PM Modi to attend swearing-in ceremony of Chief Ministers of Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to attend the swearing-in ceremony of the new BJP-IPFT government in Tripura along with Nagaland and Meghalaya, news agency PTI reported.

In the recently concluded Tripura assembly elections, BJP won 32 seats while its ally IPFT won only one seat in the 60-member assembly.

PM Modi will also attend the swearing-in ceremony of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) governments in Nagaland and Meghalaya on 7 March.

Chief Secretary SK Sinha is holding a meeting with senior officials regarding the Prime Minister’s state visit. The SPG team is also coming today. A senior police officer told that the Prime Minister is coming to attend the swearing-in ceremony of the new government on March 8.

The swearing-in ceremony of the new government will be held here at Vivekananda Maidan.

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who is the president of NEDA, is likely to visit today. Apart from this, senior party leaders and chief ministers of BJP-ruled states will also be invited to attend the swearing-in ceremony of the new government.

BJP has performed well in the North Eastern states. In Tripura BJP won easily for the second time. It will form a coalition government in Nagaland with the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party. The National People’s Party called on the BJP in Meghalaya to prevent a hung house.

PM Modi said that the earlier governments never discussed the North East election results as they considered the North East states to be small and unimportant.

He also credited the good performance to the hard work of BJP workers in the three northeastern states. “Our party workers in the northeast work much harder than all of us here. They face many challenges,” he said.

PM Modi said, “The results of these elections show the firm faith of the people in democracy and democratic institutions in the country.” PM Modi said, “The way the election results of the Northeast have been highlighted in a big way, it shows that this region is neither far from Delhi nor from the heart.”
