“People do not have to surrender before the evil forces. Tripura Human Rights Organization is with the people. We will ask the Chief Minister and Chief Secretary of the state to take strict action on in this very alarming situation. And if those who are committing these incidents are not from the ruling party, then why is the Chief Minister not taking measures to send them to jail”, Roy Barman asked.
