Who is Manik Saha, the new chief minister of Tripura | India News

NEW DELHI: Tripura BJP president Manik Saha will replace Biplab Kumar Deb as the chief minister of the northeastern state.
Saha was named as the leader of the BJP legislature party on Saturday after Deb resigned as the chief minister just a year ahead of the state elections.
The timing of Deb’s resignation will put the spotlight on Saha, who will have a tough job leading the party into the elections in 2023 after assuming the top post.
Who is Manik Saha?
A dentist by profession, Saha had won the lone Rajya Sabha seat from Tripura earlier this year.
Saha, who quit the Congress and joined the BJP in 2016, was made the party’s state president in 2020.
He had replaced Biplab Kumar Deb who had led the saffron party to a resounding victory in 2018, ending a 25-year-old Communist rule.
He is also the president of the Tripura Cricket Association. Before he joined mainstream politics, Saha used to teach in Tripura Medical College located at Hapania.
