AGARTALA, Sep 8 (TIWN): Once known as "Peaceful State" Tripura lost its all glory due to rapid rise of political attacks, murders, burning of public houses, opposition party offices. Today's Agartala incident has clearly recorded how in broad day light BJP goons attacked on media houses, Party offices generated heavy panic in this state. Violence has crossed its limits and at least 4 journalists were injured severely. All the political parties except BJP have condemned it and police had to impose lathi-charge at certain point, but so far no arrest was reported even after footages show clearly how BJP workers were attacking in media houses and party offices. 2 media houses - Pratibadi Kalam, Daily Desher Katha and two CPI-M party offices including party headquarter were set on fire, stone pelted by BJP kariyakartas with "Jai Sree Ram", "Bharat Mata ki Joy" slogans. The rally was led by BJP leaders Rajib Bhattacharjee, MLA Kalyani Roy, Mohila Morcha President Papia Datta, Yuva Morcha leaders Nabadul Banik, Viki Prasad.
