Agartala, 6th March 2024:  In a strategic political move, the main opposition party in Tripura, Tipra Motha, is set to join the BJP-led government ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, according to a senior BJP leader on Wednesday.

The party currently holds 13 MLAs in the 60-member Tripura assembly and is expected to secure two ministerial berths in the coalition.

BJP sources, revealed that the swearing-in date for the Tipra Motha ministers has not been finalized yet.  “The Tipra Motha is poised to become part of the BJP-IPFT coalition government before the Parliamentary elections. The exact date for the ministers’ swearing-in ceremony is yet to be decided,” he stated.

While state government insider sources confirmed that this decision was the result of a series of meetings, with two Tipra Motha MLAs, including Leader of Opposition Animesh Debbarma and Brishaketu Debbarma, likely to be inducted into the state cabinet.

With their inclusion, the total number of ministers in Tripura will reach 11.  He howevere claimed that the official oath-taking ceremony for the two new ministers, Animesh Debbarma and Brishaketu Debbarma from Tipra Motha, is anticipated to occur on March 7.

However, the cabinet reshuffle, originally scheduled for today, was postponed as Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha is reportedly leaving the state this evening, and Pradyot Kishore Manikya Debbarma, the Founder of Tipra Motha, and Royal Scion, missed his flight. As a result, the reshuffle is likely to take place tomorrow, according to the sources.
