Jitendra Choudhury has been elected the CPIM council leader in Tripura . Apart from this, Shyamal Chakraborty has been elected as the deputy leader and Nirmal Biswas as the Chief Whip.
After the oath-taking ceremony, they were unanimously elected in the meeting of the CPIM parliamentary committee.
The first meeting of the parliamentary committee was held at CPIM Tripura state office at noon on Thursday.
CPIM politburo member and former chief minister Manik Sarkar and state secretariat members and former ministers Tapan Chakraborty and Ratan Bhowmik were present in that meeting besides the newly elected 11 MLAs.
Jitendra Choudhury and Shyamal Chakraborty were unanimously elected as the leader and deputy leader of the parliamentary council respectively in this meeting. Nirmal Biswas will play the role of chief whip.
Incidentally, Tipra Matha has a majority as the main opposition party in the Tripura Legislative Assembly. Pradyot Kishore’s party won 13 seats. Then CPM won 11 seats and came second in the assembly elections. Congress won only three seats.
As a result, the possibility of Tipra Matha getting the status of the main opposition party in the assembly is strong.
However, if the Left Front and Congress announce an alliance, the Left Front will become the main opposition party in terms of numbers.
As a result, intense discussions have started on who will be the leader of the opposition.
