TMC leader arrested in Tripura

Wednesday 24th November 2021 06:56 EST

Trinamool Youth Congress president and Tollywood actor Saayoni Ghosh was arrested for attempt-to-murder charges by the Agartala police, a day after she posted a video on her Twitter handle, in which she was heard saying “Khela Hobe” - the party’s rallying cry popularised before the Bengal assembly elections - while passing by a rally being addressed by Tripura chief minister Biplab Deb.
Coinciding with this development, days ahead of the November 25 Agartala Municipal Corporation polls, in which TMC is contesting all 51 wards, there were reports of violence against Trinamool workers, allegedly by BJP men. This prompted a Trinamool delegation to seek an appointment with President and Union home minister Amit Shah to raise the issue of repeated attacks against them in Tripura.
