The Trinamool Congress Party (TMC) has postponed all its scheduled programmes, including a mega rally in Tripura, after denied permission from High Court (HC).
The decision to postpone the party events has been undertaken after the Tripura High Court rejected the TMC’s plea to hold an event in the state.
Through a series of tweets, TMC accused it’s opposition party, the BJP-led government in Tripura of repeatedly denying permission to hold events in the state.
In line with the HC's decision not to interfere in policy decisions, we are postponing our scheduled events in Tripura.
We will seek further clarity from the court on the limits to such arbitrary use of executive power. (2/2)
