Biplab Deb will take oath as Chief Minister Friday

Biplab Kumar Deb, the new chief minister, was sworn in along with eight other ministers at the Assam Rifles ground in Agartala.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is in Agartala for the swearing-in ceremony of Biplab Deb as Chief Minister of the north-eastern state, on Friday, said the Opposition in the state may have "experience" but we (BJP) are "enthusiastic" and "ambitious". "The Bangladesh prime minister called me over phone and congratulated me", Deb told reporters here.

Paulomi Sen, a doctor at the Tripura Medical College, said, "The young people are excited about the new government".

"The Prime Minister and home minister attended the swearing in ceremony along with BJP president Amit Shah but unfortunately none of them uttered a single word against post poll violence perpetrated by their party supporters".

Outgoing Tripura chief minister Manik Sarkar also attended the event.
