“During the tenure of Biplab Kumar Deb as the Chief Minister of Tripura, programs were announced to visit different districts of the state. According to the rules, the present Chief Minister is supposed to be present at these programs, but it is alleged that Biplab Kumar Deb is still attending as the chief guest” alleged former Minister of Biplab Deb cabinet and now Congress leader Sudip Roy Burman.
He made the allegation in a press conference at the Tripura Pradesh Congress building on Sunday.
Besides, he said that now that Biplab Kumar Deb is a MLA, but still government notes are being sent to the Chief Secretary of the State and the Director General of Police in various districts to implement government programs by Deb.
Even Sudip Roy Barman presented the evidence of the government note to the journalists present in the press conference as proof of his claim.
This is not the end, he said, adding that the notes also mention that the ruling party’s programs are being carried out at the government’s expense.
Sudip Roy Burman’s question: Where the present Chief Minister is supposed to be present, does the presence of the former Chief Minister mean that the one who is in charge now is a puppet?
All the activities are being conducted under the direction of the former Chief Minister. I will file a public interest litigation in the Tripura High Court on these issues. Besides, we will send a letter to the Chief Secretary of the state in this regard” said Roy Barman.
He also made it clear that he would not allow government money and especially people’s tax money to be wasted in this way.
“If it continues like this, then the Biplab will be able to fall into the legal trap in the coming days” said Sudip Roy Barman.
