AGARTALA, Aug 15 - Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar today alerted people of the state about the activities of insurgent groups, who joined the peace talks and continued "subversive activities" in the state at the same time.
"Our government would leave no stone unturned in maintaining peace and tranquillity, but the people of the state would have to remain alert about the activities of the insurgent groups. One prominent outfit had joined in tri-partite talks with the Centre and state at the initiative of the central government, but trying to continue subversive activities by kidnapping people," the Chief Minister said unfurling the tri-colour at the Assam Rifles ground here.
"I also alerted the security forces about their activities," he said, adding the Armed Forces Special power Act (AFSPA) is anti-democratic and that was the reason behind withdrawing the Act by the state government.
Criticising the Centre, Sarkar said it adopted an anti-farmer policy and the recent land acquisition bill was the best example of it, he said and added, Foreign Direct Investment in defence sector is not acceptable.
Sarkar said his government had adopted pro-farmer, pro-people and pro-poor policy to give relief to the people against the national policy which was in favour of the corporate sectors. - PTI
