BJP’s Biplab Deb to take oath as Tripura Chief Minister today
Author: Desk March 9, 2018
Biplab Deb will be sworn in as the Chief Minister of Tripura at the Assam Rifles ground in Agartala on Friday – an event that would usher in the first BJP government in the northeastern state.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah and chief ministers of some BJP-ruled states in the northeastern region would be present at the swearing-in ceremony.
The BJP-Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura combine swept to power in the state last week, ending 25 years of uninterrupted rule of the CPI(M)-led Left Front.
The BJP had bagged 35 seats and the IPFT eight in the 60-member House.
