“Today, I am leaving for Delhi for a two-day visit and will meet the prime minister to submit a status report on various development projects, including schemes sponsored by the Centre,” he told reporters here.

Tripura’s position in executing development projects is ‘good’ as compared to other States, he claimed.

“There are several projects which have been completed before the scheduled time, while some ongoing projects will be done within the stipulated time,” he said.

The State will go to the assembly poll in March next year, while the election to village committees under the Tripura Tribal Areas Autonomous District Council (TTAADC) is scheduled to be completed by the first week of November.

Saha revealed that he would try to meet other Union ministers to expedite projects which are in the pipeline.

The CM is also expected to attend the NITI Aayog’s Governing Council meeting, which will be chaired by PM Modi, on August 7.

Earlier in the day, the chief minister purchased a national flag from a stall as part of the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’, a 75-week grand celebration to mark 75 years of India’s Independence.

He appealed to people to hoist the tricolour on August 13, 14 and 15 to pay respect to the freedom fighters as part of the celebrations.
