SC To Hear TMC’s Contempt Plea Against Tripura Govt On Tuesday

The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear on November 23 the Trinamool Congress Party’s plea seeking contempt action against the Tripura government and others for failing to curtail violent incidents against opposition parties in the run up to the upcoming local body polls.

A bench of Justices D Y Chandrachud and A S Bopanna said it will hear the plea on Tuesday after advocate Amar Dave, appearing for TMC, said that despite court’s November 11 order the situation in the state is worsening.


“Yesterday, there was an incident. The situation in the state is very volatile and it has gone from bad to worse. The situation is worsening day by day,” he said.

“The plea for contempt action has been filed as there are repeated incidents of violence and false cases are being lodged against their members,” he added.

When the bench asked whether the petition has been filed, Dave said it is in the process being filed and once it is numbered, he will provide it to the court.

“Ok, we will hear it on Tuesday. Once the petition is numbered, you provide the details to the court master,” the bench said.
