BJP’s ally IPFT to hold indefinite anti-CAA protests in Tripura from Jan 6

The Indigenous Peoples Front of Tripura (IPFT), an alliance partner of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), on Wednesday announced its plan for an indefinite sit-in demonstration at Khumulwng, headquarters of Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) from January 6 to protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act that continues to roil many other parts of the country.

The party will launch the protest demanding separate Tipraland for indigenous people and scrapping of Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA).

“We strongly opposed the move and requested to keep Tripura out from the ambit of CAA, govt paid no heed to our demand,” Jamatia said.

At their demonstration, they would also push for their long standing demand of the separate statehood for indigenous people – Tipraland.

“We demand that Tripura be exempted from the CAA. We have protested against this earlier. Besides, we have a demand for Tipraland. In demand of these two issues, we have decided to hold sit-in for an indefinite period from January 6,” said IPFT assistant general secretary Mangal Debbarma.
