Tripura Royal scion and The Indigenous Progressive Regional Alliance (TIPRA) chief Pradyot Debbarma on Monday appealed to other political parties to avoid negative politics ahead of the TTAADC elections.
TIPRA will be contesting the TTAADC (Tripura Tribals Area Autonomous District Council) elections for the first time.
TIPRA Chairman Pradyot Debbarma will be contesting the TTAADC elections from the Takarjala-Jampuijala constituency.
The TTAADC elections will be held on April 6 and the counting will take place on April 10.
Addressing the media at Ujjayanta Palace in Agartala, Pradyot Debbarma questioned, “Why are we attacking each other? Why are we engaging in negative politics?”
“Everyone is thinking and working for the development of the state. I request all political parties to abstain from violence,” Debbarma said.
Clashes between different political parties have been reported from different parts of Tripura ahead of the TTAADC elections.
Many people have sustained various degrees of injuries in these clashes.
Pradyot Debbarma said that after the TTAADC elections, he will meet with Tripura CPI(M) leader Jitendra Choudhury, Tripura deputy chief minister Jishnu Debbarma, Tripura Congress president Pijush Biswas and Tripura chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb.
“Problems like scarcity of drinking water, electricity, housing, road connectivity, etc should be addressed. The condition of roads in the TTAADC areas is very deplorable,” said the TIPRA chief.
Pradyot Debbarma further said that if his party comes to power in TTAADC then it will release a white paper on the first day, describing the amount of money ADC will get and in which purpose it has been used.
“The people have the right to know how the government funds have been utilized,” the TIPRA chief said.
“I am not interested in running a corrupt regime. I want to do something for the people of Tripura,” he said.
