Congress President Birjit Sinha alleged that since two months after the Election result was declared and BJP came in power, democracy has been snatched and opposition supporters are facing hard times. Thus as a reaction over the bulldozing of various party offices within a very short time of 7 days, the Congress will organize an Akrosh-rally on tomorrow as a part of protest. Congress will also take legal action against BJP led Tripura Govt for demolishing various party offices of them. On the other side, BJP Govt led bulldozing of party offices on govt lands are going on in full wave across Tripura. Today at Kamalpur many party offices were bulldozed”.

When, various BJP offices are also under govt notice of bulldozing, Congress leader Gopal Roy said, “Our party offices are not new. After 30 years of completion how a party office can be demolished without compensation and within 7 days ? Not only this, the party office today they bulldozed it was 40 years old”. 

Birjit Sinha told TIWN, Congress will go in protest against the drive and will also decide whether any legal action against the govt can be taken or not. 

On Friday, Tripura Congress activists, leaders led by Congress President Birjit Sinha and Gopal Roy had blocked National Highway at the same spot in Agartala Kamarpukur area in Math Chowmuhani protesting against the bulldozing drive of the BJP led state govt against Congress party offices.

On May 7 and May 8 various party offices were bulldozed at Motor Stand and at GB area whereas more fresh notices were served and maximum of them were pasted on the door of the Congress Bhawans.

At Kamarpukur also the Govt has pasted a notice for eviction. Reacting over the notices, Congress have blocked the National Highway at the Math Chowmuhani calling the Chief Minister Biplab Deb a 'Barbaric Ruler'.

Congress President Birjit Sinha said, "All party offices on hills have been served with notices of bulldozing. This Kamarpukur located party office has also been noticed to be evicted. But each office including Municipality office also is built over Govt land here. Why only the Congress Bhawan has been targeted ? No meeting was also called for any discussion with us. Is this democracy ?"

Addressing media, Congress leader Gopal Roy said, "Hundreds of houses,shops are built over the govt lands, which are not being evicted. It clearly indicates that intentionally the Congress Bhawans have been targeted".
