Kishore Manikya

Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma, the founder of the Tipra Motha party, called off his fast-unto-death protest on Sunday, a day after the Tipra Motha inked a tripartite agreement with the Centre and the Tripura government. The agitation had occurred at Hatai Kotor in the West Tripura district since February 28.

Pradyot Kishore, addressing a crowd of more than 30,000 people at the protest location, stated, “The Government of India has accepted in writing that mistakes were made in the past, and they would make constitutional solutions to correct them.” In this place, I had stated that I would leave without food in my stomach, but I would not return without anything. This triumph is not the triumph of a political party; rather, it is the triumph of young people, moms of tribal children, and children. Time has passed for us. Right now, we need to give some thought to the following generation.

In addition, Pradyot Kishore stated, “Our community was able to make its voice heard in New Delhi without resorting to violence or the use of firearms.” We were only able to accomplish this because we possessed thanks, which means oneness.

When he compared the tripartite deal to a newborn baby, he stated that in order to raise the baby, tribal members would need to collaborate with one another.

The Joint Working Group has been mandated by the accord to resolve all issues of the tribal people that are related to their history, land and political rights, culture, economic development, language, and other related topics. Pradyot Kishore stated that he desired for members of the Joint Working Group to include academics, teachers, lawyers, and learned and honest individuals who are familiar with the history of the state with whom they are familiar.

In addition, he stated that he would exert pressure on the central government to enhance educational facilities to provide tribal youngsters with the opportunity to engage in business not only in Tripura but also in West Bengal and the rest of the country.

He concluded that the agreement that was signed in New Delhi on Saturday was only sixty percent of the “fight,” and he stated, “We have to work hard to get the remaining forty percent.” Earlier, we signed agreements, but we did not follow through with them… It will bring about a significant shift in the situation if we even receive 70–80 percent of what they informed us of. And if thirty percent of the population, which is comprised of tribal people, can reap the benefits, the remaining seventy percent, which is comprised of non-tribal people, will also reap the benefits.

In addition to receiving support from Bengalis, Muslims, Manipuris, and other communities, the creator of Tipra Motha urged his followers to keep the peace and stated that his fast till death was supported by a variety of communities.

Although Pradyot Kishore did not provide any clarification regarding the rumors that Tipra Motha would be joining the state government in Tripura that is led by the BJP, he did make a profound statement. He stated that the previous king of Tripura, Maharaj Bir Bikram Kishore Manikya Debbarma, who was also his grandfather, adhered to the principle of “Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas” by welcoming people who were persecuted in what was formerly known as East Pakistan. This was well before the phrase achieved political significance.

It is noteworthy that three out of the twelve positions in the state cabinet were left vacant after the BJP administration was re-elected in the previous year under the leadership of the incumbent Chief Minister, Dr. Manik Saha.
