Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and state Social Welfare Minister Santan Chakma left for Mizoram on Tuesday to campaign for the Assembly elections scheduled to be held there on November 28, party leaders said.

Mr. Deb and Mr. Chakma also addressed a poll rally at Kamalanagar, the headquarters of Chakma Autonomus District Council, BJP spokesperson Subrata Chakraborty said.

Mr. Deb was given special responsibility to join the Assembly poll campaign in Mizoram, he added.
