Ruling BJP’s political partner IPFT had started 12 hours strike in Tripura today from morning 6 O’Clock in voice against Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) which has proposed to accept foreigners in India who came due to religious torments from the neighboring countries as Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afganistan.

The protest across Tripura remained peaceful and democratic, whereas police officials were seen convincing the IPFT Tiprasa leaders to withdraw the strike and later detained all the agitators. On the other side, a joint movement committee has called for strike in an indefinite time in the state unless CAB is dismissed totally. On being asked by media, IPFT leaders said that there is no link of IPFT with the rest of the regional parties and IPFT’s 12 hours strike to be conducted till 6 pm which started from 6 am today. However, IPFT top leaders were seen missing from the protest.
