Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb, Deputy CM Jihashnu Debbarma, Mayor of Agartala municipal corporation Dr. Prafulljit Sinha and legislators were present on the occasion.
Tathagata Roy who had been the governor until now is leaving the state for some days and it is due to this reason that Keshari Nath Tripathi is taking the oath of Governor in the state.
