Tipraland State Party (TSP) has decided to break ties with the Tipra Motha alliance in Tripura citing concerns over its uncertain future.
Convenor Sridam Debbarma informed about this decision during a press conference held in the evening on Monday.
He said the TSP had merged with Tipra Motha under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in 2021 and jointly contested the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) elections, winning the majority of seats.
However, Debbarma stressed that the Tipra Motha faction lacks an executive committee and operates without any clear ideology or principles.
“A party must have a functioning executive body to operate effectively. They are devoid of one,” he said.
He further said that despite being part of the alliance, TSP leaders were not informed about the activities of Tipra Motha.
“We have resolved to separate from Tipra Motha. The outlook for Tipra Motha appears uncertain, which has led us to choose the path of reviving the TSP once again,” he said.
