Tripura: Biplab Deb, accompanied by Union minister Bhupendra Yadav, submitted his resignation as CM to the Governor on May 14.

In a big surprise ahead of state elections next year, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb submitted his resignation to the Governor on May 14. Deb was accompanied by Union minister and senior BJP leader Bhupender Yadav.
