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.
