The Agartala Municipal Corporation yesterday in a press conference protested against the ongoing demolition drive which is being carried out by the West Tripura Administration. Mayor of Agartala Municipal Corporation, Prafullajit Sinha claimed that the decade old CPI(M) and Congress party offices demolition drive is conducted without the permission of the Municipal Corporation.
” State Government demolished decades old party offices and small time road side vendor’s stalls without any notice. If the matter would have been discussed along with us then we the elected representatives might have given our opinion but the government did not care to do so”, said the Mayor of Agartala Municipal Corporation.
Deputy Mayor of Agartala Municipal Corporation, Samar Chakraborty said, ” Everywhere these issues are discussed with all the stakeholders but here the government was unwilling to do so. All of you must have remembered that when Agartala City Centre was constructed there were many tea stalls, saloons etc which were in government land and we have accommodated everyone of of them inside the City Centre after the completion of its work”.
