Food crisis looms large in Tripura, but the media will not report

A noteworthy food crisis is heading towards Tripura State because of the woeful condition of the solitary national roadway – NH-44 – that connects Agartala to rest of the nation, due to heavy downpours. State food and civil supply special secretary S Bandopadhyaya said in Agartala that the Tripura government has asked for the Assam government to earnestly repair the affected routes and ensure plying of trucks and oil tankers soon. The state, however, affirmed of having a food-grain stock for the following 70 days. Tripura's sustenance emergency appears to be disregarded by the Central Government and National media. TNT reports why Tripura has always been ignored by both:

  1. The state of Tripura has a population of 40 lakhs. It is therefore, in light of the fact that it is little and cornered.
  1. The media is nauseous about cheering for a state which for 32 of the previous 37 years has been under Left Front tenet.
  1. In Tripura, the basic need brought for the CM's family were made on a proportion card which is again very 'uninteresting' for the media.
  1. In effective execution of plans, the state never had parallels. Facilities, schools, anganwadi, baby and mother consideration, power dissemination and, most importantly, building streets, interfacing the remotest territories. The majority of this has made an air for general peacefulness.
