Surrendered members of the Tripura United Indigenous People’s Council threaten govt to move court, UN agency if it fails to look into their long-pending issues
Agartala: Serving an ultimatum of five days to solve their various long-pending demands, the surrendered ultras of the Tripura United Indigenous People’s Council (TUIPC) have criticised the state government for not fulfilling their promises made during the tripartite agreement, involving Centre and the state government.
TUIPC is a conglomerate of surrendered militant organisations like All Tripura Tiger Force (ATTF), National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) and Tripura National Volunteers (TNV), among others.
The council members have also threatened the state government to block all connecting roads in the state if the authorities concerned failed to solve their long-pending demands during this time.
Addressing a press conference, TUIPC president Ananta Debbarma said that it has been 26 years since the agreement was signed with the government but less than 60% demands have been fulfilled till date.
“We were promised to provide employment, financial support and proper educational facilities for our children, but none of the promises have been fulfilled by the government till date,” Debbarma said.
Despite writing letters to President of India, Prime Minister, Union home minister, state chief minister on numerous occasions, nothing has been done to fulfill our demands, he alleged. “If required, we won’t hesitate to move court and International Human Rights Council of the United Nations to get justice,” Debbarma added.
Senior leader of the organisation were also present on the occasion.
