SHRI SAMAR CHOUDHURY (TRIPURA WEST): Mr. Chairman, Sir, according to the latest information that I received, since the elections for Thirteenth Lok Sabha was held, A heavily armed the extremist outfits of the banned National Liberation Front and the All Tripura Tiger Force,(ATTF), in Tripura have started a new phase of violent militancy against the innocent common people by mass of killings, lootings, arsoning of the houses, kidnapping with ransom, extortions since the 13th Lok Sabha election in the state had 68 per cent of polling against the terror they tried to execute the Left Front came to power with a historic win. The following accountof the situation which I have collected from Tripura,91 attacks by the extremists killed would give you a picture as to how the situation has worsened since then. In the eleven attacks that took place, during the last three months, in Tripura alone, 82 people killed, 54 people were injured and 88 people were abducted. The extremist outfits have 600 to 700 armed people and they are trained in Bangladesh across the international border with Tripura. The extremist outfits are running nearly thirty to forty extremist camps which are used by not only the Tripura extremists but also the NSCN, the ULFA and other extremist groups of the North East region. That the Central Government has all these facts in their information to the effect that these camps are operated and monitored by the foreign agencies specially ISI agents. These camps are located not only across the border of Tripura but also in other parts of region in the North-East. These 600 to 700 people are armed with sophisticated weapons, like AK-47 and AK-56 enter inside Tripura and commit crimes and terrorise with anti national attacks. To counter this the Central Government has deployed only the CRPF and that is also highly inadequate . It was deployed before the election and before Kargil incident took place. Once the Army had been deployed of three battalions. After the deployment of three Army battalions, and sence of the Assam Rifles, the counter insurgency operation became effective in maintaining peace.

When this was going on, the Central Government decided to shift the Army from there. Some of the Assam Rifles also were taken away. The position now is, only CRPF is taking care of the insurgency problem. Out of 1010 Km. of long border of Tripura 856 Kms. border we have, with Bangladesh. Inadequate BSF has been deployed to protect this long border. One batallion is for 90 Kms. The extremists from Bangladesh camps make their entry inside Tripura through this porous border and operate their liberation struggle. They pose as if they will liberate not only Tripura but the entire North-eastern region. Secession is there slogan ... (Interruptions) Please give me at least five minutes more.

MR. CHAIRMAN : No, it is not possible.

SHRI SAMAR CHOUDHURY : We pray for immediate deployment of Army which was withdrawn from Tripura. Army has to be reinforced and we should be given total protection. The Home Minister is sitting here. I went to him. Three of our hon. Members from Tripura went to him. Under the leadership of Shri Somnath Chatterjee, a team visited Tripura. They came back and requested the Central Government for an immediate action. Not only the Members belonging to Left Front but other Opposition Members also put their signatures on a request drawing the attention of the Home Ministry to look into this matter. The Prime Minister also was requested repeatedly. We went to him with the same request. But till this day no effective step has been taken. We want to know what is going on in the North East? Why tribals are fighting against tribals in the North East? In Mizoram 50,000 to 60,000 Reang people have left their houses and villages for shelter in Tripura come out on street as atrocities are committed against them. A tribal can not believe the other tribal. They have lost confidence to each other. Not only that, even the Santhals, who have been residing in Assam for quite long time, are now being treated as their enemies by the Bodos and vice versa. Same is the case with Chakma tribes in Arunachal Pradesh. In such a situation different section and communities of the tribals cannot the confidence on the State and Centre. I would say that backwardness is the main reason behind it. We approached the Central Government for special development package and democracy to grass root, protection to their identity. The Tripura State Government has repeatedly requested the Central Government for giving some special package for its developmental scheme. The then Prime Minister, Shri Deve Gowda did announce some fund. This announcement from the Prime Minister's office was well taken by the people of Tripura and they had maintained their confidence on the Centre but the funds have not been properly released by the Centre.

17.00 hrs

Every time it is being cut. This is the position. The welfare programmes of Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and backward people are being cut. We want to know from the hon. Prime Minister and the hon. Home Minister what is the policy of the Government to defend our country's sovereignty and integrity. We also want to know what action has been taken to fight these extremists. We want to know whether democratic rights would be given to the common people and backward people in a well planned manner. I demand a statement from the Prime Minister explaining what is the policy of the Government for dealing with this situation.
