Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday targetted Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar and said that the present government in the state has established an atmosphere of fear among the people who speak against them.
Addressing a rally in Sonamura, PM Modi said, “The scams and corruption that leadership of this state hides behind the ‘white kurta’ and ‘bank account’ must come in public domain.The present government in Tripura has established an atmosphere of fear among the people who speak against them.”
“People wear different stones for their progress and peace. People in Tripura do not deserve any ‘manik’ but a ‘hira’ – highways, i-ways (digital connectivity), roadways and airways,” he added.
After Sonamura, the prime minister will address a public meeting at Kailashahar later in the day. PM Modi will again visit the state on February 15 and address a public meeting in Agartala.
