AGARTALA, Feb 12 (TIWN): Reacting over the ongoing road and rail blockades across Tripura by regional parties, CM Dr. Manik Saha said, “We are discussing the matter. Strike can not help the issue in any way”.

“Strike only causes sufferings of the common men. They should understand it ! However, we are discussing and hoping a solution to the matter,” said CM.

Various student organizations of Tripura regional parties have called for a strike, and road blockades in Tripura on Monday seeking restoration of Roman script for uses of Kokborok language in Tripura Board of Secondary Examination (TBSE) conducted examinations.

The issue erupted after TBSE declared that Roman script could not be used for Kokborok language anymore. Till now both Roman and Bangla were allowed whereas the sudden order has generated resentment and also hurdles for many students who are from English medium backgrounds.

TBSE President however has put an excuse of sending a request to CBSE to allow Roman script for Kokborok and the request is yet pending.

Reacting to TBSE President’s claim that due to CBSE not permitting TBSE to allow Roman script for Kokborok language exams, leader of the opposition Animesh Debbarma said, this claim is baseless and false. He accused TBSE President of making an irrelevant excuse for his decision. “Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) is an autonomous body, how can any other board influence its decisions?” asked Animesh Debbarma.
