While speaking in a press conference, Pradyot who is also royal scion of the state said that violence will continue until and unless police are not being given free hand.
“Why Tripura is known for violence in the entire Northeastern region? If police are being given free hand then criminals will be arrested soon. This goondas were their during Congress’ time, and now in BJP’s time. If today we are protecting them politically and when we will be not in power eventually they will attack us. These people are threat to society. There are good people also in police and ready to arrest. But when they arrest somebody whether it is regarding drugs or political violence, police receives call from ministers, MLAs and etc to release the culprits. Violence will continue until and unless police are not being given free hand”, said Pradyot.
He further said that if today police don’t arrest the perpetrators of the violence then in next two months violence will increase and common citizen will suffer.This morning Pradyot has also flagged off a train in which over 1400 workers of Tipra Women Federation, Youth Tipra Federation and TIPRA Motha have left for Delhi to press their demand of ‘Greater Tipraland’ in front of Jantar Mantra on December 05 and 06 peacefully.“We will be writing to the home ministry on our demand”, said Pradyot.
