The chief minister on Wednesday tweeted that Tripura has vaccinated 92 per cent of the people above 45 years with the first dose and is at the first position in India.
Speaking to reporters while visiting COVID care facilities in the Sepahijala district, Deb said such a decision is taken when healthcare experts and the administration collectively feel the necessity.
The health department has taken a slew of steps to make sure sufficient supply of oxygen to all the districts and sub-divisional hospitals, the CM said.
I have been tested positive for Covid-19. I have isolated myself at home as per the advice of doctors. I request everyone to please follow all the covid appropriate behaviour and stay safe, he said.
Tripura Chief Minister and BJP leader Biplab Kumar Deb is credited with dethroning the CPM from the North East state where it had ruled for 25 years.
Biplab Kumar Deb, who is in Kerala campaigning for the NDA, said if in Tripura people chose BJP the same could happen in Kerala too.
Biplab Kumar Deb was addressing the party workers at an event in the state capital of Tripura.
Deb cancelled the mandate event he had fixed on December 13 following intervention of BJP president J P Nadda, state observer Vinod Sonkar and the state ministers and BJP reposing faith in him.
The chief minister had planned a public meeting on December 13 in a show of strength in the face of mounting dissension against his “style of functioning” from a section of state legislators.
Deb said that he would hold a meeting in the Swami Vivekanda Maidan, a stadium in the state capital, on December 13 and ask people whether they want him to continue as the chief minister.
The groups expressed apprehension that the settlement of such a large number of the refugees, who originally hail from neighbouring Mizoram, in their areas would cause social imbalance.
The BJP-Indigenous Peoples Front of Tripura government was sworn in on March 9 last year after ending the 25-years rule of the Left Front government.
Clarifying his stance, he said that civil engineers should take up civil services as they have experience about administration.
Talking about his latest remark, Deb said he had made it to encourage entrepreneurship and traditional economy and to preserve culture.
In Hindu mythology, when the ‘shishya’ (disciple) is arrogant towards his guru, he is bound to falter. This is what BJP leaders in Tripura feel about Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb.
