Sunil Deodhar, the national leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) who is credited to snatching away Tripura from the Left Front for the BJP in the last assembly election held in March 2018, has played mentor role to the two Chakma Member of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) who were elected on BJP tickets.
The BJP together with its ally Indigenous People’s Front of Tripura (IPFT) won 44 seats in 60-seat Assembly. BJP itself won 36 seats. Sambhulal Chakma and Santana Chakma won from BJP tickets. Of them, Santana Chakma has become a Cabinet Minister.
Sambhulal Chakma is already well known to the Chakmas as a social worker and fabulous singer.
But, today Sunil Deodhar introduced him to the netizens.
“Meet 28 years old Sambulal Chakma, who is the youngest BJP MLA in the newly elected Assembly of Tripura. Chakma is a famous singer, first year trained swayamsevak of the RSS. Sambhulal has done D Pharma and BSW,” Deodhar wrote in Hindi.
Earlier, immediately after the election victory, on 7 March, Deodhar had also fondly introduced Ms Santana Chakma.
