The 49-year-old is the first BJP leader to become the chief minister of the state ending the 25-year-old rule of the Left Front government in the state in the recently-concluded assembly elections.

Speaking at the swearing-in ceremony of the new BJP government in the state, Modi said that Tripura had lagged behind in progress but would now get the backing of the Centre to explore its potential and opportunities.

Speaking at the occasion, Modi thanked the people of Tripura and said that the newly formed "BJP government is for people who voted for the party and also for those who did not".

Tripura's Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb phoned Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday and sought Bangladesh's cooperation for the development of Tripura.

BJP's arrival in Tripura following the electoral victory is being seen as a humiliating defeat for the unchallenged 25-year rule of the Left Front, writes NDTV. "We will serve every citizen of Tripura".

Let's take the state to a new height so that we can change the lives of people.
