The Tripura High Court has served a notice to the BJP-led state government over restrictions imposed on holding of rallies and public meetings by political parties in Agartala.
The Court served the notice while hearing a PIL (Public Interest Litigation) that challenges an order passed by West Tripura district magistrate that prohibits political rallies in Agartala till November 4.
The notice was served by a two-judge bench of the Tripura High Court headed by chief justice AA Kureshi.
The petitioners claim that the Tripura government issued prohibitory orders under section 144 of CrPC to stop the Trinamool Congress (TMC) from holding any rallies in Agartala.
Recently, the TMC had postponed all of its political events after the Tripura government imposed prohibitory orders.
Moreover, TMC’s plea for holding a rally in Agartala was also turned down by the Tripura High Court.
