Must read

Agartala, Jan 27: After three days of talks with the ruling BJP at New Delhi, TIPRA Motha, a regional political party of Tripura which has emerged as a key political force in the poll-bound state, has decided to contest alone as the saffron party reportedly failed to give any written assurance for a ‘constitutional solution’ to TIPRA Motha’s demand for a separate State to be called ‘Greater Tipraland’.

Sharing a video on Twitter, Royal Scion and Chairman of TIPRA Motha Padyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma said that there will be no alliance until and unless the government of India doesn’t give assurance in writing to their demand for a ‘Greater Tipraland’, till then there would be no alliance.

“There were many speculations that were circulating in media in last three days that TIPRA to go in the alliance. But I said earlier and today also I am saying that there will be no alliance until and unless the government of India doesn’t give assurance in writing of our constitutional solution, till then there would be no alliance,” said Pradyot.

He claimed that many people will not believe him but since 1977 many tribal regional political parties went to Delhi and came up with some agreements before the election and after the election, they deprived the indigenous people of the state.

“There will (be) no compromise with our demand ‘Greater Tipraland’. We went to Delhi and listened to them carefully. But they didn’t give us anything in writing. I want to tell my Tipra Motha warriors that there will be no alliance in this election. Today we are finalizing our candidates’ list and there will no alliance. I will contest to defeat them who are against our demand. This will be the last fight,” Pradyot said.

He further said, “No alliance – my heart does not agree and so I have made my decision that I cannot accept New Delhi’s offer! Jitega toh jitega harega toh harega but one last fight to karke rahega (we win or we lose, but we’ll fight one last time)! I can’t betray our cause and our people”.

Tripura will go for polls on February 16 and the result will declared on March 2.
