Video: Tripla BJPMLA shatters chairman with announcement of new Prime Minister

The BJP’s appointment of a new Prime Minister of Tripura has offended the MLA of some parties. They said they had not been consulted by party leaders on this issue.

Hours after Tripura’s resignation, Bipurabu Kumardev, the BJP appointed Maniksaha to replace him just one year before the North Eastern parliamentary elections.

Professional dentist Saha, 69, was elected to Rajya Sabha MP last month and is also the head of Tripura BJP.

At a party event where the BJP announced the name of the new Prime Minister, party MLA and state minister Ramprasard Paul can be seen discussing with colleagues. He shouts and then breaks the plastic chair on his floor.

Mr. Paul reportedly appointed Deputy Prime Minister Jishnu Dev Valma, a former member of the Tripla royal family, as the next Prime Minister.
