On Tuesday, the Chairman of TIPRA, Motha Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma, strongly criticized former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar for his ineffective leadership as the opposition leader over the past five years. In a Facebook post, Pradyot urged Sarkar to remain silent, highlighting his failure to fulfill his responsibilities as the leader of the opposition. Pradyot further emphasized the importance of fair contests and unity within the opposition as the upcoming bye-election in the Dhanpur Assembly Constituency and the approaching Lok Sabha elections draw near.
Expressing his dissatisfaction, Pradyot called out Manik Sarkar, the former Chief Minister and CPIM Politburo member, for his lackluster performance as the leader of the opposition in the past five years.

Pradyot revealed that TIPRA was strategizing to secure a victory in the upcoming bye-election in the Dhanpur Assembly Constituency.

Feeling ignored, Pradyot asserted that the time had come for TIPRA and the opposition to raise their voices and demand attention.
