This is bound to have a serious repercussion in Tripura that shares international border with Bangladesh.
According to royal scion, majority tribal people have lost the ‘power’ due to continuous infiltration from across the border. He disclosed that in the plea he had requested the apex court to increase scheduled tribe reserved seats in the Assembly.
He further clarified that he has filed the writ petition as a citizen not a political personality.
Notably, the royal scion is the working president of Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC).
