The national anthem was played for the first time in the Tripura assembly on Friday.

The first session of the newly elected House begun with the election of Speaker Rebati Mohan Das.

As soon as the House assembled at 11am and Protem speaker Ratan Chakraborty arrived to conduct the Speaker’s elections, the national anthem was played and all the ministers, members, officials, journalists and spectators stood up to show respect.

Assembly Secretary Bamdeb Majumder said they would try to play the national anthem every day.

“I do not know whether the national anthem was played in any other Assembly in the country,” Majumder said.

Communist Party of India-Marxist legislator Badal Choudhury said that the Assembly authorities did not consult the opposition on the issue.
