Tripura's  Congress leaders on Sunday, announced a 12-hour statewide bandh on September 21, protesting against the extreme anarchy in the state during the two-and-a-half years of the BJP rule.

Senior leaders, from the party such as All India Congress Committee ( AICC) Secretary Bhupen Bora, Pijush Subal Biswas, Kanti Bhowmik, Gopal Roy and Birajit Sinha decided to call for the bandh in the state, on the said date.
