Union home minister will be visiting Tripura next month to inaugurate a host of development projects and to review the ongoing central projects.

Agartala: The much-hyped visit of Union Minister Amit Shah in Tripura scheduled in next month is being seen as a significant event in terms of the state’s political and developmental landscape. Shah, will be visiting here after a long gap of about two years. He last campaigned for the BJP for the Lok Sabha elections.

Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb has recently paid a visit to New Delhi and met a host of Union Ministers including Shah and discussed some of the key issues for development of the state.

Apart from that, a team of IPFT leaders led by minister Mevar Kumar Jamatia also met Shah a few days back. Jamatia in his media brief said that Shah would arrive here and chair joint meetings to assess the political scenario and guide the BJP-IPFT alliance to work unitedly for the next general elections of Tripura assembly.

On the other hand, official sources said, he will be visiting Tripura next month to inaugurate a host of development projects and to review the ongoing central projects. He will lay the foundation stone of the multi crore Matabari renovation project at Udaipur next month. The central government earlier sanctioned a Rs 37.8 crore project for development of Matabari.

Under this project the whole Matabari temple shall be renovated with the introduction of some new projects. Tourism minister Pranajit Singha Roy said, “the funds have been sanctioned under PRASAD (Pilgrimage Rejuvenation And Spiritual Augmentation Drive) scheme.

Funds are allocated for constructing a replica of 51 Shakti Pithas within the Matabari complex, the placid lake of Kalyansagar will also be renovated under the project”. Home Minister Amit Shah has always visited Matabari during his Tripura tours and sources believe that Matabari is always close to his heart. Apart from that, Shah is also going to launch a number of development projects during his visit.

Meanwhile, political observers see his visit as an unofficial beginning of the party campaign for the 2023 general elections. “Shah Ji is known for his strong poll maneuvering. In terms of politics, his visit is very crucial for the politically charged Tripura”, a source in the BJP said. “Attempts will be made to ensure unity in the BJP and channelise the party in the right direction. As the BJP is readying for the elections of 2023, his presence will instill confidence among the Karyakartas and give a boost to the party”, he added.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
