A feisty Trinamool Congress youth wing president, Saayoni Ghosh, who was arrested in Agartala on “attempt to murder” cost on November 21 and later launched, echoed Mamata Banerjee’s “Khela Hobe” in Tripura.
Recalling her evening of arrest, Ghosh advised News18 in an unique interview that it was “horrible” and mentioned she is adamant to go to the state once more, and marketing campaign in opposition to the BJP.
Voting in additional than 200 seats within the Agartala Municipal Company (AMC) and different municipal our bodies in Tripura will likely be a litmus take a look at for TMC, which has been attempting to foray into nationwide politics by the northeast route.
How is the ‘Khela Hobe’ programme occurring in Tripura? What is going to occur on the election day?
See, ‘Khela Hobe’ is a normal glad time period that we use in Bengali, which implies “playing it out”. It was utilized by Didi (Mamata Banerjee) in election and it grew to become a political anthem, it went viral. Now, we greet one another with the ‘Khela Hobe’ time period and at instances, finish our dialog with this. It’s got nothing to instigate. You may imply something with ‘Khela Hobe’ however it can’t be a provocation. It has been instrumental in our victory that TMC received with an enormous mandate.
Have you ever ever thought that ‘Khela Hobe’ will slap a case on you?
No, we by no means thought. It’s glad time period, and we received a constructive response through the election time. This time, after I say, ‘Khela Hobe’ no matter occurs, that must be watched out.
You’ve been to Tripura. What has occurred after the SC order? Will individuals come out to vote?
They need to however let me let you know it’s a grave state of affairs there and a gross violation of legislation and order. This has been occurring for a very long time. Once I went there for the primary time, that they had minimize electrical energy, they used to say don’t focus on politics (right here).
What occurred to our employees, that’s an excessive amount of. Our employees had been crushed up in every single place and the police had been solely mere spectators. Persons are helpless there and the police usually are not doing something. What sort of system is that this the place a state police can’t do something?
This time we’re involved as a result of now we have confronted an excessive amount of violence. I thank the Supreme Courtroom and hope individuals will come out to vote. If free and honest elections are carried out, then it will likely be the start of the tip of BJP.
Your tweet began the controversy and that’s the way you got here into politics. What was your expertise? How did it occur?
Am now seasoned. I can say after 9 months. Trolling is one thing that an actor has to face. Neglect me, they don’t even spare Virat Kohli or Aamir Khan. I’m used to it. If you end up in politics it goes soiled, individuals assault you personally. I received a “dhamki” (risk) for my tweet in Bengal however Mamata didi saved me. These threats had been from BJP supporters. Didi protected me, she got here out to avoid wasting me. At the moment, she didn’t know me.
This time, once I was within the BJP-ruled state, I used to be interrogated that evening on the police station. The second assault came about when BJP supporters got here with the intention to kill me. The police needed to shift me, they needed to kill me in entrance of the police. This was actually unhealthy, a life risk. Had they received an opportunity, with no intervention, I might not have been sitting right here as we speak.
Will you ever overlook that evening?
By no means, no person ought to overlook. I’ll bear in mind extra as a result of I need to transfer forward and conquer. This was an expertise which I’ve shot for in a movie however by no means thought it could be actual. I’ll bear in mind it irrespective of wherever I’m going no matter I do.
Will you go to Tripura once more?
After all, I’ll. We’re true troopers of Mamata di. Individuals of Tripura want TMC. We’ve got spoken to all sections of individuals; they’re bored with Biplab Deb (chief minister of Tripura). If there’s a free honest election, individuals will give their mandate, that’s why now we have to proceed our struggle.
How will the TMC carry out in municipal polls?
Something can occur with this CM. They will take a life; we’re involved in regards to the safety of our employees. I might request the BJP authorities to let this election happen correctly as a result of the entire nation is watching them. The entire world is criticising the Tripura authorities.
BJP claims you all are instigating and attempting to create a riot?
Present us one video, their leaders are sitting beside the CM asking employees to run behind the TMC. What is that this? The costs they slapped on me are unhealthy. Successful-and-run case with no sense. They’re stating that I used to be atop my automobile throwing stones, what is that this? I’m not a goon. The administration there’s confused, they don’t have a witness nor any proof. They thought we’ll get scared.
MLA Asansol South (West Bengal) Agnimitra Paul has mentioned you’ve gotten been taught a lesson. How do you react?
Individuals will say. It’s the best way Madam Agnimitra thinks.
Biplab Deb was summoned by the Kolkata Police, is that this tit-for-tat politics?
It’s not tit for tat. But when the police have summoned him, then it’s proper, it’s ‘karma’. No matter you do, comes again to you.
What do you must say to Biplab Deb now?
I’ll solely say ‘Khela Hobe’. I need to say TMC will type the federal government in Tripura in 2023 meeting polls. It’s ‘Gundaraj’ (hooliganism) in Tripura, which is able to finish.
