On Monday, the Supreme Court decided to hear a contempt plea by the Trinamool Congress on Tuesday concerning deterioration of law and order in Tripura ahead of the civil body election in the state.

The apex court had earlier ordered the Tripura Police authorities to ensure that no political party is barred from exercising their rights in accordance with law for political campaigning in a peaceful manner.

The state police have rejected permission to both the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the TMC for their rallies in Agartala on Monday. Elections in the Agartala Municipal Corporation (AMC) and 12 other municipal bodies are scheduled on November 25.

The Mamata Banerjee headed party has also demanded an appointment with the Union home minister Amit Shah during the day about the attacks on party leaders in Tripura. Party MP Derek O Brien informed through Twitter that 16 of his colleagues arrived in Delhi to meet Shah.

He tweeted, “Brutal attacks on TMC. Even members of the media clobbered in Tripura. Unprecedented attacks. Arrest on thumped up charges. 16 Trinamool MPs have reached Delhi. Sir, please do give us an appointment this morning. Patiently waiting.”

Reportedly, the MPs have proposed to hold a dharna in New Delhi against the arrest of Trinamool Youth Congress chief Saayoni Ghosh by Tripura police. She was detained on Sunday for creating a ruckus at a public meeting where chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb was present.

The political party claimed that multiple of its supporters and functionaries survived injuries after an attack on the residence of the party’s Tripura unit leader Subal Bhowmik in the Bhagaban Thakur Chowmuni area of Agartala
