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 yesterday.

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.
