy was never seen in Tripura. The State is now handedover to a child. Who is whose guardian, nothing can be understood. Day night I am just busy in hospital visits”.

Addressing media Subal Bhowmik said, “This election is a shame for our country, where opposition had no place to raise voice. The way BJP miscreants are attacking people house to house, murdering this is nightmare and was never seen in Tripura. Now artists are not even spared. It’s quite surprising that a section of people are supporting such brutalities done by BJP. People could not cast votes and they are claiming they won the election. Now BJP-BJP fights have increased highest. Suryamaninagar MLA’s brother was beaten and then he also had beaten few more BJP supporters. In Bamutia also same things are happening. They are searching the criminals inside party but this is not just searching but infighting with area occupying issues”.
