AGARTALA, Jan 30 (TIWN): Defeating BJP's JUMLA Politics & N.C.Debbarma, Mebar Jamatia's bootlicking type allegiance to Biplab Deb, All indigenous, regional parties joined together opposing BJP Govt's Citizenship Bill in Tripura . A massive protest rally at the Khumlwng on Wednesday opposing the bill followed by 8 hours long protest held on Tuesday led by Rajmata (Royal Queen) of Tripura. At the same time, huge resentments have been fueled against two IPFT top leaders holding Ministry in BJP-IPFT Govt led cabinet N C Debbarma and Mebar Jamatia as they denied to speak against BJP even after all Tiprasa section demanded their resignations from Ministry on BJP’s divisive policy and citizenship bill. With a shocking development it has been known that IPFT President Minister NC Debbarma who has been acting like BJP’s puppet since he assumed Ministerial post warned all his activists and indigenous people not to conduct such a rally against the Govt. N.C.Debbarma also ordered petrol pump dealers to shutdhown the pumps for the day, so that the rally people can not go far for the protest. Amid strong objection from two of the IPFT Ministers, IPFT supporters flooded the rally with black flags marking BJP era as the Black Era.

Except BJP, all the political parties opposed Citizenship Bill.Chief Minister Biplab Deb's Home Dept was exposed after footage revealed Jirania violence of January 9, 2019 was instigated by BJP and Tripura Police led by SP West Ajit Pratap Singh ordered Police firing. 

Earlier, BJP-IPFT Govt had blamed CPI-M and INPT and against indigenous supporting regional parties and student organization INPT and TSF, Tripura Police had 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', daily newspaper Tripra Darpan reported.

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 Pratap 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.

Earlier, on January 19, with a major blow to Chief Minister Biplab Deb’s visit to Dasarambari and Madhabbari, locals didn’t accepted him and his team to step inside the area of Dasharam Bari where the actual incident of Police led brutal violence took place on January 8.

During Chief Minister’s visit, angry locals had covered King Bir Bikram Manikya’s face with black colour cloth displaying their anger on police firing and attack on the statue, vandalized statue of the King. However later in front of CM the cover was opened by his people amid huge security. On January 8, under Home Ministry which is also holding by Chief Minister Biplab Deb during NESO led protest against Modi Govt’s controversial Citizenship Bill, brutal firing of Tripura Police injured 6 Tiprasa youths fueled by shops and houses burning of various tribals, non-tribals in that area by BJP activists. When the injured people were being taken to hospital police further attacked the ambulance forced the ambulance to escape from police attack and reached at CRPF camp and later the CRPF force under protection shifted the patients in hospital. On that night immediately various political leaders visited GB hospital but it took 12 days for Chief Minister Biplab Deb to visit GB hospital and Madhabari as he was afraid of mass anger after wrongdoings by Tripura Police, Home Dept and BJP activists. Till day, Govt didn’t allow Judicial investigation in Madhabpur violence and finally when he visited there, people boycotted him.

BJP State Govt first was not ready even to compensate the people, whereas yesterday Pradyot Manikya from his own pocket compensated tribals/ non-tribals victims slamming the State Govt for not compensating them. Manikya also said that the critically injured Sumit Debbarma who was sent to Kolkata hospital Govt didn’t help him yet except flight fares. Both community’s people assured media, that there is no fight between two communities but on January 8 all of them were devastated.

Today's massive rally with black flags led by Tiprasa is haunting BJP’s indigenous vote banks ahead of Lok Sabha election.
