Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday announced that Tripura BJP chief Biplab Kumar Deb will be the next chief minister of the state. The 48-year-old leader was the frontrunner for the chief ministerial post following his party's victory in Tripura.

The BJP demolished the Left citadel in Tripura, winning a two-third majority with ally IPFT, and ending 25 years of uninterrupted rule of the CPI(M)-led rule in the state.

"I am ready to take the responsibility. I will not run away from taking any responsibility," he had said.

Biplab was a former Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) volunteer and previously campaigned in elections to the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council.
