We have called a 12-hour strike across Tripura on July 19 against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s conspiracy to disturb peace in Tripura.

Talks between the state government and IPFT failed on Sunday as the outfit refused to withdraw its road and rail blockade at Baramura hill range, about 30 km from Agartala. "We also oppose the silence of the government about the blockade, which is creating inconveniences to common people", state Congress president, Birajit Sinha told newspersons.

BJP-led central government remained completely inactive while a tribal party stopped plying of vehicles through a crucial national highway and obstructed solitary railway line. The prices of essential goods have risen due to the blockade. Meanwhile, Opposition Congress has called a dawn-to-dusk bandh in the state on Wednesday alleging the government's failure to withdraw the blockade of IPFT.

The BJP on Tuesday gheraoed Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar and other ministers' residences demanding removal of road and rail blocks put up for over a week by a tribal party demanding a separate state, police said.
