Manik Saha appointed as new Chief Minister of Tripura, took oath at Raj Bhavan




Agartala: A day after BJP leader Biplab Kumar Deb resigned from the post of Tripura Chief Minister, party’s state president Manik Saha is set to take oath as the next chief minister of the state in a short span of time today. Meanwhile, Manik has left his residence for the Raj Bhavan for the swearing-in ceremony. Hours after Deb’s resignation, 69-year-old Dr Saha was named as the leader of the BJP Legislature Party. He will take oath as the 11th Chief Minister of Tripura. Along with him, his cabinet ministers will also take oath today.
Saha, who has been chosen by the BJP as the new Chief Minister of Tripura, is also a party MP from the Rajya Sabha. The BJP will expect its new CM to lead the party to victory in the assembly elections amid a multi-cornered contest in the northeastern state. Meanwhile, Trinamool Congress is also trying to emerge as a major player. At the same time, the people of the state are surprised by this sudden political upheaval.
Saha left the Congress and joined the BJP in 2016. He was made the party chief in 2020 and was elected to the Rajya Sabha in March this year itself. Biplab Kumar Deb, the second and former CM, was sworn in as the first Chief Minister of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Tripura in 2018, ending the 25-year rule of the Communist Party of India in the state.
