The Chairman, Chief Executive Member, Deputy Chief Executive Member, Executive Members and Members of the development council have also worn the traditional attire of their respective community on the day.

The employees were asked to wear their traditional dress on Monday. Tripura is the home of 19 tribes who have their distinct culture, food habit, dialect, life-style and dress besides, majority of Bengali population. However, both the male and female tribal and non-tribal have been wearing western dress mostly in the workplace.

Tripura ADC administration felt a threat to the indigenous culture and tradition, observed a senior officer of ADC. “After royal scion Pradyot Kishore Debbarman’s Tipra Motha took over the charge of ADC in June last year from CPI-M, in the first meeting of the council was discussed the revival Tripura’s culture and tradition in the ADC jurisdiction and propagate the cultural heritage to the rest of the world to fight against the invasion. This is a step towards the goal and we have miles to go,” he stated.

He further clarified that a sizable number of non-tribals have been serving under ADC administration and by this order; they are free to wear traditional Bengali dress (Dhuri-Punjabi or Sharee) or can choose any of the attires belong to any tribe but, discouraged wearing western dress at least on Monday to uphold the dignity and pride of the own culture and tradition of Tripura.
