Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT) has been holding seat-sharing talks with ally BJP and opposition Tipraha Indigenous Progressive Regional Alliance (TIPRA).

IPFT President and state minister Prem Kumar Reang on Sunday said that they held a close door meeting with the TIPRA leaders led by party supremo Pradyot Bikram Manikya Deb Barman in Guwahati the previous day.

“We are now talking with both the BJP and the TIPRA. Our seat-sharing talks remained inconclusive so far. Once this is finalised we would announce it before the public. “

The IPFT is demanding Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) as a full-fledged state.

He said, “Deb Barman has been wholeheartedly fighting for the cause of the indigenous tribals. We are ready to fight the elections together.”

Deb Barman told the media in Guwahati that the leaders of both the parties have started talks for merger or fighting together during which issues on common flag and symbol would be discussed.

He said, “The party or parties which would give written assurance supporting our demand, we would forge electoral alliance with them. It is completely false propaganda that we would go into alliance with BJP or Congress or CPI-M.”Deb Barman said that the TIPRA, the IPFT, and all other like-minded parties can fight the upcoming Assembly polls together on a common symbol for the greater cause of the tribals, who constitute one third of Tripura’s little over four million population.

The BJP, in alliance with the tribal-based party IPFT, came to power in the 2018 Assembly polls.
