BJP�s tribal wing wants to go alone in Tripura council elections

By Correspondent

AGARTALA, Feb 9 - Janajati Morcha, the BJP�s tribal wing, has decided to urge the party leadership to contest the upcoming Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) polls alone.

The leaders of the Morcha came to this conclusion at a meeting held at the party headquarters here last night. Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Varma presided over the brainstorming session.

The Morcha wanted the party to adopt the strategy it had adopted in the last Lok Sabha polls of contesting the elections on its own strength.

This development is politically significant in the backdrop of Tripura Rajya Upajati Gana Mukti Parishad, the CPI(M)�s tribal wing, holding a massive rally here on Saturday.

The TTAADC elections will be held before May 7 this year.

�We are of the opinion that the party should contest the ADC elections alone without forging any alliance with the Indigenous People�s Front of Tripura (IPFT) as the party did in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections,� said MLA Rampada Jamatia, a senior leader of Janajati Morcha.

Jamatia, who was present in the meeting, said, �It will be good for the indigenous people if the BJP wins the ADC polls without taking support from its ally IPFT. Many parties and individuals ruled the ADC but failed to bring any change in the lives of the indigenous people. Our stand on the ADC elections of going alone will be communicated to the party.�

It was also decided that leaders of Janajati Morcha would launch a massive campaign on the success of the Central and the State governments in tribal welfare. �After 23 years the Bru refugee problem has been solved by the BJP government and Rs 600 crore has been sanctioned for their rehabilitation. It must be disseminated to the people of the tribal areas. Besides, the people also need to be made aware about the State Cabinet�s decision to empower the tribal council and we will do it before the ADC elections,� he added.

The IPFT is also likely to field candidates on all 28 seats of the TTAADC.

The 30-member (28 elected and two nominated by the State government) TTAADC is currently ruled by the opposition Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M).
