Two separate anti-CAA rallies were taken out in Tripura on Saturday- one by royal scion Pradyot Manikya Debbarma and one by CPI (M)’s tribal wing Tripura Rajya Upajati Gana Mukti Parishad (TRUGMP), reports Northeast Now news.

The TRUGMP rally began from Rabindra Shatabarshiki Bhawan and ended at Swami Vivekananda Grounds.

The leaders appealed the participants to fight unitedly and urged people from across tribal and non-tribal communities come together in order to thwart CAA.

The rally, which was organised on basis of 18-point issues, included the immediate demand to withdraw CAA, to yield more power to Tripura ADC and inclusion of Kokborok in 8th Schedule of the Constitution.

TRUGMP president Jitendra Choudhury, launching a scathing attack against the Centre over CAA, said, “Every half-an-hour one farmer commits suicide in India.”

“Under the BJP rule, most of the farmers are forced to leave farming and become wage labourers and the people from the lower-income level of the society are becoming weaker day-by-day,” he added.

“Instead of thinking for the welfare of its own people, the Centre is busy protecting the rights of the migrants from the neighbouring countries,” he added.

“The Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) is anti-secular and it should be scrapped immediately,” he further added.

In another rally, Tripura royal scion Pradyot Debbarma appealed the supporters to build the unified struggle against CAA.

Volunteers and members of Debbarma’s newly formed organization- Indigenous Progressive Regional Alliance (TIPRA)- took out a motorcycle rally against CAA. The rally will travel to each and every sixty assembly constituencies of Tripura and sensitise people, especially tribals, against CAA.

In his message on today’s rally, the Royal Scion said “Over 400 motorbikes going village to village across the state and staying over night and spreading the message of the downside of CAA in our state of Tripura. Message will be through street corner meetings and leaflets. It will be a totally youth driven program”.
