Chairman of the TIPRA Motha party in Tripura – Pradyot Debbarma – has reiterated that an alliance with the BJP is not possible until the time his party’s ‘Greater Tipraland’ demand is not recognised by the saffron party. 

Debbarma accused the BJP in Tripura of trying to portray the TIPRA’s ‘Greater Tipraland’ demand as unconstitutional. 

He said that there can be no alliance between the BJP and TIPRA until the saffron party gives a written assurance that the ‘Greater Tipraland’ demand would be recognised. 

Notably, a clash broke out between the supporters and workers of the BJP and TIPRA Motha on Sunday evening at Mandwai in West Tripura district.
