Chief Minister of Tripura Biplab Deb has resigned from his post this afternoon. He submitted his resignation letter to Governor Satyadev Narayan Arya.
Deb was in the national capital yesterday and returned this morning.
According to reports, BJP legislative party will meet shortly to pick a new leader.
Deb became the chief minister of the state after the BJP won the 2018 Tripura polls, ending the 25-year-long rule of the Left Front government.
