Agartala: Denying the charges of financial deprivation to Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (ADC), Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha has claimed in the assembly

that BJP-led government in the state and the centre have been working for the development of indigenous people and holistic development of the region instead of sectarian approach.

The ruling party of Tripura ADC and the principal opposition in the state assembly led by royal scion Pradyot Kishore Debbarman TIPRA Motha has been accusing the state government of not providing adequate funds to ADC and required autonomy under the sixth schedule of the constitution was not conferred yet, which hindered the development of indigenous communities of the state.

Refuting the allegations, Dr Saha told in the assembly on Tuesday, ADC administration has directly received Rs 537.25 crore in 2021-22 and the state government spent Rs 4,401.04 crore through as many as 49 departments under its control. Similarly, in 2022-23, ADC was provided Rs 543 crore directly while the state government spent Rs 4,404 crore through its departments in the ADC areas.

Reacting to the CM’s statement, Leader of the Opposition of TIPRA Motha Animesh Debbarma said, “I have been looking after the finance of TTAADC for a substantial period of time. I have never seen such a flow of funds in the TTAADC. I don’t know the source of the statistic you have shared.”
