Tripura: Congress demands conduct of ADC polls on time
AGARTALA, Feb 19:
The president of the Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC), Pijush Kianti Biswas has demanded that elections to Tripura Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) should be held on time to avoid constitutional crisis in the tribal areas.
"We want elections of TTAADC to be conducted before the expiry of present Council and the party has no reservation whether polls are held in 28 seats or 50 seats. The election must be held within the scheduled time", he told the media.
Recently, CEM of TTAADC Radha Charan Debbarma expressed his doubt over the timely elections in the tribal council in the wake of the state government's move to increase seat strength in TTAADC. Interestingly, the ruling BJP is yet to clear its stand on the timing of ADC elections.
