Trinamool Congress leader Sushmita Dev on Tuesday alleged that there is absolutely no space for democratic and political activity for the Opposition in Tripura.

Dev, who took oath as Rajya Sabha MP on Tuesday, said that a delegation of the TMC will meet President Ram Nath Kovind soon on the violence against the party workers in the State.

She said Tripura police have been dragging their feet on investigating or making any arrests in last Friday’s incident when she and other TMC workers were attacked.

“There is absolutely no space for any democratic and political activity of the Opposition in Tripura. The police may not be able to prevent a violent attack, but even after we provided them the evidence, including videos and photographers, there have been no arrests in any of the incidents of violence against us,” Dev said.

She was sporting a cast on a finger in her right hand following an injury when her car was attacked in Agartala on Friday.
