AGARTALA, June 18 - The CPI (M) on Sunday alleged the Indigenous People�s Front of Tripura (IPFT) has been trying to create trouble at the behest of the Prime Minister�s Office (PMO).
�Calling railway and national highway blockade for indefinite period demanding Twipraland is a serious issue and the IPFT has got backing from the PMO itself�, said party secretary Bijan Dhar.
NC Debbarma who was suspended from the party for taking bribe from the BJP in the run up to the Simna-Tamakari by-election, has been dancing in the BJP�s tune to create unrest in the State, he said while addressing a press conference here.
He said even as the BJP state unit president Biplab Deb has opposed backing Twipraland demand of IPFT, there might be BJP�s understanding with NC Debbarma for political gain.
Noting that Tripura�s identity will be jeopardised if Twipraland demand is achieved, Dhar sharply criticized Deb for turning gun at the CPI (M) led Left Front government.
�Biplab Deb doesn�t know the State�s political history- separate statehood demand was raised two years after CPI (M) coming to power (1978). Now, the IPFT, a mask of outlawed NLFT has been demanding Twipraland�, he pointed out.
