According to the report of the Indian Express, while addressing the journalists at the state secretariat on Monday evening, Information and Cultural Affairs Minister Sushant Chaudhary had said, ‘This is the program of our Prime Minister, the supreme leader of the country.

We hope that this program will end in a better way with the presence of people from all walks of life including businessmen, doctors, engineers, lawyers, employees and common people. Please participate in this program tomorrow (Tuesday) to realize the Prime Minister’s call of ‘One Tripura, Shreshtha Tripura’.
Choudhary said that the state government has arranged special trains for people from North and South Tripura to attend the Prime Minister’s program.
Additional Chief Secretary Shriram Tarnikanti said that special trains will leave from Dharmanagar in North Tripura district at 7 am on Tuesday and from Sabroom district in South Tripura at 9:30 am. Apart from this, buses and other vehicles will also be available for transport. These trains will return at 5 pm.
Meanwhile, Trinamool Congress shared purported photographs of office memos of Directorate of Labor and Tripura Institute of Technology (TIT) advising staff, faculty members and students to attend Prime Minister Modi’s public meeting.
Trinamool Congress tweeted and said, ‘All staff members and officers of Directorate of Labor and West District Labor Office have to attend Modi ji’s program. Is Narendra Modi feeling insecure? Is his fading popularity taking a toll on him? It is clear that he is not worried about how many lives he is putting at risk by doing so.

Responding to this, Information and Cultural Affairs Minister Sushant Choudhary said, “The Trinamool Congress does not even know about the protocol. This is a government program, so various departments were asked to be present in it. The Prime Minister is coming, so regardless of political identity, everyone should come here. Those who find faults will find faults in heaven too.
Criticizing the Trinamool Congress for politicizing the government programme, he said the TMC is finding fault with it as they do not have any legitimate issue in Tripura.
The Prime Minister is likely to announce 13 projects worth Rs 2,950 crore during his visit on Tuesday.
A senior health official said that no new guidelines have been issued regarding COVID-19 in the state. Appeals are being made to people gathering in large numbers for any reason to wear masks at all times, to clean hands with sanitizer and to maintain physical distance.
