Ahead of poll Pradyot meets Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma

Ahead of the crucial assembly election to 60-assembly constituencies in Tripura, the TIPRA Motha chairman Pradyot Bikram Manikya Deb Barma met with the senior BJP leader and Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday at Delhi to discuss the possibility of forging alliance with the ruling BJP party.

Talking to our correspondent over telephone Maharaja Pradyot Bikram Manikya said “We will not negotiate with our movement for any post or for any alliance and unless we get assurance in writing for our constitutional solution under Article 2 & 3 for Greater Tipraland, we will not forge alliance with any party”.

He said, “During the meeting, I clearly made my point that unless our demand for Greater Tipraland is met in writing, we will not move back from our demand.”

Asked about the possibility of meeting the demand of ‘Greater Tipraland’, Pradyot said, “Even nobody asked BJP that if Ram mandir is possible. They lead their movement in this regard. If their ideology was Ram mandir or Article 370 or removing Triple Talaque, then we also have our demand for Greater Tipraland.”

“Until and unless we get our demand met in writing, we will not forge alliance with any political party,” he said.

He said, “I clearly told Himanta ji that we will not have our credibility in our party if we move back from the demand of Greater Tipraland and deprive or cheat our people in Tripura.

He however said, “We will contest in at atleast 40-45 seats in the upcoming election in Tripura and for rest of the seats we will not forge alliance with any political parties.”
