AGARTALA, May 14 (TIWN): Biplab Deb’s failure to contain IPFT’s pre-planned assaults on BJP activists exposed grim situation in ADC areas. N.C.Debbarma led separatists IPFT activists of Tripura have demanded the immediate resignation of Block Advisory Committee Chairman (BAC) Ranabir Debbarma, who is an INPT member and to replace that Chairman post with an IPFT candidate. With that demand in various ADC areas protests have been launched by the IPFT activists. At Killa, Bagma area the block offices are closed, strikes are observed demanding BJP MLA Rampada Jamatia's resignation and to replace him with an IPFT leader. The protests led by the IPFT emerged tensed situations amid tight security arrangements on those places. No unwanted incident however has been occurred yet and the protests are going in democratic manner.

The Lefunga block office was locked by IPFT activists today morning with the same demand. According to IPFT, as IPFT is in power, so an INPT candidate can not be exist as BAC chairman. Tense situation also existing in Dhalai District and Tulasikhar Block of Khowai District also. 

The IPFT activists also met their leaders and held a meeting in this regard. 

Tripura BJP led State Govt is however totally silent on that issue. IPFT President cum Tripura Minister NC Debbarma has met the agitators and discussed about their demands. 

The agitators said, "We want our candidate Rajendra Debbarma as BAC Chairman of Legunga and in all Blocks". 

IPFT’s continuous attack on BJP activists, failure to respect pre-Poll agreement signals bitter relation between Biplab Deb and N.C.Debbarma.

Tension is going high in the ADC areas as each time, IPFT tried to be in contrast with the state govt then murders, clashes, kidnappings issued hit the state. 

Last year, for long 11 days the IPFT activists created blockade over the National Highway and Railway which continued from July 10, 2017 to July 20, 2017 led the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to interfere in Tripura state affairs.

Not only this, the clashes with IPFT killed Tripura journalist Santanu Bhaumik and many others like driver Jiban Debnath.

Amid all such tensions, the BJP had aligned with IPFT, which led mass resentments among the majority Bengalis but following the 25 years of CPI-M regime and anti-CPI-M flow due to various recruitment scams and fake beneficiary system, public voted for the interest of BJP-IPFT govt.

But within 2 months of the election result, the IPFT led problems are becoming unmanageable even for the BJP Govt, which has created mass tension across the state.

Recently at least 6 major clashes occurred among BJP and the IPFT.
