Assam TMC leader Sushmita Dev arrived in Tripura today
Assam Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Sushmita Dev along with senior party leader Bratya Basu arrived at Agartala on Wednesday.
According to reports, Sushmita Dev will be given the charge of Tripura.
The TMC has been trying to make inroads into Tripura since 2008 but has been unsuccessful.
Encouraged by its landslide victory in West Bengal, TMC is now eying BJP-ruled Tripura with Abhishek Banerjee and several ministers and MPs frequently visiting the state since last month to build the organisation.
The party has started preparation for 2023 Tripura assembly polls.
TMC has constituted a state committee and an announcement will be made by party’s national General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee next during his visit to the state.
