AGARTALA, Jan 18 � With elections to Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) in mind, Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president Birajit Sinha held a crucial meeting yesterday to prepare party�s strategy for the elections.

Though senior leaders like CLP leader Sudip Roy Barman, PCC working president Asish Kumar Saha and former opposition leader Ratan Lal Nath skipped the meeting, the party leader had a detailed discussion on the preparedness for the tribal council elections.

TPCC has decided to declare party manifesto for the coming elections shortly to reach out to the people, which is a new thinking in the party�s old culture, said a senior party leader who attended the meeting held Saturday.

Even as manifesto preparation is yet to kick start the party would continue to stick for State Council status for the TTAADC instead of �unrealistic� Twipra land demand.

�Since Congress is a nationalist party, it can�t support slogan like Twipra land for political mileage. Yes, we want more power for the Tribal Council as the present format of TTAADC has failed to fulfill the aspirations of common people�, he said.

A little-known political outfit � Indigenous People�s Front of Tripura (IPFT) has already demanded Twipra land (separate State) since tribal council has become irrelevant in the present day�s socio-political scenario.

On the issue pertaining to candidates for the tribal council elections was also held in the meeting chaired by the TPCC president. �It was decided that the party will give due importance on the inputs passed by booth and block level when it comes to candidates selection for the tribal council elections�, he said.

Besides, the party will also engage young volunteers to counter the propaganda against the party. The young volunteer will be sent to the grass root level for reach out the common people.

MLA Gopal Roy, PCC working president Pradyot Kishore Debbarman, Debabrata Koloi, Gouri Shankar Reang and Shabda Kumar Jamatia remained present in the first TPCC meeting after the change in guard.
