Former Silchar MLA Sushmita Dev will be visiting Tripura on September 1, 2021, 15 days after joining Trinamool Congress. The former All India Mahila Congress president is expected to stay here for another 15 days.
West Bengal’s Education minister Bratya Basu will be accompanying Dev.
It may be mentioned here that after coming to power for the third time in West Bengal, TMC is now eying to build a fort in Tripura and Dev’s joining the party is expected to give it a boost. Tripura goes to poll in 2023.
