Agartala: Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb said on Saturday that he has submitted his resignation to Governor SN Arya.

Biplab Deb’s resignation comes a day after his meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah and less than a year before the Assembly elections in Tripura.

After announcing his resignation, he said, “The party wants me to work to strengthen the organisation.”

BJP has sent Union Ministers Bhupendra Yadav and party general secretary Vinod Tawde as Central observers to the state to elect a new CM.

A meeting of the legislative party has been scheduled for 5 pm to pick a new leader.

Demands for his resignation had been going on for past some time. The Opposition had been demanding that he step down for his government’s alleged failure to maintain law and order in the state.
