Political activity has increased in the northeastern state of Tripura. Chief Minister Biplab Deb has given a big statement. He has said that he will ask people next week whether he should remain Chief Minister or not? During the visit of BJP’s newly appointed National Secretary and Tripura’s Central Supervisor Vinod Kumar Sonkar, people raised slogans ‘Biplab Hatao, BJP Bachao’. Now Biplab Deb’s response has come.
The Chief Minister said in the press conference, “I will go to Vivekananda Maidan on December 13 and ask the people of Tripura whether I should remain Chief Minister or not.” He said that if the public does not support him, then he will inform the party high command about this. He said, “I appeal to the people that they reached the Vivekananda Maidan on 13 December. The decision of the people will be final for me.”
BJP Tripura in-charge Vinod Sonkar claimed that everything is going well in the ruling party of the state. He said that both me and CM have talked to the national president of the party. CM should serve the people of Tripura, if there is any issue, the party will look into it.
All is not well in Tripura BJP, signs of this are also showing. In October itself, disgruntled MLAs of Tripura BJP met Bharatiya Janata Party President JP Nadda. They also expressed concern with Nadda about the bad government in the state. In Tripura, there is a BJP and IPFT coalition government headed by Chief Minister Biplab Deb.
In Tripura, Bharatiya Janata Party MLAs have opened a front against the CM. A group of BJP MLAs headed by Sudeep Rai Burman had recently met the central leaders and complained to the Chief Minister.
Roy Burman joined BJP from Congress just before Tripura elections was considered as a strong contender for the post of Chief Minister, but Biplab Deb was replaced as Chief Minister. Some angry Tripura MLAs and party leaders also met the chairman of the North-East Democratic Alliance and Assam Chief Minister Hemant Vishwa Sharma, the issue was also discussed with them. Some disgruntled BJP MLAs are angry with the Chief Minister’s functioning and have been openly criticizing him.
