OUR CORRESPONDENT, Chandpur

Biplab Kumar Deb became the talk of Kochua yesterday as he took oath as the chief minister of the Indian state of Tripura. H is relatives and friends celebrated the “son of the soil’s” achievement and distributed sweets in the locality. Biplab's’ paternal uncle Prandhon Deb, who has been living in their ancestral home in Meghdair village in Kochua upazila under Chandpur district, told this correspondent that the new Tripura chief minister was the only son of his parents and has two sisters. “Like many others, Biplab's parents crossed the border just before the beginning of the Liberation War to escape the Pakistani army’s atrocities. They took shelter in Tripura and eventually settled there,” he said.

Biplab grew up in Tripura and then settled in Delhi to work as a gymnasium expert. Prandhon said Biplab often visited his ancestral home at Meghdair. “After he won the election last Sunday, Biplab called me and sought my blessings. He said he would visit his native village soon,” he added.
