No prosperity in hilly ADC areas, villagers in deprivation.
Ampi: Apr 01: The fate of the people of hilly areas of Tripura have not changed even under the BJP rule like the long communist-led Left regime. After the formation of the ADC areas, the hilly habitations of the indigenous people of Tripura have been under the control of the Communists since 1985. But in the hilly areas, both the rules remain the same. Salka Para, Doctor Singh Para, Bata Para, Ruhida Para, Gandek etc Reang, Kaipeng and Molsom dominated habitations under Ampi nagar RD block are the worst victims in this Hera era. Gandek Para is suffering for drinking water facility and dilapidated road connectivity for years. Salka Para has no water management. The box culvert of Salka Para had been collapsed many years ago, no initiative for preparing. Another box culvert collapsed infront of Agape English Medium School in Gamaku where school children are facing problem in every day. Due to dilapidated road condition in Bata Para, Doctor Singh Para the Reang villagers are always in troubles. A large number of poor indigenous people are living in broken and damaged thatches in Salka Para, Bata Para, Doctor Singh Para and other backwards areas in Gumati district. No IAY houses have been provided them till the date. Allegedly, the double-engine Tripura government has not been able to do much for the development of the ADC areas, even though the ruling party of Tripura has been in power since 2018. When the government was formed, the BJP IPFT promised to make Tripura a diamond state with a change in the fate of the people of the hilly areas of Tripura. But even though the BJP coalition government came to power with a huge majority, the fate of the people has not changed at all. Every hilly area is in deprivation of govt. amenities. In 2018, the left era came to an end and the diamond era started under the leadership of BJP. But allegations have surfaced that today the people of the hilly areas are becoming more deprived and oppressed in the diamond kingdom. Party leaders visit those deprived areas just before the election and motivate the innocent indigenous villagers by stating all false hopes & assurance; after coming into power they forget them very shortly. Complaints, despite the change of government, the plight of the people in the hilly areas remains the same as it was before. There is no change in the hope of improving the living standards of the helpless and destitute people in the hilly & mountainous areas. Complaints have been made in the face of ADC vote, Achchedin and Bikash, Bam and Hira are all nothing but fiction. The people of the hilly areas are also hearing the promise of development in the face of this year’s ADC election.
