Tripura: Pijush Kanti Biswas, Tripura Congress leader, resigned as chief of the party’s state unit and “retired from politics.”
His resignation is another gust for the Congress party and its attempt to reclaim power in the northeastern states, and that too when Tripura votes for a new government in two years.
Mr. Biswas tweeted, “With sincere gratitude, I thank all Congress leaders, supporters for your cooperation during my tenure as TPCC President (acting). Today I have resigned from the post of President and retired from politics as well. My sincere gratitude towards Sonia Gandhiji."
