Terrorism waning in Tripura: Chief Minister

india Updated: Aug 15, 2009 15:46 IST

Saying that terrorism was on the wane in Tripura, Chief Minister Manik Sarkar on Saturday urged the separatists to shun violence and support the government in developing the region.

"Terrorism seems to be in its last legs in Tripura which bodes well for faster development in this state," he said after unfurling the national flag at the Assam Rifles ground in Agartala.

"We all must reiterate our resolve to banish militancy with courage, vigour and determination and share the commitment of our government to bring the fruits of development to every home of the state," Sarkar said.

People came out in large numbers to participate in the Independence Day celebrations, defying the boycott call by militant group Tripura People's Democratic Front (TPDF), the so-called political wing of the banned All Tripura Tiger Force (ATTF).
