IPFT, TIPRA to stage mass demonstration for ‘separate state’ in New Delhi
The Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT) and The Indigenous Progressive Regional Alliance (TIPRA) will stage a mass demonstration for a separate state in New Delhi on November 17-18.
Addressing a press conference on November 7, IPFT assistant general secretary Mangal Debbarma said that IPFT will continue their movement and will submit their deputation demanding ‘Tipraland’ in Delhi.
“Last two years we could not hold the demonstration because of Covid, but this year our protest will be held jointly for a separate state. About 200 leaders, workers and supporters of TIPRA will also join us. The mass demonstration will be held for two days in Jantar Mantar," Mangal state adding that they will place their demands before Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“We will fight till our demands are not fulfilled”, Mangal added.
On TIPRA’s demand for a ‘Greater Tipraland’, Mangal has said that both theirs and TIPRA's demands are almost the same and both are within the framework of the Article 3 of the Indian Constitution.
He also claimed that other regional political parties, NGOs will also join their movement.
