Amidst the sworn-in ceremony of the cabinet ministers of the new government in Tripura on Wednesday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah has initiated the process for a constitutional solution for Tripura’s indigenous people.
Tipra Motha Chief Pradyot Kishore Debbarma highlighted the information on Wednesday and said that an interlocutor will be appointed soon for this process.
This day, BJP national president JP Nadda and Amit Shah met the royal scion at the state guest house in Agartala amid strong indications that Motha might join the BJP-led alliance in Tripura.
Pradyot Kishore thanked the Home Minister for understanding the genuine problems of indigenous people.
In the twitter post, he added, “We successfully got our Bru people rehabilitation in our state after 23 years by signing the Bru accord and today we have started a huge dialogue to ensure that our survival and existence are protected”.
Motha Supremo also mentioned in the tweet that issues such as alliance and cabinet were never discussed, instead the interest of dopha (nation) of Tiprasas was only discussed.
While speaking to reporters after the meeting, he said, “We will have a series of talk with chief minister Manik Saha, we are here for the betterment of Tripura. We are here for a constitutional solution for the indigenous community”.
Notably, the BJP won 32 seats and its ally IPFT won 1 seat in the recent assembly elections to get the winning majority.
Sources said that three ministerial berths have been kept vacant in the new state cabinet for the Tipra Motha, which emerged as the second-largest party after winning 13 seats,
The BJP central leadership has been trying to persuade the Tipra Motha to join the government.
