All the major political parties in Tripura rejected the demand for a separate state,’Twipra land’ raised by Indigenous People’s Front of Twipra (IPFT), a tribal-based party.

Secretary of the state Committee of ruling CPI-M, Bijan Dhar today said, “we oppose this demand because it is divisive, irresponsible and politically motivated.

This demand for Twipra Land is aimed at creating a separate state by dividing the small Tripura state, which would increase the sufferings of the people.”

The IPFT, in a statement earlier, called for blockade of the Assam-Agartala National Highway on June 22 for 24 hours to press for their demand.

“This demand is aimed at destabilizing the communal harmony between tribal and non-tribal communities of the state and against peace and development of the state,” the CPI-M leader told reporters here.

The IPFT demanded to carve out the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC), home to the tribals, who constitute one-third of the state population and occupy two-third of the state territory to form the new state.
