Agartala: Days after former health Minister and ruling BJP MLA Sudip Roy Barman said he won’t contest the next state assembly elections on a BJP ticket, he and MLA Ashish Kumar Saha visited different districts in the state.

Starting from the South Tripura districts, the two rebel MLAs visited Dharmanagar in North Tripura district, Kumarghat in Unakoti district and Ambassa in Dhalai district on Thursday.

Speaking with reporters, Roy Barman said that the visit aimed to find ruling party members unable to work under the current government. 

Speaking against BJP, Roy Barman alleged that the violence during the present government is also defeating the scale of the previous government. Roy Barman, a former health minister, was dropped a year after government formation in 2018 due to unknown reasons.

Roy Barman held a meeting with his followers at Dakbangla of the Public Works Department. On Roy Barman’s arrival, several local BJP, CPIM, Trinamool Congress and Congress leaders and activists, also visited the MLA.

Many people in the state are under the impression that Roy Barman will “shock the state politics” even though he did not reveal the reason behind his denial to contest as a BJP candidate in the 2023 assembly elections.

According to the loyalists of Roy Barman, his visit was meant to understand the support he had among the locals before trying to bring the ruling party into disarray.

Among others present at the meeting were Congress leaders Sukha Ranjan Das, Adhir Pal, Partha Chowdhury, Uttam Goswami, Babul Saha, Srivas Chakraborty, Bijoy Krishna Chatterjee and others.
