Left Front sweeps village committee polls

Agartala: The ruling Left Front emerged victorious in the village committee elections in Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council by winning 473 of the 527 village committees.

The Congress and its ally the Indigenous Nationalist Party of Tripura (INPT), a tribal party, bagged 56 committees which is better than the last village committee elections held in 2005 when they had secured 23 village committees. The other committees were won by independents.

The tribal council which constitute two-third of the State territory is home to the tribals that form one-third of the State's population.

It came into being in 1985 under the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution to provide more autonomy to the backward tribals and facilitate economic development in the area. CPI (M) State secretary Bijan Dhar said it was a people's mandate for peace, development and good governance. –PTI
