IPFT's conditional 'YES' to BJP


Agartala, January 10, 2018: The IPFT poured water on all speculations that were doing round over possible electoral alliance with the BJP in assembly elections slated for February. Two day meeting of central executive of the tribal party has resolved to negotiate alliance with the saffron party only if the latter gives recognition to its demand for a separate state named Tipraland.

IPFT President N.C. Debbarma and senior functionaries on Wednesday evening declared its willingness to contest election together with BJP to out seat CPI(M), but ‘there would be no compromise on Tipraland issue’.

BJP already clarified that its ready to negotiate all issues, but not anything that would create division the state and its people. Party’s state President Biplab Deb repeatedly said ‘no and never’ on Tipraland.
