AGARTALA, Dec 1 - The Indigenous People�s Front of Tripura (IPFT) has called a dawn-to-dusk bandh in the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) areas on December 5 in support of its three-point charter of demands.
The demands include formation of Twipraland, withdrawal of the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill and holding by-election to vacant seats of village committees. The decision to call the 12-hour bandh was taken at high-level meeting of the party held here recently.
An IPFT team is scheduled to visit New Delhi to stage a demonstration to press its core demands. �A party delegation headed by IPFT president NC Debbarma will leave the State for Delhi in the first week of next month. Apart from the demonstration, the party delegation is likely to meet the Prime Minister and Union Home Minister to brief them on the problems of indigenous tribes in Tripura,� said a senior party functionary here today.
The party�s general body conference is also scheduled to take place next month. The party will elect a new committee for the next three years.
There are reports that many leaders want NC Debbarma and Mever Kumar Jamatia should quit party positions as they have become ministers.
