The meeting’s outcome brings hope to the indigenous communities in Tripura, as it signifies an open channel of communication between IPFT and the MHA. The delegates expressed their gratitude for AK Mishra’s patient hearing and genuine interest in understanding their perspective.
As the deliberations come to a close, both parties agreed to continue the dialogue in the coming days to explore viable solutions that align with the interests of all stakeholders. The prospect of a brighter future for the indigenous communities of Tripura hangs in the balance, and the relentless efforts of IPFT signify a determined quest for justice and empowerment.
