Agartala: Tripura’s Chief Minister, Biplab Kumar Deb, stepped down from his post on Saturday. He submitted his resignation to the governor.
“The party is above all. I have worked for the party under the leadership and direction of PM Modi. I have tried to do justice to the people of Tripura as the head of the party’s state unit and as CM. “I have tried to ensure peace, development and to steer the state out of the COVID crisis,” Biplab Kumar Deb said.
Speaking to the media, he added, “Everything has a time frame.” We work in that time frame. “Wherever I am sent, be it CM or some other post, Biplab Deb can fit in everywhere.”
This comes a day after Biplab Kumar Deb met with Union home minister Amit Shah. The decision, according to sources, came from the BJP’s leadership.
The name of the new chief minister will be unveiled soon at a meeting of the BJP’s MLAs. Union minister Bhupender Yadav and BJP general secretary Vinod Tawde have been made observers for the BJP’s legislature party meet.
