Chief Minister Manik Saha made it clear on Thursday that the BJP-led government will never support demand like ‘Greater Tipraland’ or ‘Tipraland’.
The statement came after a high-level meeting held between TIPRA Motha supremo Pradyot Kishore Debbarma, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and few other top leaders of BJP on Wednesday.
Notably, the regional party TIPRA Motha raised demands of the ‘Greater Tipraland’ and emerged as the second major party in the 60-member Tripura Assembly by winning 13 seats.
CM Manik Saha said, “We had discussion on tribal welfare on how to uplift the socio-economic condition of the indigenous people”.
CM Saha clarified the matter as the Tipra Motha chief after the meeting claimed that the Union Home Minister will officially appoint an interlocutor to look into the problems of indigenous people and take corrective measures.
CM emphasized that tribal welfare will be a priority area for the BJP-IPFT government.
He added that the government will work according to the vision document, which was unveiled before the 2023 Assembly elections.
CM Saha claimed that the BJP will get more seats in the next general elections (2024 Lok Sabha elections) in Tripura as well as in the entire Northeast compared to what it did in the 2019 elections.
