Antara Sarkar Deb, a newly elected BJP MLA from Tripura, is winning hearts for using an autorickshaw to travel to her constituency as well as for personal use.

The MLA, from the Kamalasagar constituency under Sepahijala district, says that she is committed to resolving the long-pending issues of her constituency and would stick to this simple lifestyle.
