AGARTALA, Aug 27: The Twipra Students Federation (TSF), a
powerful tribal students’ organisation in Tripura has called for a
12-hour statewide bandh on Monday demanding the
introduction of Kokborok in Roman script and passage of the
125th Constitutional Amendment Bill.
The TSF has been organizing a movement for the introduction
of Kokborok in Roman script and passing of the 125th
Constitutional Amendment Bill for the past few months and it
has also organised a march to Raj Bhavan on the same demand.
“Since we have failed to see any visible move by the
government to our demand, the TSF has called a statewide 12-
hour bandh demanding Kokborok in Roman script on Monday
(September, 28) and passing of the 125th Constitutional
Amendment Bill”, said TSF president Samrat Debbarma during a
press conference on Saturday.
The Constitution 125th Bill was introduced on February 6 in the
year 2019 in Rajya Sabha. It was tabled by the then Home
Minister, Rajnath Singh. The bill, broadly, seeks to amend the
Article on Finance Commission and the 6th Schedule of the
Constitution applicable to four northeastern states – Assam,
Meghalaya, Mizoram and Tripura.
In the 2023 Assembly elections, the TSF extended support to
Tipra Motha which won 13 seats in the 60-member Assembly.
