Trinamool Congress (TMC) general secretary Abhishek Banerjee has arrived in Tripura on Friday afternoon. 

Banerjee landed at the Agartala airport and was received by top state TMC leaders and a massive crowd of party supporters. 

TMC general secretary Abhishek Banerjee will address a massive public rally in front of Rabindra Shatabarshiki Bhawan in Agartala. 

Earlier, Abhishek Banerjee’s rally was denied permission twice last month on the grounds of ensuring that Covid-19 norms are not violated.

But, the Tripura High Court on Saturday gave its nod to Abhishek Banerjee’s event, after the TMC challenged the order issued by Sadar Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) asking for a change of venue of TMC’s proposed meeting. 

Sitting MLA from Surma constituency in Tripura and former BJP leader Ashish Das will formally join the TMC on Sunday in the presence of Abhishek Banerjee on Sunday.
