AGARTALA, Nov 15 (TIWN): IPFT was never formed before the CPI-M regime but it came in action since 2000 after surrendered NLFTs had formed a party naming IPFT with the full approval from the CPI-M Govt. Today, CPI-M is blaming opposition BJP for playing with sentiments of tribal people, fueling them with separatist policies helping to set Tipraland and showing patriotism by arresting Ranjit Debbarma like persons. But is this allegation is just for allegation to woo Bengali majority’s vote banks ? Let’s review in 1992 what Chief Minister Manik Sarkar had actually said about Tribal/ Bengali population. Even though in 1932’s census the Bengali population was more than tribals (as many parts of Bangladesh was under Tripura King’s regime, later separated with East Pakistan), but Manik Sarkar being the party Secretary of that time clearly wrote, “Tribals who were 70 % of the population, during Maharaja's time have now come to 23 %..."

"the 'Bangladeshi foreigners' have started silently invading the TTADC...if this process is not stopped forthwith the Tribal identity itself will be in danger", the statement further said. 

This statement was placed by Manik Sarkar before CPI-M state committee on 26th Feb. 1992 that further led by Manik Sarkar saying, "During last 48 months, Tribals got tremendously frustrated because they can not place their confidence on the Govt (Congress Govt), which started an undeclared war against the tribal minorities...".

With the sole aim to break communal harmony and defeat ruling Congress, Manik Sarkar also said the following : 

1) Inner permit must be introduced for Bengali entry to maintain the majority of the tribals TTADC areas.

2) MTF (Mobile Task Force) must be recognized with Assam Rifles to prevent to further infiltration from Bangladesh.

3) Bangladeshi foreigners must be identified & they must be kept in camps.

4) Central Govt must seal Tripura-Bangladesh border.

However after coming in power after 1993, Manik Sarkar didn't feel it necessary in his long 24 years of regime for Inner permit or Border security, whereas without VISA, Passport even Jihadis are also staying happily in state.

CM’s right hand like Minister Shahid Chowdhury has also licensed the Ganja producers to go with their free illegal business in Sonamura-Baxanagar area for the sake of Communist vote bank and Finance.  Rather state govt has said Tripura doesn't need arm forces as it's a peaceful land. And in case of Tripura-Bangladesh border even after Centre's pushing, Tripura Govt is not at all cooperating to seal the border, that has been running the state for 24 years.

That was Manik Sarkar in 1992 as per his statement signed by Manik Sarkar himself. From Mandai Bengali massacre by Tribal extremists to all anti-national activities, CPI-M’s direct hand never allowed Tripura to prosper.

CPI-M in one hand played as godfather for Bengalees protection but in other hand instigated Tribal groups to unleash violence against innocent non-Tribals.

CPI-M is now ashamed of IPFT's nude rally and but it's time to uncloth CPI-M.
