Tripura Congress president resigns from his post, writes about being free of ‘backstabbing colleagues and high-command’s order’

Pradyot has extended his support for an Assam-like NRC update in Tripura to weed out illegal immigrants. Congress' secretary in-charge of Northeastern states Luizinho Faleiro was against Pradyot over the issue.

Kirit Pradyot Manikya DebBarma, the head of the erstwhile reigning dynasty of Tripura and the president of Tripura Congress has resigned from his post.

Taking to Twitter, Pradyot shared a note where he wrote that he is looking forward to spending his days without listening to criminals, back-stabbing colleagues and without having to take the High-command’s order to accommodate corrupt people in high positions.

The 41-year-old leader has replied to many tweets and querries by his party colleagues and well-wishers. He has, however, clarified that he is not joining the BJP and has emphasised that he has left the Congress after fighting till the last and losing.

He has also stated that there is no space for him in the party anymore. His note speaks about differences with colleagues and the corrupt practice of getting people into a high position on the high command’s order. He has stated that his health and life were being affected in Congress.

It is notable here that Pradyot reportedly had differences with Congress’ secretary in-charge of Northeastern states Luizinho Faleiro over NRC update in Tripura. While Pradyot had supported a petition over NRC update in Tripura, filed in Supreme Court by INPT & Tripura People’s Front (TPF), Luizinho Faleiro has reportedly been against Pradyot’s support. In the last week, there were speculations that Pradyot may soon leave the party.

The petition has requested an Assam-like NRC update to be implemented in Tripura. Many in Congress have been opposed to Pradyot’s support for it. A week ago, Pradyot had tweeted that he had tried his best to put a stop to corrupt practices in Tripura Congress and has always opposed to criminals running the party.
