Pradyot’s Outfit To Contest ADC Election 2021

Tripura scion and former state Congress chief Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma on Friday said that his outfit – the Tripura Indigenous People’s Regional Alliance (TIPRA) – would contest the tribal council polls this year. Debbarma said he is in touch with all regional tribal outfits in the state, seeking an alliance in the interest of fighting the polls together, and will wait another week before taking a call on the same. The outfit would soon launch itself as a new party and put forward its demand for a ‘Greater Tipraland’, he said, adding that the demand would not only be confined to the TTADC areas but also extend to ‘Tiprasa’ of Tripuris spread across other states such as Assam and Mizoram. On January 12, the state government filed an affidavit before the Tripura High Court, saying that it would conduct the ADC polls by May 17 this year.
