TRIPURA Tackling Terrorism Politically (By a Special Correspondent) THE recent spurt in insurgent activities of the Tripura National Volunteers (TNV) led by Bi- joy Hrankhal seems to be a calculated political move against the Left Front government led by the CPI(M). Ambushes, raids and murders were perpetrated by TNV even before the Pan- chayat elections held in June this year. But the polls could not be disrupted by such terrorising tactics.
