A CLARION CALL
You are perhaps well aware that the Government of Tripura have shifted the Tripura State Museum from the old location of Post Office Chowmohani to Ujjayanta Royal Palace recently. The Govt. of Tripura have also decided the formal innaugaration of the State Museum on the 25th of September, 2013 and Shri Hamid M. Ansari, the Hon’ble Vice President of India will innaugarate the Museum.
You will be surprised to note that the Museum has shifted to Royal Palace with the name as ‘Tripura State Museum’ only. It is noteworthy to mention that the Ujjayanta Palace is directly associated with the centuries old history of the royal kingdom and the cultural heritage of the people of Tripura, right from its initial construction by Maharaja Radha Kishore Manikya during the period 1898-1901. The people of Tripura of all walks of life, irrespective of caste, creed & religion and the different political ideologies highly respect and is proud of as their prime cultural heritage. But surprisingly the ruling present Govt. of Tripura have totally ignored and undermined to recognise the very sentiment and emotion of the whole population of Tripura and thereby naming the Museum simply as Tripura State Museum without keeping any reference of the glorious Ujjayanta Palace.
It is the need of the hour to rise to the occasion and to approach to the Govt. of Tripura for re-consideration of the naming of the Museum as Tripura State Ujjayanta Museum in place of Tripura State Museum.
With the sole objective to appraise to the State Govt, a common forum has been constituted with the representatives of Civil Society to raise a collective voice for these noble and emotional issue of the people of Tripura and will organise a General Mass Gathering at Agartala to appraise to the State Govt. for consideration of renaming of the Museum.
Furthermore in commemoration of formal innaugaration of the museum, a proposal will also be put forward to the Govt. of Tripura for installation of a full Statue of Maharaja Radha Kishore Manikya- the builder of the Ujjayanta Palace.
