Agartala: May 07. As many as 50 stranded students of Tripura arrived from Manipur this evening after TIPRA Motha Chairman Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma has helped them.
Speaking with reporters, Pradyot said, “From my end I have sponsored tickets to 50 students of Tripura who were stranded in Manipur. I want to help them as during my bad time tiprasa was there with me and helped me. I have borne all the ticket expenses. When they were with me during my bad times, it is my duty to be with them. I am not taking any government help and spending money from my own pocket.
More 15 people have contacted with me and would bring them back soon. He however claimed that after TIPRA Motha’s decision the government has decided to bring the students back in Tripura from Manipur. During Covid I also helped them and it is my duty. During election time the poor tiprasa people have donated money for us so cant I spend lakh for them?”.
On Manipur violence, Pradyot said, “Meitei and Kukis are our brothers and sisters. I want to tell them not to fight with each other’s and want to tell them to ask the Meitei and Kuki Ministers why they mum in this situation. And we want peace and no violence should be taken place”.
