The swearing-in ceremony of the Council of Ministers will be held on May 15 at 11:30 am at Raj Bhavan, Agartala.

Dr Saha, who was chosen by the BJP as the new chief minister of Tripura, is a Rajya Sabha MP and party chief in the state, which will go to polls by March next year.

A professor of dental surgery, Dr Saha will be expected to lead the party to victory in the assembly elections amid a multi-cornered contest in the northeastern state, where the Trinamool Congress is also trying to emerge as a key player.

Hours after Deb’s resignation, 69-year-old Dr Saha was named as the leader of the BJP Legislature Party. He will take oath as the 11th Chief Minister of Tripura.

The sudden political development came as a surprise to the people of the state.

Saha left the Congress and joined the BJP in 2016. He was made the party chief in 2020 and was elected to the Rajya Sabha in March this year.

Meanwhile, Deb has resigned from his post in the fast-moving political developments in the state, where elections will be held early next year. After submitting his resignation to the state governor Satyadev Narayan Arya, he said that he has served the people of the state with all his heart.

Deb was sworn in as the first Chief Minister of the Bharatiya Janata Party in Tripura in 2018, ending the 25-year rule of the Communist Party of India in the state.
