AGARTALA: The newly-appointed Congress president in Tripura, Pradyot Kishore Debburman, on Sunday invited all former party leaders to return to the Congress and said everyone would be given due respect.
Debburman, who was the working president of the Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC), was appointed as the president of the TPCC, by AICC chief Rahul Gandhi on February 25.
Debburman on Saturday met expelled leader and former chief minister Samir Ranjan Barman and asked him to get back to the party. Barman did not join any party after his expulsion from the Congress in March 2017.
He accepted Debburman’s invitation and rejoined the party on Saturday.
A large number of leaders, led by former Pradesh Congress president Sudip Roy Barman, defected to the Trinamool Congress in 2016 and further changed camp to join the BJP in 2017.
The new TPCC president said everyone in the party would be given due respect and in return they would also work with honesty and integrity.
“It would be my endeavour to build a strong organisation with the participation of youth, women, educated and honest people, bring back the leaders who remained out of the party and give them due respect,” he told reporters. (PTI)
