Bringing an end to 25-year-rule of the Communist Party of India in Tripura, Bhartiya Janta Party state president Biplab Kumar Deb took oath as the Chief Minister of Tripura on Friday.

Jishnu Dev Burman also took oath the Deputy Chief Minister of Tripura.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP National General Secretary Ram Madhav and other leaders of the BJP-ruled states attended the swearing-in ceremony.

Governor Tathagata Roy administered the oath.

Earlier in the day BJP leader Ram Madhav and Biplab Kumar Deb visited outgoing Chief Minister Manik Sarkar to invite him to the swearing-in ceremony.

On Wednesday Union Minister Nitin Gadkari announced Deb as the Chief Minister ofTripura while Jishnu Kumar Deb as the Deputy Chief Minister.

The BJP won 35 of the 59 seats that went to polls in Tripura, ousting the CPI(M) which won only in 17 assembly constituencies. (ANI)
