Constitution of The National Liberation Front Of Tripura


Twipra State was ruled by as many as hundred and eighty-four kings of the indigenous Borok people of the state since the time immemorial. It means that Twipra was a Princely, Independent and Peaceful state Which had a self-rule, reliancy and possessed a glorious history prior to its occupation forcefully by the subjugation policy of imperialist Hindustani(India) on October 15, 1949. From that period with down of India's independence the sun set has begun on the glorious independent state of Twipra.

The indigenous people know as Borok have been completely marginalised by the continuing influx of immigration of foreign nationals and socio-politico and economically we are exploited, oppressed and suppressed and is facing from the identity crisis due to the menacing chauvinism, imperialism of the so-called Aryan descendants of Hindustan(India). There is a threat to our language, customs and religious initiating culture genocide through the process of religions, language and culture conversion to minimize us and swallow up wholly. Violation of the basic Human Rights occurs with regular frequency through state agency, Indian security force and the like. And also the Govt. of India imposed with a plethora of draconian acts such as the Armed Forces Act, 1958 Terrorist and Disruptive Activities(Preventive) Act(TADA), the National Security Act(NSA) on to the innocent indigenous Borok people of Twipra as well as the south east Himalayan entire region in order to prevent insurgent outfit. These are the regular practise of imperialist Hindustan(India) to uproot indigenous people from their ancestral home land. In this way, all the power in political and economic distinctness were craftfully snatched away from us were by aboriginal Borok people of Twipra has turned to become slavery and losses everything control over their ancestral land.

In this juncture the Borok, the aboriginal ethnic group of Twipra has strongly determinded and binded by solemn promised with self blood to liberate the Borok land Twipra with arm struggle for distinct and independent identity of Borok civilisation and to free from socio politico and economic exploitation, oppression, suppression and neo-colonisation. Assuming to achieved this historic Oath for the national cause some nationalist Borok youth congregated at Ganda Twisa on 12th March. 1989 and formed the National Liberation Front of Twipra(NLFT) and its Armed wing the National Holy Army(NHA) has been revealed on 11th December, 1991 through the arms operation offensive on Twinani outpost' under Udaipur sub-division.

The 'Borok' herein is used in broader sense. From the historical and demographic accounts of the indigenous people of Twipra, it is crystal clear that the indigenous people known as Borok(earlier known as Twipra in Kokborok) are the Tibeto-Burman linguistic family of Mongoloid origin from Central Asia. In a series of successive waves of migration this population stream moved about 3000 B.C. from their original abode to south-east Asia and in course of time they reached to south-east Himalaya region and settled down in different parts of the entire region or abroad accrossing the great Himalaya range. And a group of them settled down at the confluence of river Ganges through the course of Tsangpo(Bramhaputra) river which means the term' TWIPRA' in kokborok terminology of the term 'confluence of water'('TWI' means water 'PRA' means junction or mouth of river) where the Borok people permanently settled and extended their kingdom eastward, southward and westward upper and lower Tsangpo(Bhramaputtra). In the passage of time its geographical area was reduced to the present state of 10,477 sq. km. The Borok,(geographically or territorially known as Twiprasa) the aboriginal ethnic group comprise of Debbarma, Reang, Jamatia, Rupini, Koloi, Uchui, Noatia, Halam, Hrangkhwal, Ranglong, Kaipeng, Twipra, Malsum, Lushai, Murasing, Mog, Bongcher, Choroi, Darlong, Kochesandthe like. And according to having linguistic and cultural affinities the Boros, Chuiyas, Laltung, Sonowals, Dimachas, Rabhas etc. are to be of same ancestor.

The Aims and Objectives of the National Liberation Front of Twipra.

  1. The immediate object of the party is to overthrow imperialism, capitalism and neo-colonialism from the Country with armed struggle for distinct and independent identity of the Borok civilisation of Twipra.

  2. To liberate the Borokland Twipra complete freedom and transform a People's Republic Government with a view to established the true Justice, Liberty, Equality and Fraternity in the state.

  3. With a view to free the Borok Nation from the socio-political and economic exploitation, oppression, suppression and neo-colonisation shall be set up an organisation which through village mobilisation and indoctrination classes inspirit and instill nationalism and socio-politico and economic consciousness among the illiterate, uneducated and ignorant Borok people of Twipra. And for furtherance of the cause of the traditional indigenous culture and beliefs of the people through seminars, discussions, literature, education and other project of public utility.

  4. To send observers or participants delegates to national and international seminars, conferences or training programmes and to improve the channel of communication for National Liberation in alliance with other armed revolutionary organisations of the oppressed aboriginal nationalities of the world through discussion, publication of books and journals and other such media.

  5. To open literacy centres and library at a place where the local committee of the party is located for the purpose of publicity and to assist other organisation recognised by the central committee of the party as socio-religio-cultural organisation in the establishment of such new projects or strengthening existing projects.

  6. To encourage among men/women in setting up trading centre through the social reformation in different places of the country or abroad.

  7. To create funds for the welfare of the masses, especially for the emancipation from the poverty of the Country.

Assuming all these above cited aims and objectives of the party with a view to materialize every efforts for the liberation of Borok civilisation, the Constitution with the spirit and the guide-line of the organisation was adopted in the Constituent Assembly with some omission of the drafted Constitution of the NLFT by Chief Political Advisor Mwchang Japang Debbarma and some inclusion through discussion was produced & approved in the Central Executive meeting on 15th November, 1994.

I do believe and hope the spirit of the Constitution will lead dynamically to every member of the NLFT in a strict and well disciplined way of true revolutionary life and will steer the whole Borok Nation for the National Liberation Movement.

Mwchang B. M. Debbarma.
