The Home Minister said that Modi government has worked to end struggle of people by talking to them through 11 different agreements related to borders, identity, language and culture.
He said that with today’s agreement, Tripura has moved forward to become a dispute-free Tripura. Now the people of Tripura will not have to struggle for their rights and the Government of India will come forward to develop a system which will protect rights of all.
Under the pact, it was agreed to amicably resolve all issues of indigenous people of Tripura relating to history, land and political rights, economic development, identity, culture and language.
Moreover, it was agreed to constitute a Joint Working Group/Committee to work out and implement the mutually agreed points on all the above mentioned issues in a time-bound manner to ensure an honourable solution.
