Must read

Agartala, Nov 29: Tipra Motha Party (TMP) met the Centre’s envoy and advisor to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) A.K. Mishra in Agartala on Tuesday.

The TMP has been demanding ‘Greater Tipraland’ or a separate state for the tribals under Articles 2 and 3 of the Constitution.

After the meeting, TMP supremo Pradyot Bikram Manikya Deb Barman said that his party is sticking to its ‘Greater Tipraland’ demand and “Centre should fulfil our demand and they should come out clearly with their views about our demand”.

Speaking to media persons, Pradyot Bikram Manikya Deb Barman said, “Pakistan tried to impose the Urdu language on the people of East Pakistan and then the language movement started (in 1948) leading to the creation of sovereign Bangladesh. Similarly, tribal language should be respected by all and we need our own script for the language of the indigenous people,”.


TMP leaders led by Deb Barman during the past several months held a series of meetings with Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma; both Shah and Sarma, as well as the Tripura Chief Minister, rejected the ‘Greater Tipraland’ demand, saying no division of Tripura would be done.

After the TMP wrested power in the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) in April, the party intensified their agitation in support of their demand, which has been strongly opposing by the BJP, CPI-M led Left Front, Congress and Trinamool Congress and other parties.
