The resignation of Biplab Kumar Deb from the Chief Minister’s drew a sharp reaction from the main Opposition Party in Tripura, CPM while leaders of other political parties opined that Deb stepped down as his party understood that BJP would not win in the upcoming Tripura Assembly Polls.
Reacting to Deb’s sudden resignation, CPM State secretary of Tripura, Jitendra Chowdhury said it is a strategic step to divert people's attention from the activities of the 'fascist-like government.
“Changing the Chief Minister less than a year before the Assembly Polls demonstrates the utter weakness of the Government and its organization”, CPM State secretary Jitendra Chowdhury said.
Chowdhury claimed one of the prime reasons that prompted the decision was Government’s failure in fulfilling the pre-poll promises. The Government was anti-people.
