Addressing the unveiling ceremony, Pradyot Bikram Kishore Manikya said that he is ready to sacrifice his life to build “Greater Tipraland” for the people and is not willing to compromise. He said “Thansa (Unity) is my strength, there are many pressures from the state and outside the state to compromise. Tiprasa people can protect me. The CRPF and police cannot protect me. I don’t want anything. I want to remove the plight of people.”
Citing the contributions of many including Nagendra Jamatia, Bir Bikram Jamatia and Shyamacharan Tripura, Pradyot said “They have organized movements for the rights of the people on that day.
