Northeast Poll Wins Have Helped Unite Country: PM Modi

Northeast Poll Wins Have Helped Unite Country: PM Modi

Under Modi's leadership in New Delhi, the BJP has chalked up wins in 7 more states since 2014, not least because of Modi's campaign style combined with the party's grassroots election machinery, analysts note. While addressing swearing-in ceremony at the Assam Rifles ground in Agartala, he said, " The central government will provide you full support in the march towards development with the motto of cooperative federalism defined in the constitution. I want to thank the people of Tripura.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated the people of Tripura for electing the BJP to power and assured that the newly formed government in the state will receive all assistance from the Centre.

Biplab Kumar Deb takes oath as the Chief Minister of Tripura on Friday noon, forming the first-time BJP government in the state.

Deb said, "My gesture of touching Manik Sarkar's feet during the swearing-in function was because I respect our tradition and we need the experience of a veteran leader like him to run the show in Tripura". The newly-installed CM, Deb, is 48. The ex-Tripura CM Manik Sarkar also attended the event.

Tripura's erstwhile royal family's scion Jishnu Debbarma, who was recently sworn in as the Deputy Chief Minister of the new BJP-led Tripura Government, is the BJP candidate for Charilam seat.

"I am happy that a new government has taken charge for the development of Tripura and there is a woman in the council of ministers". The oath ceremony was attended by prime minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit shah among others.

In an effort to reach out to the entire population of the state, the PM said, "I am here to assure the people of Tripura, this BJP government is for people who voted for us and for those who did not vote for us. We have to work together for the progress of Tripura", he asserted. The BJP-IPFT alliance had won the Assembly polls with a two-thirds majority in the 60-member House.

On the last day of campaigning, the CPI-M-led Left Front on Saturday withdrew its candidate from the Charilam assembly constituency claiming "extremely awful situation" in the tribal dominated areas of Tripura "due to massive reign of terror" by the BJP.
