The Times of India report dated December 1, 2014 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 the Chief Minister, Shri Manik Sarkar.

It may be recalled, that such a meeting of state ministers had taken place when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had visited Tripura.

To represent this as a Cabinet meeting to be addressed by the Prime Minister is incorrect and misplaced.
