In its crusade to introduce National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Tripura on the lines of neighbouring state of Assam, the Indigenous Nationalist Party of Twipra (INPT) is contemplating to approach the Supreme Court.
Sources at INPT revealed that the regional party with an attempt to gain lost ground in the State is all out to introduce NRC in the State and will move the apex court even as the process takes a final shape in Assam.
Meanwhile party insiders revealed that INPT leadership had met senior ministers in the Central Government including the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh who had reportedly assured them that the matter could be considered only after the ongoing process in Assam was over.
Senior INPT leaders including party president Bijay Kumar Hrangkhawal and Jagadish Debbarma had also called on veteran Congress leader and former Union Minister Salman Khurshid to discuss the issue.
INPT sources also said that Salman Khurshid has assured that when the matter will reach the Supreme Court he will fight the case without charging a single penny as fees.
The senior Congress leader, it is learnt has asked the INPT leadership to have patience and wait for the ‘right moment’.
Meanwhile, Patal Kanya Jamatya who created quite a storm by securing an order from the apex court with regard to the NRC case is still awaiting Delhi’s response to the notice issued by the Supreme Court.
It is learnt she is also prepared for a legal battle to secure NRC for Tripura after the Centre replies to the issue.
