Agartala (Tripura), India, May 15, : Manik Saha, the Chief Minister of Tripura today, said there is no ideological opposition for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the state, and that the state will continue with the development issue of PM Modi and the BJP.We will also enhance law and order in the region, as well as addressing the needs of the people of Tripura.We have no political means to tackle him.He took oath as state's chief minister on Sunday at Raj Bhawan in Agartala.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) replaced Biplab Kumar Deb as the new Chief Minister of Tripura, a year ahead of the Assembly elections, by replacing him with Saha as the new Chief Minister.The old tactic was to beat anti-incumbency by reinventing the landscape of a poll-bound state.Although the face of Uttarakhand was updated ahead of the elections, Gujarat is set to host the year-end elections.Next year, Tripura and Karnataka will host elections.The BJP chiefs in Tripura were surprised by Manik Saha's appointment as chief minister, since he was elected to the Rajya Sabha just two months earlier than any other candidate.

The assembly elections in the state are likely to take place in March next year, and Saha, a dental surgeon, is expected to lead the group in the Assembly polls, which takes place in a multi-cornered region in the northeastern state where the Trinamool Congress is also hoping to emerge as a key player.Saha left the party in 2016 and joined the BJP.Deb was the party chief in 2020 and elected to the Rajya Sabha in March this year.Deb's resignation to State Governor Satyadeo Narain Arya marked his reelection as Tripura's first Chief Minister, ending the Communist Party of India's 25-year tenure.
