TRIPURA CONGRESS ORGANIZES MASSIVE 'RAJ BHAWAN ABHIYAAN'

The Tripura Congress today organized a successful and well-attended 'Raj Bhawan Abhiyaan' through a rally near Circuit House , preceded by a big procession. As announced earlier by the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) , hundreds of Congress workers and supporters from different parts of the state, specially Sonamura subdivision converged on the front side of Congress Bhawan . After the workers had arrived a long procession comprising hundreds of party workers led by PCC president Birajit Sinha and Congress’s all India farmers organization Nanabhau Patole meandered its way through streets of Agartala to the space in front of the statue of Mahatma Gandhi near Circuit House and the meeting started .
 
Addressing the gathering Nanabhau Patole and Birajit Sinha castigated the ruling BJP in state and centre and blamed all the ills facing the country on the party. The PCC here had prepared a charter of demands including waiving of all bank loans drawn by farmers and this was proclaimed in the meeting amidst loud applause . Both Patole and Birajit asserted that Congress would come to power through the upcoming loksabha elections and then all kinds of loans drawn by farmers would be waived off . 

After the meeting a delegation of five Congress  leaders headed by Patole and Birajit met in deputation with the governor Kaptan Singh Solanki and handed over a memorandum containing the pro-farmer demands . They urged the governor to exercise his constitutional authority to make the  state government accept the demands and send a copy of it to the union government. What the governor told them is not known but the Congress leaders including Birajit and Patole seemed happy over the deputation.
