A delegation of EMs and MDCs of the TIPRA Motha, led by its chief Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarman, held a peaceful protest in Agartala city in front of the Raj Bhavan on Friday.
For several months, they have been trying to secure a meeting with Satyadeo Narain Arya, Tripura’s Governor to discuss important issues concerning the indigenous population of the state.
However, despite their persistent efforts, they have not yet been granted an appointment to address these concerns.
In a letter spanning four pages, the TIPRA Motha Chairman and Purna Chandra Jamatia, the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC)’s Chief Executive Member (CEM) addressed Governor SN Arya.
They highlighted that the indigenous population of Tripura is being compelled to endure a secondary status in their own homeland, despite deserving to live with dignity, peace, and prosperity.
They lamented the state administration’s negligence, which has resulted in unrest among the people.
The letter states that despite seeking an appointment for several months to discuss their concerns in detail, the delegation has been unable to meet the Governor due to unknown reasons.
The delegation expressed their hope that their concerns will be addressed by the Governor.
Through the letter, the Motha delegation appeals to the Governor, as the constitutional head of the state and someone with extensive experience in public life, to ensure justice for the indigenous people (tribals) of the state.
