In his 24-minute long speech, the Prime Minister Modi said “Tripura was earlier known twice a year- once during election and other is for violence. Now Tripura is well known for its developmental activities. Centre is sanctioning and releasing thousands of crores of money for development and state government is executing those. In last five years, numerous villages were well connected with roads.”

“The double-engine government has expedited its activities in achieving targeted goals. The expansion of national highways and roads connecting villages will boost the development immensely. Tripura is becoming the international trade way for north-eastern region with the starting of Agartala-Akhaura railway link project. This will connect India with Thailand and Myanmar which will boost the north-eastern region in paving better relationship with southeast Asian countries”, he said.

Citing the differences between present double-engine government and previous governments, Prime Minister said “Multi-faceted developments had been witnessed by the people in last five years across the state. Earlier, Tripura was deprived of development and political leaders were busy in working for their own personal interest which incurred huge loss for the common masses. Those politicians knows how to spread negativity and there’s no positivity in them. The double-engine government has resolutions and also an active way to success. Time when Tripura needed accelerators, scammers drove in reverse gear which led to the loss for the indigenous people and left them underdeveloped.”

He also said that 24 seats out of 27 assembly constituencies reserved for ST community in Gujarat were won by BJP as people are well aware about the developmental perspective the double-engine governments.
