Fenced out of progress: Why Indians near Tripura border can't avail govt schemes

Agartala: What makes an Indian citizen? Does it entail the right to vote, access to government schemes, and the right to be heard? If so, then there is a strong case for thousands of Indians living in Tripura to believe that they are Indians only in theory. 

Sample this: they can vote in elections but are not entitled to government schemes. Education, Health and other basics remain a privilege for most, and what they can or cannot do is not dictated by regular laws; instead, they must obey everything the border forces say.
