Mob attack on Abhishek Banerjee`s convoy in Agartala. 

The Trinamool Congress National General Secretary also known as Nephew of CM Mamata Banerjee, Mr. Abhishek Banerjee`s convoy was today attacked in Agartala by alleged BJP workers while he was in the city to launch Mission Tripura, aimed at gaining power in the northeastern state.

Posting a video of the attack, Mr. Banerjee tweeted: "Democracy in Tripura under @BJP4India rule! Well done @BjpBiplab for taking the state to new heights."

He was on his way to the Tripureshwari temple from the Agartala airport when the attack shown in the video took place.

Mr Banerjee`s convoy was first stopped at Charilam in West Tripura district as protesting BJP workers raised slogans, trying to block the road, police sources told PTI. A group of BJP workers also tried to stop him at Kamalasagar in Sipahijala district, raising slogans against him, they said.

Speaking at a press conference later, the leader, nephew of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, said the BJP can`t stop the Trinamool. "We will free the people of Tripura," he said, taking a dig at the Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb, "If Biplab babu can stop us, let him try."
