Agartala: As people see the tall man Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb leading the state’s administration and always speaking, encouraging and promoting his thoughts of Tripura’s development, curiosity runs high among many of them regarding some of Deb’s hidden secrets.

Among more than a dozen people this correspondent spoke to, 90 percent wanted to know about the size of Deb’s wallet or to put it aptly: How much does the Chief Minister carry with him. Well the answer was not an easy-go-way task to find out but the team RiseEast now has an answer. Sources very close to Deb revealed that Deb does not carry even a Rs 10 note with him.

“His USP is to keep things simple. He feels he can eat anywhere in the road, people give him clothes suited for his personality. Being grounded and sober are some of the key things that someone can easily notice in Deb. And, his real pulse for Tripura gets revealed when he takes the colloquial way to express his words. It’s just like his impression of belongingness”, said a source.

“Why should I carry cash? If I am hungry, I can get easily fed at any household. If I need clothes, people from the state will offer me that. The entire 37 lakh population is my asset”, Deb has been quoted as saying by the source.

Example of Deb’s simplicity are many. “He never hesitates to eat at any place. Once he had been trolled on social media for just asking for a little gravy. So, this is him, he feels like home everywhere, it may be a multi-storeyed building or a shabby thatched hut. Even while traveling to Delhi, he always travels in the economy class and with minimal staff strength”, the source further added.

His straightforward behaviour always reflects in his actions and decision making process also. “The concepts like e-governance, digitalization and other advancements to bring about a transparent approach in government project where citizens feel like participating in government works reflect his well-intended efforts as well as his grit”, the source concluded.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
