‘Tipraland’ and ‘Greater Tipraland’? Explained!

Tipraland

Context:

Tipraland’ was a demand of the Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT), which is now in power in Tripura in alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party. 

  • It was a political call for the creation of a separate state for indigenous groups.
Analysis
  • The concept of Greater Tipraland does not restrict simply to the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) areas. 
  • It demands that every indigenous area or village which is today outside the TTAADC be included in Greater Tipraland.
  • ‘Greater Tipraland’ has been a political demand on the lines of ‘Greater Nagalim’ and seeks to – in a democratic manner – cater to the aspirations of Tripuris in Mamit of Mizoram, Kachar and Hailakandi in Assam, and even in Khagrachari, Bandarban, and Chittagong of Bangladesh.
  • Tripuris are 19 indigenous clans, most of whom live in the TTAADC areas which make up two-thirds of the state’s geographical area.
