AGARTALA, Jan 10 (TIWN): After 48 hours of police firing injured 6 youths( 1 critical) at Madhabbari in Jirania under West District, IPFT Minister Mebar Jamatia has delivered a blow to the Triprasa youths by backing BJP-IPFT Govt and turned the blames to INPT, NSO, CPI-M and other regional parties like TSF, IPFT (Tipraha) for the total violence. With a shocking development, when all other regional parties demanded IPFT’s withdrawal of support from the BJP Govt, IPFT has claimed, “Our Govt is giving its best efforts to the victims’ recovery as well as we are supporting them with Free-Medical-Treatment”. Moreover, IPFT has allowed 1 month of time for high level Judicial investigation report by Govt and wants to know which police officer ordered the firing during Jirania protest. It’s quite surprise, after 48 hours of passage the Home Ministry led by Biplab Deb couldn’t identify who ordered the firing. Addressing media Mebar Jamatia said, “The strike was not called by IPFT but it was called by INPT and CPI-M and some other parties, but during the strike, none of those parties’ leaders seen present on the road and the protest on National Highway was “uncontrolled”, “violent”.

“Earlier, 100 times we staged ‘dharnas’, ‘movements’, ‘blockades’ but no such incident happened. Then what was the wrong this time that such brutal consequences took place” ?, Mebar Jamatia told media.IPFT Minister Mebar Jamatia’s failure to condemn illegal Police firing ordered by SP West Ajit Pratap Singh stunned all Tiprasa youths cutting across Party lines.

IPFT also demanded compensation for those people who lost their properties in that violence regardless tribals and non-tribals.

Jamatia further claimed that such incidents prove that IPFT always was a democratic party and staged protest in democratic manners unlike INPT and other involved parties at there.

The political tornado in Tripura ahead of Lok Sabha Election started after state police led by SP West Ajit Pratap Singh started firing without prior announcement and that shooting injured 6 youths critically. Out of them one is under ventilation, critical, sent outside the state for better treatment.

The victim side said that during a road blockade in peaceful movement, two teams came face to face but suddenly police started firing but for that police neither announced anything in prior led the brutal incident.

A major section of the indigenous people demanded, Chief Minister Biplab Deb’s resignation from Home Ministry as well as from Chief Ministry.

Other regional parties have pressed IPFT to withdraw its support from BJP which is in alliance to hold the power. But IPFT led by Party President NC Debbarma has given full support to BJP-IPFT Govt, giving 1-month time for proper investigation.

Section 144 has been continuing in Madhabbari, whereas mobile-internet and SMS service is still halted.
