Modi seeks Tripura CM’s tips on tackling insurgency

Modi, who met with the entire cabinet, also asked him to provide success stories of the state’s development that could be replicated in other parts of the country.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday requested Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar to send him a detail note on how the Left Front government had tackled insurgency so successfully. Modi, who met with the entire cabinet, also asked him to provide success stories of the state’s development that could be replicated in other parts of the country.

“It was not a cabinet meeting that the PM addressed, but a meeting with the entire cabinet, where several ministers directly interacted with the PM and put forward their views,” a senior CPM leader said. Earlier in the day, reports of Modi addressing Tripura cabinet about good governance created confusion with the CPM office in New Delhi describing it as a “wrong” information.

The PM was in Tripura for a few hours — his last engagement in the first three-day tour of the Northeast — during which he commissioned the second unit of the 726-MW gas-based power plant at Palatana. “An economic corridor would be established using Northeast, Myanmar and adjoining regions. Northeast would be a gateway of Southeast Asia in future,” Modi said.
