Agartala, March 23: Tipra Motha supremo Pradyot Debbarma on Thursday said he is hopeful for the solution to the “Greater Tipraland” demand of the Tipraha Indigenous Progressive Regional Alliance (TIPRA) party in Tripura.

An interlocutor for the talks regarding a constitutional solution for the “indigenous people of Tripura” is likely to be announced this month, which was informed to Pradyot Debbarma by Home Minister Amit Shah over a telephonic call.

“Woke up to an early morning call from the hon home minister @AmitShah to enquire about my health . He also categorically assured me that by the 27th of this month an interlocutor will be announced for our talks regarding the constitutional solution for our indigenous people of Tripura. I hope the home minister will understand the sentiments of the tiprasa and honour the commitment he has given to me,” Debbarma tweeted.

According to reports, AK Mishra, former special director of the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and the interlocutor for the Naga peace talks, is most likely to be appointed as the interlocutor for the Centre to discuss and negotiate the demands of the TIPRA party.
