Agartala: July 08. Following the uproar by Tipra Motha MLAs during the budget speech in the Tripura Legislative Assembly today, party chairman Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma on Saturday has directed his party’s MLA to channel their pressure within the Assembly in coming days too, to demonstrate the strength of the party to the state government and the Government of India.
Speaking at a massive gathering in Madhab Bari at Khumulwng, the headquarters of the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAAD), Pradyot said, “On Friday, when Tipra Motha MLAs were engaged in a protest in the Assembly, it was a commendable act. We have never witnessed such things in the Assembly before. While climbing on tables and staging a protest may have been wrong, isn’t it worse when an MLA watches obscene videos? These 13 Tipra Motha MLAs will have a significant impact on the 32 MLAs from the BJP. We must exert pressure because this fight is not just for us, but for our blood, community, and land,” he asserted.
Pradyot further stated, “What my MLAs did was a commendable job. On Monday, there will be another session of Assembly, and we will raise our voices for the Tiprasa people, ensuring they resonate loudly so that the secretariat and the assembly shake. Do not fear; if you succumb to fear today, you will face troubles for the rest of your lives. Maintain pressure on the Assembly, and our warriors on the ground will continue to exert pressure. We will fight everywhere to make the Government of India understand that we are not weak.”
He also criticized the state government for allocating a meager 2 percent of the budget to the TTAADC.
