AGARTALA, Nov 28: Ganmukti Parishad (GMP), CPI(M)’s tribal
wing in Tripura, has strongly opposed RSS-backed organisation
Janajati Suraksha Manch’s proposed rally here on December 25

demanding withdrawal of benefits enjoyed by those Scheduled
Tribe (ST) people who converted to Christianity.
The agenda of the rally seeking withdrawal of ST status to
tribals who converted to Christianity is nothing but a communal
appeal, GMP state president Naresh Jamatia said at a press
conference here on Monday.
Claiming that reservation was not given on the basis of religion,
the former minister said it will be a suicidal step if the benefit is
withdrawn.
“The GMP fought the outlawed National Liberation Front of
Tripura (NLFT) which had banned Durga puja and Laxmi puja
celebrations in the state’s tribal belt during the 90’s. The
organisation will continue to uphold the values of secularism”,
he said.
On Manipur, Jamatia said that the people of the neighbouring
state have been suffering the brunt of communal polarisation
as communal strife continues there for more than six months.
