Tripura CPI (M) has announced its oppose to the bandh called by Tipra Motha scheduled on September 30.
Narayan Kar, a member of the party’s central committee, said in a press conference at Melarmath Dashrath Deb Smriti Bhavan on Sunday that this bandh is to prevent the party from breaking up. When the tribal people who are plagued with various problems leave the fascination of Greater Tipraland and join the struggle to save their livelihood, in the main time the bandh is called to divert people’s attention. Attempts are being made to show that the movement for Greater Tipraland is underway.
Narayan Kar said that Pradyot Kishore Debbarman called for a 12-hour bandh on September 30 in the Autonomous District Council area in a press conference. The CPI(M) feels that this bandh is unnecessary.
Because , constructive discussions are going on with the central government. Union Home Minister Amit Shah, in particular, is very ‘positive’ about solving the problems of the tribal people. Then why the strike? What creates stress? This is not the real story, he said.
Actually , aspirations Pradyot created among the tribal people, especially among the students, youth, middle class, and the entire tribal society towards Greater Tipraland . Greater Tipraland would be for the Tiprasas, by saying this, he misled people and took them with him, said Kar.
Narayan Kar said Tipra Motha has secured absolute majority in the TTAADC. After the 2023 assembly elections, it gained the status of the main opposition party with 13 seats. What is happening now in the ADC area? There is no work anywhere. Schools, colleges, health centers, roads, communication systems have all collapsed. Tipra Motha in ADC. BJP-IPFT Coalition government in the state. BJP government in Delhi. If everyone is sympathetic why is there a shortage of work in the ADC area? Why scarcity of water? Why will the road be in trouble? In fact, those who were excited about such demand, jumped into Tipra Matha, now frustrated.
Kar also said, people in the tribal areas are joining the struggle movement with the main issues of education, health, work, ethnic development, and the desire to live like other common citizens. To divert their attention, a bandh has been called on September 30.
