Leader of Opposition in Tripura Assembly, Sudip Roy Burman on Thursday demanded dismissal of a ruling CPI-M MLA for furnishing untrue information regarding his educational qualification in affidavits.

Burman, also a Congress legislator said the CPI(M) MLA Keshab Debbarma from Golaghati tribal reserve seat made two affidavits before courts before the state assembly elections in 2008 and 2013.

"In the affidavit made on January 31, 2008 he mentioned that he appeared in the Madhyamik examination in the year 1992 and in the affidavit before 2013 elections, he referred that he passed the Madhyamik examination conducted by Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) in 1989. It is clear that he furnished untrue information before courts," he told reporters.

Burman said he had sent a letter to the Election Commission enclosing all relevant copies on May 20 last for taking appropriate actions against Debbarma.

Burman on Thursday urged Chief Minister Manik Sarkar file a case of forgery against Debbarma and dismiss him from the post of a MLA.
