AGARTALA | May 13, 2020:

The state cabinet of Tripura on Tuesday approved to dissolve the Tripura Tribal Area Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) executive committee on May 17 as polls could not be held due to nationwide COVID-19 lockdown.

The Governor of Tripura Ramesh Bais will assume administration of the District Council as per provisions of the 6th Schedule of the Constitution.

However, the Governor will appoint an administrator to run the ADC if required.

Earlier on March 26, Tripura deferred general elections of the district council indefinitely, with its tenure to expire on May 17.
