When asked about talks with TIPRA Motha which emerged as the second largest party in the state, Himanta said, “Tipra Motha has raised certain issues regarding the welfare of the tribal people. Without dividing the state of Tripura we are ready to sit down with them and we want to talk with them and we want to resolve the grievances of tribal people. But we can’t talk of greater Tipraland and Tripura will remain united. So within the greater Tripura, whatever needs to be talked, whatever needs to be addressed both the Central and state government will be ready”.
He further informed that on the 7th the oath-taking ceremony will be held in Meghalaya and on the 8th in Tripura.
“We have invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the oath-taking ceremony”, said Sarma.
