I came in 2016, but the situation was not worst, as it is now. They (Left and BJP) played with Tripura’s future. I have come here today, and promise to come here again after 15 days,’ said Banerjee. The TMC leader accused that CPM’s 25 years rule and BJP’s 3-year rule has ruined the state.
Banerjee also accused that his convoy was attacked in Tripura. He shared a video on Twitter and alleged that BJP workers were behind the attack.
