Tipra Motha supremo Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma on Friday urged party leaders to peacefully observe the proposed September 30 bandh in the tribal district council area and make it a success.

The regional party called for a 12-hour bandh in the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council, demanding an early constitutional solution to the problem of its people.

“I appeal to party MLAs, executive members and MDCs of TTAADC to be on the ground to make the bandh a total success in order to send a strong message to Delhi. I want to see all the warriors of Tiprasa on the ground in order to remain connected with the people,” Debbarma said on social media.

He said that for the past 76 years, the indigenous natives of the state have been facing injustice by being deprived of rights to land, politics, and the economy. “We waited for long but now we want out rights to be recognised,” he added.

The royal heir — explaining that the bandh should not be considered a political move — said the purpose of the bandh is to send a strong message to Delhi that “Tiprasa people are united and raise voices for their rights”.

The Tipra Motha chief also took a swing at the CPI(M) for opposing the bandh called by the regional party.

“The people, who came and urged me not to field candidates in Boxanagar and Dhanpur assembly by-elections, are opposing bandh called by Tipra Motha! They had projected Manik Sarkar (ex-CM) as the poorest chief minister but did not say why he had not done anything for the Tiprasa people? They had ruled the state for 25 years but kept the Tiprasa people most underdeveloped in the northeast,” Debbarma alleged.

Security forces have been asked to remain alert in the tribal council areas and all the SPs in the district were asked to increase security measures to maintain peace and order in the area during the bandh.

“Additional companies of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and TSR jawans have been deployed to prevent any untoward incident. “We are also in talks with the leaders of Tipra Motha to ensure peace,” said Jyotishman Das Chowdhury, Assistant Inspector General (AIG), Law & Order.

Lok Sabha Polls Will Be Dynastic Politics & Corruption Versus Development Fight: Nadda

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president JP Nadda has said the upcoming Lok Sabha elections will be a battle between dynastic politics and corruption on one side and development on the other.

Addressing party workers from Mumbai’s western suburbs during his visit to the metropolis on Wednesday, Nadda said under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, India is well on its way to become the third largest economy in the world from fifth now.

Attacking anti-BJP opposition parties, he alleged that they were either dynastic or steeped in corruption.

“You have to reach out to voters and seek their support for a fresh mandate (for BJP at the Centre). First-time voters in the last ten years have seen only development and not corruption like previous governments,” Nadda asserted, referring to the decade-long rule of the Modi administration that started in 2014.

He said the Lok Sabha elections, likely to be held in April-May, will be a fight between dynastic politics and corruption on one side and development on the other.

Dynastic politics and corruption will lead to destruction, Nadda said and highlighted the BJP’s development agenda.

Earlier in the day, Nadda met BJP office-bearers from all the 36 assembly constituencies in Mumbai besides party MPs and MLAs from the metropolis.

In his address, Nadda asked BJP leaders from Mumbai to ensure the party ideology reaches the last person in society and urged them to give a befitting reply to opposition attacks on the saffron outfit and its government.

He advised BJP leaders to extensively use social media and seek support of prominent personalities on issues of public interest.

Nadda also chaired the Election Management Committee’s meetings for all the six Lok Sabha constituencies in Mumbai as part of preparations for the national polls.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP and its then-ally, the undivided Shiv Sena, won three seats each in Mumbai. In the Maharashtra assembly polls held in October that year, the BJP won 16 of the 36 seats in the city, while 14 were bagged by the Sena.

The state, where the BJP is in power in alliance with the Shiv Sena led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and the Ajit Pawar-headed NCP, has a 288-member legislative assembly.

BJP to Release Documentary on Alleged Atrocities Against Women in West Bengal’s Sandeshkhali

This comes amid a raging war of words between the BJP and the TMC over alleged incidents of rape and harassment of women in Sandeshkhali in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district ahead of the Lok Sabha elections

The BJP is set to release a documentary on Sandeshkhali on Thursday with the party intensifying its attack on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government over the alleged incidents of atrocities and sexual assault on women there.

The “exclusive” documentary titled ‘The Sandeshkhali Socker – The Big Reveal’ will be released Thursday morning at 9 am, the BJP said in post on X, asking Banerjee in Bangla, “Didi ke bolo aaro koto ‘Sandeshkhali’ (Tell didi how many more Sandeshkhali like incidents)”.

This comes amid a raging war of words between the BJP and the TMC over alleged incidents of rape and harassment of women in Sandeshkhali in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

The riverine Sandeshkhali area — situated on the borders of the Sunderbans, about 100 kilometres from Kolkata — has been witnessing protests after the local women accused absconding Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Sheikh Shahjahan and his supporters of land grab and sexual assault under coercion.

Interestingly, ‘Didi Ke Bolo’ is a campaign launched by the TMC after the 2019 Lok Sabha polls to provide a platform for the people of West Bengal to directly raise their concerns or lodge complaints with Chief Minister Banerjee.

The TMC’s move was reportedly aimed at countering the BJP in the state.
