"I work in a private firm". Glad to have joined the ceremony in Agartala today. Biplab Deb is young, energetic and a fresh face.

"There would be no segregation between the individuals who voted in favor of us and the individuals who did not vote in favor of us". I want to thank the people of Tripura.

"My humble submission to Mother Tripureswari and the entire population of Tripura". The Prime Minister said that the BJP-led government will "be for those who voted for us and for those who did not". "The people here have scripted this victory, and it is responsibility now to ensure that the lamp of development lit today brightens by the day", Mr Modi said.

A day after the State President of BJP, Biplab Kumar Deb took an oath as the new Chief Minister, the ruling government in Tripura on Saturday made a decision to set up a high-level expert body to propose ways and means to raise the salaries and allowances of the state government employees at par with the proposals of the Seventh Pay Commission.

He even had a conversation with former Tripura Chief Minister, Manik Sarkar. "All disruptive activities in the state would be handled firmly; development and positive activities of the government would automatically curb violence", said Deb.

Jishnu Deb Burman also took oath as deputy chief minister of Tripura.

The Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT) is an ally of the BJP in the northeastern state. "I pledge to honour the trust you have bestowed on me and BJP".

He thanked all for installing the new Government. BJP's Santana Chakmas is the lone woman among the nine ministers sworn in.

In another tweet Modi said: "The @BJP4Tripura- IPFT Government is a Government for each and every citizen of Tripura. But we expect that the agenda of development will not be sidelined for other political factors and that Tripura will progress".

While a host of BJP leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, party president Amit Shah and BJP veterans LK Advani and MM Joshi, along with Chief Ministers of the party from other States attended the swearing-in in Agartala on Friday, CPI (M) General Secretary Sitaram Yechury started visiting villages affected by the violence.
