Stalemate continues as talks over road blockade failed
 

From A correspondent

Agartala, July 16:   The impasse over the rail and road blockade movement launched by the IPFT entered the seventh day on Sunday, as the dialogue between the agitation leaders and the State government failed to bring the ongoing crisis to an end.

Responding to an invitation by the Chief Secretary Sanjib Ranjan, a nine-member delegation led by IPFT president Narandra Chandra Debbarma met at the State Secretariat. But, it is yet to reach any desired conclusion.

The State government has stick to its guns about its inability to accept their demand of a separate state Twipraland, and urged the IPFT leaders to withdraw their blockade, considering the sufferings that people are facing. The agitation leaders also made their stand clear that withdrawing the blockade was not possible for them until and unless a specific assurance was given either by the State or the Central government.

The Chief Secretary apprised the leaders that the State was facing serious crisis of essential commodities due to the blockade but the leaders refused to call off the blockade.

Narendra Chandra Debbarma later told the reporters that a two-member delegation led by IPFT general secretary Meber Kumar Jamatia was in Delhi, who was likely to meet the Union Minister of State for Home Kiran Rijiju on Monday.

He said the party would review the situation on the basis of the outcome of the Delhi meeting and would take a final decision about the future course of their agitation.

Meanwhile, tension is running high in the State as the BJP has accused the State government for its failure to maintain the law and order situation despite serious sufferings of the people and issued a 48 hour ultimatum. State Pravari of the party, Sunil Deo Dhar told at a press conference that they would gharao the official residence of the Chief Minister Manik Sarkar if he fails to open the road.

The IPFT has been agitating since 2009 for a separate state carved out by upgrading the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) areas.

The politically important TTAADC constitutes two-thirds of Tripura’s 10,491 sq.km. area, which has 12,16,465 (mostly tribals) of the state’s 37 lakh population.

Meanwhile, President of another tribal party Indigenous Nationalist Party of Tripura — and former extremist leader — Bijoy Kumar Hrangkhawl said Tripura is the “Twipraland” and tribals have been living here for decades and there is no need to split the state.

“To protect the interest of the tribals, TTAADC can be made more powerful with increase in financial support, promulgation of inner line permit for outsiders, more land rights to the tribals and all-round development of the council areas,” Hrangkhawl added.
