Agartala: In a video, a Tripura minister is seen groping a female colleague on stage in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He has landed in a major controversy with opposition demanding that he be fired and charged with sexual harassment.
On Monday, Tripura’s opposition Left Front demanded that minister Monoj Kanti Deb be sacked for “touching” the woman in an “indecnt manner” during a rally in Agartala on Saturday that was also attended by Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb.
The minister declined to comment on the incident. However, the ruling BJP dismissed the charge and called it “character assassination”.
