Bharatiya Janata Party announced Biplab Deb as the party’s candidate for the upcoming Rajya Sabha by-polls from Tripura
AGARTALA, Sep. 10, 2022 (TBINN)
Announcement came hours after former Tripura’s chief minister Biplab Deb was made Haryana’s state in-charge by the Bhartiya Janta Party.
The former chief minister’s popularity had earlier helped B.J.P. to clean-sweep the North-eastern state marking a thumping victory in 2018.
The 2018 victory overtook the Left’s rule of 25 years in Tripura. After taking oath as 10th chief minister of Tripura on March 9, 2018, he stepped down from the state’s chief ministership’s post on May 14 this year. He was then succeeded by Manik Saha who took oath as Tripura’s Chief Minister on May 15, 2022.
