Demanding re-election in the Tripura West parliamentary constituency, a team of AICC met the Election Commissioner of India (ECI) in New Delhi on Thursday.
The All India Congress Committee (AICC) team was led by Ahmed Patel, included Jairam Ramesh, Abhishek Manu Singhvi, Rajeev Shukla. Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president Pradyot Kishore Debbarma was also present in the team.
The AICC team informed that special observer Vinod Zutshi overruled the initial report for re-polling in 433 polling stations to 168 polling stations.
Meanwhile, the AICC has sought the report of observer Vinod Zutshi so that it can challenge it in the Supreme Court alleging that the observer did not follow the proper polling process and ground report.
Later, speaking to reporters, Debbarma said, “As long as I am the state Congress president, we will not give up the fight for justice. Our case is precise and very different from that of the Communists and will fight it to the very end.”
As the fight goes on in New Delhi, the Congress on the same demand organised a protest rally in Agartala on Thursday.
