AGARTALA, Sep 14 (TIWN): As Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb has not apologized for his Undemocratic statement yet, a section of state journalists might knock the court to prove him 'guilty' for it. Already after journalists protested against CM's statement leading newspapers like Dainik Sambad has been issued a notice under a notice by DM centering a different news on COVID-19. However, national and even international media are too covering Tripura CM's statement delivered at Sabroom's SEZ inauguration programme with an unconstitutional essence. NDTV was the first among the national media which raised concerns over the suppressed 'Freedom of Speech' in this Northeast state and now various national media also have started covering.

Thus, Biplab Kumar Deb is once again viral in social media, national media due to wrong reason after he threatened state's media for reporting on COVID-19 'mismanagement' fueling storms of criticism.
