IPFT to raise demand for Tipraland in rally today

By Correspondent

AGARTALA, Aug 22 - Indigenous People�s Front of Tripura (IPFT) spokesman Mangal Debbarma today said the party and its frontal wings would observe the 11th Tipraland Demand Diwas at the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) headquarters at Khumulwng in West Tripura district on August 23 to garner support for their cause. �All the 33 divisional committees, local committees and primary committees have been asked to bring people to a rally to raise the Tipraland demand,� he told reporters at the Press Club here.

Leaders from the National Federation for New Status (NFNS) are also scheduled to join the rally. Debbarma said the rally for Tipraland is important keeping in mind the NDA Government�s decision to create two Union Territories � Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh � by abrogating Article 370.

�The voice for Tipraland, Bodoland, Gorkhaland, Dimaraji, Kamtapur and Vidharbha has become louder in the aftermath of abrogation of Article 370 and 35-A. We hope the Tipraland demand will gain pace through a peaceful movement in the coming days,� he said.

Debbarma, who is also the party�s assistant general secretary, said the IPFT has requested the Central Government to publish a detailed report of the modality committee, aimed at boosting socio-economic and linguistic development of the indigenous people.

Without naming any political party, Debbarma alleged a section of people have been trying to mislead the people about the observance of the Tipraland Demand Diwas in the hills. It appeared that he was targeting Pradesh Congress Committee president Pradyot Kishore Debbarman and the INPT leaders, who have also been trying to consolidate the tribal vote bank.

Meanwhile, as the election to the TTAADC is nearing, the IPFT, an ally of the BJP-led coalition Government in the State, has been gearing up to mobilise support in the tribal areas.

�In the forthcoming TTAADC elections, the IPFT will bank on its organisational strength to win the polls. As of now, we intend to go it alone, but the party is ready to open talks for any electoral understanding,� said Debbarma.
