Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party has suffered a major setback ahead of the elections in Tripura. West Bengal's ruling Trinamool Congress party is all set to chalk out future plans ahead of the 2023 assembly elections.
In fact, Mamata is looking to move ahead in national politics after her victory in Bhabanipur in Bengal and the TMC has made it clear.
A senior TMC official said in Guwahati today that 10 to 15 Tripura BJP MLAs will join the Trinamool Congress. ‘Khela Hobe Tripuraya’ again after Durga Puja.
Several senior BJP MLAs have announced their resignation as the party high command has not taken any action against Tripura’s 'most corrupt' Chief Minister Biplab Deb.
Meanwhile, speaking on the TMC's prospects in Tripura, party MP Saugata Roy said, “There is a possibility of change against Biplab Deb and Mamata Banerjee is a very popular face there."
