As the BJP-led NDA government pushed the bill to outlaw instant triple talaq in the Rajya Sabha, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb went on an overdrive to extend support to victims of the practice in the northeastern state. He asked Muslim women who were victims of triple talaq to reach out to his office.
“I would like to solve their issues at the highest priority,” he said, sharing a landline number for the Chief Minister’s office that could be used to directly reach him.
Biplab Kumar Deb’s tweet came hours after the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party-led coalition pulled off a coup of sorts in the Rajya Sabha, getting the house to clear the contentious legislation that had been in the deep freezer for about a year.
Biplab Kumar Deb put out his tweet offer that offered victims a one-stop solution. “My Appeal to all Muslim Sisters of #Tripura who have been a victim of the #TripleTalaq so far can directly meet me and can share their problems directly with me. I would like to solve their issues at the highest priority,” the chief minister tweeted.
