Agartala: September 23. Tipra Motha has declared a 12-hour total shutdown in the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) on September 30.
This move aims to emphasize the demand for a constitutional solution for the indigenous population of the state and exert pressure on the Central government to address this issue promptly.
During a press conference today, former Tipra Motha chairman Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma announced that the shutdown will be in effect from 6 AM to 6 PM.
“This marks the commencement of our message to the Government of India, emphasizing our urgent need for a resolution. On September 30th, we will voice our demands before the Central government. All essential services will be exempt from this shutdown. We want to convey to Delhi that we have waited long enough and it’s time for a swift resolution. This symbolic shutdown is in pursuit of our constitutional solution for Greater Tipraland,” stated Pradyot.
Pradyot also called upon all indigenous individuals who feel they haven’t received justice and seek a constitutional solution to rally behind this shutdown.
“I want to ensure that there are no divisive sentiments. This is a collective message from the indigenous people of Tripura to the Government of India. We seek justice for our survival and existence,” Pradyot added.
