Assam CM: BJP Will Ever Divide Tripura Into Two Parts

Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on February 7 revealed the truth about the discussion of the partnership with TIPRA Motha Chairman and declared that BJP will not attempt to split Tripura into two pieces.

While addressing a campaign for BJP in Tripura, Sarma who is also NEDA convener said, “Praydot Kishore Manikya Debbarma meet me and held a meeting in Guwahati and in Delhi asking to give him Greater Tipraland so that he will come in an understanding with BJP. Then I said Greater Tipraland is not possible but we will work for the development of the masses and for their right and you can’t divide Tripura into two parts. But he insisted and stick to his point”.

Further Assam CM claimed that he has told Pradyot will not let him divide Tripura into two parts.

“I told him that if BJP forms a government or not we will not divide Tripura into two parts. I said to his face that he will never get greater Tipraland because his grandfather has never demanded Tipraland but how he can demand it? This is not possible. We will work for development for tribal. We can’t divide Tripura into two parts”.

Assam’s chief minister and NEDA convener remarked earlier on February 3 in a media interview, “What is Tipraland…you have to separate Tripura to have Tipraland.”

The NEDA convener Himanta Biswa Sarma asserted that the TIPRA Motha president was in talks with the saffron party and that the BJP had also made contact with the Motha chief.

The BJP presented the TIPRA Motha with the full package for the development, language, and economy of the tribal people at a series of meetings conducted earlier in Guwahati.

“BJP ready for any kind of devolution but do not ask to divide Tripura,” said CM Sarma.

The NEDA convener further said that the family of the TIPRA Motha’s Pradyot Bikram Manikya Debbarma was responsible for the creation of Tripura and is no longer able to divide it.

“Division of Tripura is not acceptable to BJP,” said the NEDA convener.
