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.

"Mr. Sarkar is unlikely to avail himself of such facilities and will continue to live in the party office's one-room guest house", a party member said.

The wife of the former CM had earlier told PTI that she would be donating the Marxist literature and books to the party office library and the Birchandra Central library in Agartala.

Sarkar was the CM of Tripura for the last 20 years.

In the Tripura Assembly elections 2018, the results of which were announced on March 3, the BJP and its alliance partner, Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT), won 43 seats, out of which the saffron party got 35 seats. A long-time RSS worker, Deb has been largely credited for the BJP's turnaround in Tripura. On Thursday evening, it was here that he received BJP leader Ram Madhav, who wanted to invite him in person to the oath ceremony of the new BJP government.
