The Indigenous Nationalist Party of Tripura (INPT), a political party representing the ethnic community of the state has called for a sit-in program at Agartala scheduled to be organized on August 25 to press for the implementation of the NRC in Tripura

The publication of National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the northeastern India’s state of Assam has fuelled further the demands from Indigenous community based political party to implement it in neighbouring Tripura. 

The Indigenous Nationalist Party of Tripura (INPT), a political party representing the ethnic community of the state has called for a sit-in program at Agartala scheduled to be organized on August 25 to press for the implementation of the NRC in Tripura.

“NRC is a pertinent issue in Assam as well as for the country as a whole. Each and every state in India should have an NRC,” INPT General Secretary Jagadish Debbarma told to reporters on Friday.

“NRC was first prepared in Assam in 1951 but it was not updated owing to the vote-bank politics played by successive Congress governments. The Assam Accord was signed in 1985 by the Rajiv Gandhi government as a result of the protracted Assam agitation between 1979 and 1985. However, the government of Assam dilly-dallied over the issue and abdicated the job after making tentative attempts in 2005,” Debbarma said.

“It was a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed with the Supreme Court which finally led to the preparation of the present NRC,” he added.

“The NRC in Tripura is of utmost importance because the indigenous people have been reduced to a minority here and infiltration from Bangladesh is continuing. This has to end by all means. So we’ll keep on demanding NRC,” asserted Debbarma.
