Tripura chief minister Biplab Deb has broken his silence on the recent violence that broke out in the state.
Blaming the CPI-M for the recent violence that erupted in the state, Tripura chief minister Biplab Deb said that the opposition party in the state is ‘rattled’ by peace and prosperity in the state.
Biplab Deb said: “For past 3 years, Tripura has seen all round peace & prosperity with radical improvements in law & order situation. Political opposition led by CPM have been rattled by this.”
“In their desperation to regain lost political ground, they attempted to plunge Tripura into lawlessness,” Deb added.

The Tripura CM further said that political violence in the state will not be tolerated.
“I wish to remind the CPM that in our New Tripura such violent political behaviour will not be tolerated by its people,” Deb said.
He added: “It will be my utmost endeavour to identify and punish each miscreant as per law. Peace is and will be a non-negotiable tenet of BJP led government.”
“I have also heard disturbing reports of an attack on the office of a media outlet. Media is fourth pillar of our democracy and should be respected by all. We will identify those behind the attack & ensure speedy justice. I stand with all my media friends in solidarity,” the Tripura chief minister further said.
