AGARTALA, Jan 25 (TIWN): Terming the amendment for ADC granted by BJP led Central Cabinet INPT alleged, the amendment was brought just a vote bank game and Tripura ADC has been deprived, One-Constitution-One-Country policy has been violated by NDA Govt’


INPT General Secretary Jagadish Debbarma said that except some financial rights, nothing was given to Tripura, whereas a draft was made in 2015 which could not be implemented.

Jagadish Debbarma further said, “To pass a bill it has to be approved by Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha both sections of the parliament. Aim was to give 10 ADC areas of Northeast more power and we welcome to the spirit of the Govt but Tripura ADC has been totally deprived”.

“Since 2002, February 3rd, INPT has been struggling for more power for ADC. In a historical decision once in Tripura Assembly the then INPT MLA proposed one bill and it was supported by both CPI-M and Congress and since then this process has been started”.

“There is no doubt about that. INPT since 2002 in state and at Delhi has been protesting for this demand. But unfortunately today, being one constitution Tripura was deprived. The bill talked about Assam but there is no mention about Tripura, whereas UPA Govt attempted to increase the power of ADC and promote Kokborok language but the NDA Govt couldn’t fulfill that promise, even though one draft was prepared in 2015 with those issues which we had actually demanded. Thus this is noting but a JUMLA has been done by the NDA Govt”.
