Agartala, Feb 25 (PTI) Tipra Motha supremo Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma accompanied by party leaders, legislators and ordinary members will begin a fast-unto-death stir in Tripura from February 28 demanding a permanent constitutional solution to the problem of indigenous (Tiprasa) people, a senior leader said on Sunday.

The announcement comes a day after Debbarma, apparently upset over the delay in finding a solution to the problem of indigenous people, threatened to launch a fast-unto-death movement from Wednesday.

Hrangkhawl emphasised the citizens' right to stage peaceful demonstrations to safeguard their rights and expressed curiosity about the response from the Centre regarding their demand.

He said despite a year of discussions with both the Centre and the state government, no positive outcomes have been achieved.

BJP state president Rajib Bhattacharjee downplayed the significance of the agitation, stating that it poses no challenge to either the party or the government.

He highlighted the development initiatives under the "double-engine government" and expressed confidence in securing further success in the upcoming parliamentary elections.
