Agartala, June 30 (IANS) With an aim to oust the Left Front government in Tripura, the Trinamool Congress will organise “Booth chalo” (march to booth) campaign, party Vice President Mukul Roy said here on Thursday.
“TMC would launch ‘Booth chalo’ campaign to oust the Left Front government in Tripura in 2018 assembly polls,” Roy told a gathering after inaugurating the TMC party headquarters in Agartala.
“The Trinamool led by Mamata Banerjee would launch a massive campaign against the Left Front government in Tripura on August 9, the day when ‘Quit India’ movement was launched by Mahatma Gandhi,” Roy said, adding that the party would hold a “massive rally” that day.
“Entire Trinamool leadership in West Bengal would stand behind the Tripura party unit and people to oust CPI-M from power. A government of ‘Maa Mati Manush’ (mother, earth and people) would be established in Tripura in 2018 assembly polls,” Roy said.
“People of Tripura would organise a movement against the misrule of the Left Front government here,” said Roy, who was accompanied by party MP Prasun Banerjee and other leaders.
Citing the voting percentages in different states, Roy claimed that the CPI-M would lose its national party status soon.
The Congress-Left alliance in Bengal was a joke, Roy added.
State Trinamool leader Sudip Roy Barman said within one and a half years the entire political scenario in Tripura would change.
“Within five years from now, the name of CPI-M would be erased from Tripura and other parts of the country. TMC is now the main opposition political force in Tripura,” he said.
“The party would fight tooth and nail to dislodge the Left Front government and establish a TMC-led government here in 2018 assembly polls,” Roy Barman added.
Trinamool’s Tripura unit Chairman Ratan Chakraborty, former chairman Arun Chandra Bhowmik and Biswabandhu Sen, among others, addressed the gathering.
