18 Jul 2007 - 7:53am | editor
Agartala: Gandhism is catching and fast. This time it is the turn of surrendered militants of National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT-BM) to follow the Gandhism path alleging that the State Government has still not fulfilled their demands. Mantu Koloi alongwith 72 armed cadres had surrendered before security forces in May, 2004 following an agreement with the State Government. But Koloi says that till date the State Government has not taken any steps towards the fulfilment of promises which were made at the time of their surrender.

The former rebel leader said that as such they have been compelled to organize a semi-nude march towards the Governor House on July 25 to apprise Governor DN Sahaya about the non-fulfilment of the promises. The march would commence at
11 AM from the famous Mahatma Gandhi statue at Agartala.

It is also learnt that the State Government has stopped ration money to all the surrendered militants as well.
