The TSF leadership made a formal announcement of their decision in Agartala on Sunday.
The TSF is the most powerful and oldest students’ body in Tripura.
TSF is also a part of the Northeast Students’ Organisation (NESO).
Reacting on the development TIPRA chairman – Pradyot Debbarma expressed happiness over the TSF joining the movement.
Debbarma said: “I have grown up with TSF and I am happy that they will endorse our movement. We have to speak up for our people in one voice.”
Notably, the Pradyot Debbarma-led TIPRA is spearheading the “Greater Tipraland” movement.
Earlier, chairman of The Indigenous People’s Regional Alliance (TIPRA) – Pradyot Debbarma had made it clear that his party’s main agenda will remain the “Greater Tipraland” cause.
Pradyot Debbarma had said that any political party mulling an alliance with the TIPRA, will have to, at first, accept his party’s ‘Tipraland’ demand.
“Our main demand in ‘Greater Tipraland’. Any political party interested in alliance with TIPRA, will have to give us in writing that they support our stand,” Debbarma had said.
He added: “Verbal commitments have no meaning. I will not fool my Tiprasa people. Till the time I don’t get anything in writing, I am not going to compromise on my stand.”
