AGARTALA, Jan 27 (TIWN): Tiprasa people anger exploded en masse against BJP’s mass cheating, JUMLA, divisive Citizenship Bill. Massive gathering of Tiprasa people were observed in Tripura protesting against the Citizenship Bill 2016 led by erstwhile Manikya Dynasty’s royal scion Pradyot Manikya. A protest rally comprised of hundreds of people chanting against Citizenship Bill started from Baijal Bari area in Khowai at 12 PM. Chants of “Poila Jati Ulo Party” was heard in the agitators’ slogan which led huge tension and violence on January 8, 2019. They scripted the message to PM Modi, “PM Modi, Tripura is not a dumping ground”. Also today Pradyot Manikya helped the bullet victims financially. Pradyot Manikya alters further all communities saying not only the Tiprasa people will face the problem with Citizenship Bill’s implementation but also unemployment problem will increase more. “Prime Minister Narendra Modi is coming on February 9, but he has to understand that his was not elected here by Delhi, rather people of Tripura had elected them. BJP has to understand the sentiment of people of Tripura, even though Tripura is a small state" he said.

Pradyout Manikya further has slammed both IPFT and BJP for being failed to order for a Judicial investigation.

“IPFT is talking about Judicial investigation, BJP is Magisterial investigation. We will wait for a few time and if justice is not done, then in coming days, protests will be in bigger form”.

It was on January 8, SP West Ajit Pratap Singh’s illegal brutal order of firing had hit the NESO agitators from behind, proving that police were running after the agitators. In democracy helpless people who were staging protests for their rights were brutally injured just because the protest was against ruling Govt. Police also didn’t take any action against BJP miscreants who had burnt houses of people and violated the whole situation by unnecessary entering in Jirania with BJP flag from outside. On the same day, at Agartala during CPI-M’s strike, Pratima Bhowmik, Rajib Bhattacharjee and other BJP activists in mafia style forced shops, shopping complexes, super markets like Big Bazar, Metro Bazar to open shutters and the same was tried to apply at Jirania, but police acted against the innocents Tiprasa agitators instead of the ruling party members.

Then when the injured people were being taken to hospital police attacked the ambulance and the videos are viral.

Instead of taking action against police, with a major setback for indigenous supporting regional parties and student organization INPT and TSF under Biplab Deb led Police Dept have registered cases against 500 Tiprasa youths in Ranir Bazar and Jirania police stations, who are members of INPT and TSF in Jirania’s Madhabbari police firing incident. Against TSF Secretary Bishu Debbarma, President Upendra Debbarma, leader Sunil Debbarma and around 500 TSF students the case was registered. Case No-4/19 under IPC 148/149 / 333/ 153/ 307/ 436 427 is under investigation. But till now, which police officials were involved in this firing on students, no clarification yet has come in this regard, whereas there are demand from regional parties for suspension of SP West AJit Pratapa Singh who led the whole firing episode without announcement. NESO, IPFT Tipraha calling press conference has condemned the whole episode and almost all pollical parties have condemned the overall incident including looting of shops, setting fire on houses whereas police firing was on the top list of condemnation.  There was also a charge additionally imposed National Highway Act & Arms Act 27.

All the political parties except BJP and also NESO have demanded Judicial investigation in this case.
