Biplab Deb took to Twitter to congratulate his successor and said “Congratulations and best wishes to @DrManikSaha2 ji on being elected as the legislature party leader.

I believe under PM Shri @narendramodi Ji’s vision and leadership Tripura will prosper,” he tweeted.

Taking to Twitter, Union Minister and BJP central observer Bhupender Yadav tweeted in Hindi, “Many congratulations to Shri @DrManikSaha2 ji for being elected the leader of Tripura BJP Legislature Party. I am sure that Tripura will reach new heights of development under the guidance and leadership of respected Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi ji.”

Earlier in the day, Deb said he had resigned to strengthen the base of the party in Tripura.

“To strengthen the base of BJP in the state, I need to work on grassroot level in various sectors. I should work as a common Karyakarta (party worker) rather than being in the position of CM to form BJP govt again in the coming Assembly elections,” he said.

“Party is above all. I am a loyal worker of the BJP. I hope I have done justice to the responsibilities that were given to me — whether it was BJP state president or Tripura chief minister. I have worked for the overall development of Tripura, and to ensure peace for the people of the state,” he added.

“The 2023 election is coming, and the party wants a responsible organiser to take charge of the affairs here. A government can only be formed if the organisation is strong. After the elections, someone will obviously become the chief minister,” he further said.
