Members of the Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT), an ally of the BJP, forced a road blockade in the state’s Khowai district yesterday, demanding the appointment of a new chairman of the Lefunga block, in West Tripura district.

Members of the IPFT staged vehement protests in the state’s Lembchhara area while the Lefunga block office was shut down. The road blockade has been a major obstacle to the movement of vehicular traffic in the area.

The protest is slated to continue until local MLA and Law Minister Ratan Lal meets the protesters and reaches a settlement.
