In the first part of this order so as to make suitable arrangements to ensure the maintenance of law and order so as to take forward the unfettered right of political participation during the ensuing municipal elections.” The top court sought an affidavit from the Tripura government detailing the steps being taken in compliance with the existing order and to ensure that the election process is free and fair during the upcoming municipal elections in Tripura.
“The Director General of Police and the Home Secretary shall file a joint report of compliance on the affidavit in compliance with the above directions,” the court said.

The petition referred to the alleged violence against party members and sought directions to protect them for the municipal elections to be held on November 25.
