Manik Saha Takes Oath as New Tripura Chief Minister- Current Affairs 2022

Manik Saha took oath as the new Chief Minister of Tripura at the Raj Bhawan in Agartala on May 15, 2022. Saha appointed as BJP’s Legislative party leader and Tripura’s CM-designate on May 14, hours after Biplab Kumar Deb resigned from the top post.

Biplab Kumar Deb was the BJP’s first Chief Minister in Tripura. He was appointed to the role after BJP’s historic victory in the state in the 2018 Assembly Elections, ending the 25-year Communist rule in the state.
