Leftist CM meets US diplomat in Tripura

Agartala: After long years lone leftist Chief Minister of the country, Manik Sarkar held meeting with US Consul General in Kolkata Craig Hall on Friday at Agartala on prospect of higher education, regional connectivity and economic tie ups in respect to the development of Tripura.
It seems leftists have shifted their stand towards America and are coming closure to USA to harness the fruit of Obama’s Indo-US development initiatives. The discussion was focused on the growing US-India relationship. Hall called on Tripura Governor Tathagata Roy during his two days maiden Tripura visit.
Hall interacted on US-India Relations: A Partnership for 21st Century with students of Tripura University and said, “The United States sees with India the potential for a friendship and partnership that will be transformative for the 21st century.” He also stressed on the importance of people-to-people connections and said, “As Americans, we believe in the promise of India. We believe in the people of India. We are proud to be your friend. We are proud to be your partner as you build the country of your dreams and inspired the students to become transformational leaders”.
As part of his outreach, Hall visited the Akhaura border post and witnessed the beating retreat ceremony. (UNI)
