Biplab Kumar Deb resigns as Tripura CM

Agartala: Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb resigned from his post on Saturday.

He quit from his position nearly eight months before the assembly polls in the state.

Deb, accompanied by Union Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change Bhupender Yadav, went to the Raj Bhavan here and handed over his resignation letter to Governor Satyadeo Narain Arya.

"I hereby tender my resignation from the post of Chief Minister, Tripura, with effect from 14.5.2022," Deb said in the one-line resignation letter.

Later, Deb said that he put in his papers at the instruction of the party leadership.

"My party has asked me to resign," he said.

The reason behind taking the decision is not known yet.

Deb took oath in Tripura in 2018 after the Bharatiya Janata Party registered a thumping victory in the assembly polls.
