22 members of Prashant Kishor’s I-PAC team detained by police
22 member team of Indian Political Action Committee (I-PAC) have been detained Tripura’s Hotel Woodland Park at Agartala.
The TMC, which is making its base strong in Tripura, had recently appointed Ashish Lal Singh as the party president in the state. “This is shameful. The IPAC team came and from night they are undergoing verification and they are almost in house arrest. Is the BJP scared of is this democracy?” asked Singh.
With an aim to make Trinamool Congress’ base strong in Tripura, 22 IPAC employees were in Agartala to assess the political situation and potential support base for the Trinamool Congress. Election in the BJP-ruled state is due in 2023.

Slamming the BJP for this incident, TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee tweeted, “The fear in @BJP4Tripura before even @AITCofficial stepped into the land, is more than evident! They are so rattled by our victory in #Bengal that they’ve now kept 23 IPAC employees under house arrest. Democracy in this nation dies a thousand deaths under BJP’s misrule!”
