Tripura TIPRA Motha Protest: Protests have started against Tripura CM Manik Saha over his remarks on Tipra Motha chief Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma. A protest rally was taken out by the Tipra Motha Party in Tripura’s Khumulwang late on Wednesday (May 24) night. Tribal women’s groups are also protesting against Chief Minister Manik Saha. Now the Chief Minister’s reaction has also come to the fore on this matter.
Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha said that this is our internal matter. Many things happen inside our house which should not go out because it was a closed room meeting of a party. Some people are doing politics by using the statement for their personal gains. I have very warm relations with Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma and I have respect for his family. This respect will remain and we have no problem.
What did the Chief Minister say?
In fact, the Chief Minister had reportedly said that Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma, a royal scion and president of Tipra Motha, should not be called ‘Maharaj’. The Chief Minister’s statement came after a local newspaper quoted the CM as saying that he instructed his party workers not to address Pradyot Manikya as Maharaja during the state executive meeting on May 21.
Effigies of CM burnt
After Chief Minister Saha’s statement went viral, various tribal organizations and Tipra Motha Party started protest rallies across the state along with burning his effigies. Tipra Mahila Mahasangh has strongly condemned the Chief Minister’s statement and demanded a public apology. The party has also warned of launching a massive agitation across the state.
