On the TMC’s day-long protests led by Abhishek Banerjee, he said, “In a democracy, all have equal chances to express their views. But, while doing so they should also think of others. If due to some Dharna, a large section of people is going to get affected, then the government needs to take steps for the safety of the public”.


Commenting on the reports of internal fighting within the party ahead of the 2023 assembly elections, Sonkar said, “No internal strife exists in the BJP. This is a party of Karyakartas so they have all the right to speak out if they feel anything should be done on an issue. The workers believe that the party will listen to their issues and there is nothing wrong. The party is strong and united in the state.”


Tripura is also scheduled to hold civic polls of 20 urban local bodies on November 25.


“The performance of Biplab Kumar Deb government in Tripura is very good. Apart from that, Narendra Modi is also working for the development of the whole country as well as Tripura.
