Biplab Deb takes oath as Tripura CM

The Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb said the first meeting of the council of ministers chose to form an expert committee regarding implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations for the state government employees.

BJP Tripura in-charge Sunil Deodhar today urged newly sworn-in Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb to get the septic tanks of all ministers' quarters cleaned before these are occupied, as skeletons could be hidden there.

In response, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina assured him of Bangladesh's cooperation. Shah wished accomplishment to Deb and his bureau associates and said the new government would satisfy the desires of the people."Tripura will be transformed into a model state".

On Wednesday Union Minister Nitin Gadkari announced Deb as the Chief Minister of Tripura while Jishnu Kumar Deb as the Deputy Chief Minister.

Addressing a press meet held today at the head office of BJP, Manipur Pradesh located at Nityaipat Chuthek, Saratkumar said that leaders and workers of BJP, Manipur Pradesh stayed in Tripura and held intensified election rallies and campaigns in the Meitei and Manipuri Bishnupriya dominated areas ahead of the Assembly Election. "All disruptive activities in the state would be handled firmly; development and positive activities of the government would automatically curb violence", said Deb.

Deb was administered by the state's Governor Tathagata Roy. The oath ceremony was attended by prime minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit shah among others.

Modi said that there are only a few victories that will be recalled and cited as examples for ages, and winning Tripura by defeating the Left, after its 25-year incumbent rule, will be one such event.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was present at the oath-taking ceremony. Deb became the first BJP chief minister of the state. "We will serve every citizen of Tripura", he added.

However, members of the Left front have made a decision to boycott the ceremony.

Polling to the Charilam seat was postponed following the death of CPI (M) candidate Ramendra Narayan Debbarma, a week before the February 18 elections in the state.
