The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a contempt plea of the Trinamool Congress on Tuesday. The plea is regarding the deterioration of law and order in Tripura ahead of civil body elections in the northeast state.

However, the state police have denied permission to both the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the TMC for their rallies in Agartala on Monday.
As the Elections to the Agartala Municipal Corporation (AMC) and 12 other municipal bodies are due on November 25.
