Tripura’s Chief Minister, Manik Saha, has revealed that the central government has sanctioned a whopping Rs 100 crore package for the surrendered militants of the Nationalist Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT). This move comes as part of the government’s ongoing efforts to promote peace and stability in the region.

The announcement was made by Chief Minister Saha during a press conference held in Agartala, the capital city of Tripura. He highlighted the importance of providing support and rehabilitation opportunities to the surrendered militants to help them reintegrate into mainstream society.

The Rs 100 crore package is aimed at addressing various aspects of the surrendered militants’ welfare, including livelihood support, skill development training, education, healthcare, and housing. This initiative reflects the government’s commitment to ensuring the well-being and socio-economic upliftment of former militants who have chosen the path of peace and reconciliation.

Chief Minister Saha expressed gratitude to the central government for its support and emphasized the need for continued collaboration between the state and central authorities to effectively address the challenges posed by insurgency and extremism in the region. He underscored the importance of constructive engagement and dialogue in resolving long-standing issues and fostering lasting peace and development.

The announcement has been welcomed by various stakeholders, including civil society organizations, political leaders, and local residents, who view it as a positive step towards promoting reconciliation and fostering a conducive environment for sustainable development in Tripura.

The NLFT, a militant outfit active in Tripura, has been involved in various insurgent activities, including attacks on security forces and civilians. However, in recent years, several militants have surrendered to the authorities as part of the government’s rehabilitation and surrender policy.

The sanctioning of Rs 100 crore for surrendered militants underscores the government’s commitment to addressing the root causes of militancy and extremism by offering a path to rehabilitation and mainstream integration. It is hoped that such initiatives will contribute to lasting peace, stability, and prosperity in Tripura, paving the way for progress and development in the state.
