THE Times of India report (dated December 1) that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to attend the state cabinet meeting in Tripura is misleading.
The actual fact is that during the prime minister's visit to Tripura, the chief minister and state ministers are going to meet him at the state guest house. They will submit a memorandum and discuss with him issues concerning the state. This has been clarified by Chief Minister Manik Sarkar.
It may be recalled, that such a meeting of state ministers had taken place when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had visited Tripura.
