Agartala: The opposition today stalled
proceedings in the Tripura Assembly over Chief Minister Manik
Sarkar`s comment about alleged nexus between outlawed militant
groups and Indigenous Nationalist Party of Tripura.

The Leader of the Opposition from Congress party Ratan Lal
Nath raised the issue when the House began at 11 am and
demanded that Sarkar would have to furnish proof that INPT has
nexus with outlawed groups or render an apology in the House.

The Chief Minister allegedly made this statement

The members of the treasury bench started shouting and
thumping desks and opposition members also did the same
throwing the House into a pandemonium.

Speaker Ramendra Chandra Debnath then adjourned the House
for 10 minutes and when the House re-assembled the same
situation prevailed and it was adjourned again.

When the House re-assembled for the third time the chaos
continued, finally the Speaker adjourned the House for the
whole day, however, the Chief Minister remained silent.

Speaking to the reporters later, opposition leader Ratan
Lal Nath alleged that the ruling CPM has been abetting the
outlawed groups to take mileage before Tripura Tribal Areas
Autonomous District Council elections scheduled to be held in
March next year.
