The move comes weeks after Biswas offered to resign from his post, alleging non-cooperation from party colleagues but was stopped by the party. Congress vice-president in the state Tapas Dey also resigned, after his photo with Union minister of state for social empowerment Pratima Bhowmik went viral on social media.

The statement said the party “appreciates the contributions of outgoing acting president Pijush Kanti Biswas”.

Md Billal Miah, a former minister, Manik Deb, Sushanta Chakraborty, Purnita Chakma and Pradeep Bardhan have been appointed as working presidents of the party.

Apart from these, the party also announced vice presidents, treasurer, general secretaries, secretaries, and executive committee for Tripura.

The move comes around one and a half year before the next assembly polls.
