NC Debbarma was the president of the Indigenous Peoples Front of Tripura (IPFT). He is the former Director of All India Radio, Agartala.
IPFT formed an alliance with BJP in Tripura in the 2018 elections. NC Debbarma’s party won 8 out of 9 seats in that election.
NC Debbarma was the oldest minister of Tripura. He has been suffering from various diseases related to old age for the last few years. He took oath as the revenue minister after Manik Saha became the chief minister last year. However, he repeatedly needs to recite the oath. He was involved in several accidents last year.
IPFT was formed in 1990. But it disappeared after a few days. Later, in 2009, this group woke up in a new way. However, now there is a crisis of existence again.
Several party MLAs and leaders have joined Pradyot Manikya’s party Tipramotha and other parties. Congress MLA Sudeep Roy Barman said that the death of NC Devavarma is an irreparable loss to the politics of Tripura. He was a very honorable and benevolent leader.
