All India Trinamool Congress Chairperson Mamata Banerjee and AITC National General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee walked for more than 5 kms from Agartala’s Rabindra Bhawan along with their entourage amidst loud applauses and cheers on Tuesday.
Interacting with people who came to catch a glimpse of their beloved ‘Didi’ from far-flung areas of the state, the party chairperson maintained her pace throughout the march with a smile on her face. The padayatra ended with her public address to a large gathering of people who had been there since morning to listen to the AITC Chairperson and party National General Secretary.
While addressing the crowd, the AITC Chairperson slammed BJP, Congress, and CPI(M) ahead of the Tripura Assembly elections. “CPI(M) is the B-team of Congress…Double-engine has drowned Delhi.
How can they save Tripura? These people are only visible during elections. You won’t find them after the polls. There is an alliance of CPI(M)-Congress here. In Bengal, BJP-CPI(M)-Congress came together to fight us. Don’t these people feel ashamed of their hypocrisy and for doing two kinds of politics in different states? CPI(M) was in power for years. What did they do for the people?”
Highlighting the painful condition of the teachers in Tripura, she said, “Over 10,000 teachers lost their jobs here. BJP had promised to give their jobs back. Five years have passed but they were not able to fulfil their promise.”United Nations has also recognised our Kanyashree scheme and we received the first prize.
