GUWAHATI : Ahead of the assembly elections in five states, there is a big challenge for the BJP in the North-East. In Tripura, the party that formed a coalition government with the BJP has also come together to raise its voice against the BJP. The Trinamool Congress led by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has also joined it. There is pain and fear among the NORTH EASTERN LEADERS of the BJP over this. Meanwhile, swadeshi people of Manipur have come together to raise their voice against the BJP in the upcoming assembly elections. The list of natives of the North-East will be a big challenge for the BJP.

Tripura Swadeshi Progressive Regional Alliance (TIPRA) and Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) organized a joint conference in Guwahati for all round development of indigenous people of North Eastern Region. A new political initiative has been launched in north-east India with the aim of countering the strength of the BJP. Assam Ethnic Council and Tripura-based Tipraha Swadeshi Progressive Regional Alliance today announced that they will launch an initiative to create a platform for all regional parties in the North Eastern States. AJP President Lurinjyoti Gogoi and Tipra Chairman Pradyot Bikram Manikya Debbarma said the proposed platform will work towards strengthening regional political movements to protect the “identity” of indigenous people.

 Gogoi said, “We have decided to join hands for the future of the North-East. Together, we will fight to protect the identity, language and culture of the entire region. This will benefit all the States. He said the Forum will strive to unite all like-minded regional parties to protect the interests of the indigenous people. The two leaders signed a joint statement demanding immediate repeal of the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and completion of the updation of the National Register of Citizens (NRC). On the other hand, Debbarma said that no one in politics is untouchable. Debbarma claimed to have held talks with several partners. He claimed that talks were held in Tripura and with other organisations in Assam, Meghalaya and Mizoram as “their issues have not been addressed” . He termed it as ‘election winning machine only’. Addressing a group of AJP leaders and supporters, Debbarma mentioned the possibility of an alliance with the Mamata Banerjee-led party. He said the Congress had a key role to play in signing the historic Assam Accord, mizo peace agreement and tnv agreement in Tripura. So the party in this area weakened due to ‘politics of balance rather than clear vision’.
