“Tripura has marked a remarkable progress in three years in the socio-economic and infrastructure development front. The state has been allocated a target of 1.60 lakh houses under the scheme during 2021-22 under Pradhan Mantri Adarsh Gram Yojana to ensure housing for all,” the Governor underlined.

He said that MBB airport of Agartala was elevated to international standard with the most modern facilities while expansion work of all eight national highways and connecting Agartala with Bangladesh through railway line have been progressing fast. The state government has been working on a mission mode for boosting the rural economy and women empowerment, which will be strengthened further with mass involvement, Arya added.

Meanwhile, senior civil service officer of Tripura state cadre Anindya Kumar Bhattacharya has been awarded President’s Medal for Meritorious Service on the occasion of R-Day. He is the first Civil Service Officer from Tripurat to get such a prestigious award for Civil Defence activities. The officials said the Civil Defence activities since 1971 were confined to Agartala city.

After Bhattacharya became Director of Civil Defence last year, the activities extended to all eight districts and now, there is the presence of trained CD volunteers throughout the State and the activities are going on professionally. The Ministry of Home Affairs this year selected Civil Defence functionaries from six out of 29 states for prestigious presidential awards and Bhattacharya happens to be the lone recipient in the category of Director Level Officer this time.

Apart from that seven police personnel including four women cops have been awarded on the occasion of Republic Day. While Debajit Bhattacharjee, Inspector of Tripura Police, has been awarded President’s Police Medal for Distinguished Service, the President’s Police Medals for Meritorious Service have been awarded to six others.
