The new appointments come over a week after a major reshuffle in Tripura Cabinet when state Health Minister Sudip Roy Barman was removed from the state cabinet. The charges held by him were allocated to Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and his deputy Jishnu Dev Varma.
According to a notification issued by the Tripura government, the Chief Minister will hold the charge of PWD (DWS), Industry & Commerce (IT) and Health & Family Welfare.
The deputy chief minister has been given the charge of Science, Technology and Environment.
According to sources, Barman was ousted from the cabinet for indulging in anti-party activities.
