We express our condolences.”

We want peaceful election to be held in Tripura, there will be fight for poll. I want to ask Dr. Manik Saha that every day we see in the papers that there are clashes going on between different parties. Is really Tripura Police taking any action? Why are they not being arrested because they are BJP workers? We want a peaceful poll”.
