Amidst controversy in Tripura after allegations of harassment against a BJP leader Manoj Kanti Deb, the Chief Minister Biplab Deb has come out openly to request to media as well as the citizens to not fall prey to rumours.
In a tweet on his official social media handle, he wrote:
” My Govt. is working in the best interests of 37 lakh people of Tripura.We strive to uphold the distinctive culture & traditions of our beloved state.I request my fellow citizens to not fall prey to any rumours spread by anti-social elements. Spoke to media on this issue.”
It may be recalled that BJP MP from Tripura Manoj Kanti Deb was accused of harassing the sole lady cabinet minister Santana Chakma after a video went viral on social media.
Following this, Manoj Deb denies the charges and said that he was only trying to move the lady minister away from him as she was standing infront of her.
In a press statement, Santana Chakma also rubbished charges of harassment against the minister and said that the video circulation on social media was tampered with.
