In a rare gesture, Tripura BJP leader and would-be chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb visited CPI (M) state office on Thursday to invite ousted chief minister Manik Sarkar to Friday's swearing-in ceremony. From now onwards, the 69-year-old veteran communist leader, known to be India's honest CM, and his wife Panchali Bhattacharjee, a retired bank employee, will be staying in the one-room accommodation.

"All the chief ministers of the BJP-ruled states and the members of the BJP parliamentary board have been invited to attend the swearing-in ceremony", he said. The state party unit allotted a room to Sarkar and his wife and the couple will eat what is cooked in the party office kitchen.

"He would be moving in to the party office in a few hours".

Heaping praise on Sarkar on Twitter, Madhav said: "True to his character, he has shifted to the party office immediately after resigning as CM post the election".

Earlier, the Left Front leaders have made a decision to boycott the swearing-in of the BHP-led government spearheaded by Biplab Kumar Deb on Friday to protest "large-scale violence" in Tripura after the Assembly elections, Left leaders said on Thursday. He added that the former CM has already sent to the party office.
