In Tripura, giving a fillip to peace and development, 88 militants belonging to banned outfit NLFT (Sabir Deb barma faction) surrendered before the Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and Deputy CM Jishnu Debbarma in a function held in Ambassa in Dhalai district.

Earlier on 11th August, a tripartite Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed among the NLFT (SD), Tripura Government and the Central Government. As per the memorandum, NLFT (SD) has agreed to abjure the path of violence, join the mainstream and abide by the Constitution of India.

Welcoming them, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb assured that all the commitment given to them will be fulfilled. He also said that Tripura Government is trying their best for the welfare of tribal people of the state.

CM urged to the diverted youth to join in the mainstream of life. According to PIB statement, "The outfit has agreed to the surrender of its 88 cadres with their weapons. The surrendered cadres will be given surrender benefits as per the Surrender-cum-Rehabilitation Scheme, 2018 of the Ministry of Home Affairs. The State Government of Tripura will help the surrendered cadres in housing, recruitment, education etc. Government of India will consider the proposals of Tripura State Government regarding the economic development of tribal areas of Tripura. ”

On the occasion, CM said The functioning of Governance is moving with new thoughts bringing in innovation in works everywhere. That has resulted in the solution of 42 years long Naga conflict issue. It has given in eloping Article  370 from J&K. A similar exercise has resulted in the surrender of 88 militants resolving to come back to the mainstream of life. 

CM said this is the first time any state government is working without any slogan for development of tribal people of the state. He said we believe in works, not words. Our aim is sabbed Kaa Saath sab ka Vikash.
