While the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government is in power in the state, the TIPRA Motha has been ruling the TTAADC since 2021.

“We had a cordial conversation. It was not a political meeting. Discussions were done regarding developmental activities in the ADC areas. I gave him the list and he assured me to look into it,” said Debbarma after the meeting.

Earlier this May, Debbarma met CM Saha to discuss issues related to the tribal council’s Bill pending with the Governor and its fund crisis.

“We got Rs.82 crores fund for salaries. But only salaries will not work. We asked for additional funds to do developmental tasks in the ADC,” Debbarma said on Wednesday.

The TIPRA Motha party on September 30 will hold a 12-hour strike in the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) areas across the state to press the Centre for their demand of ‘Greater Tipraland’ for the indigenous community.
