Tripura to turn into business hub devoid of crimes: CM Biplab Kumar Deb

Addressing the inaugural session of a conference of the state BJP's Law and Legal Affairs Department here, Deb said "true development" could be achieved only after containing crimes.

Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on December 16 said his government would maintain zero tolerance against crimes and strive hard to develop the state into a "business hub".

Addressing the inaugural session of a conference of the state BJP's Law and Legal Affairs Department here, Deb said "true development" could be achieved only after containing crimes.

"We would transform Tripura into a business hub and a crime-free state," the chief minister asserted.

Referring to places like Dubai, Singapore and Hong Kong, Deb said the rate of crime there was considerably "low" and that he wanted to develop Tripura in a similar direction.

"In Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong, crime rate is very low. If anyone goes to Dubai, he doesn't have to think about any theft. Taxi drivers of Singapore make sure tourists don't face any trouble. They understand that trouble for a tourist is a loss for their nation and his homestead," Deb said.

The CM also observed that youngsters who travel abroad for higher studies often do not come back as the state lagged behind in terms of development.

"Children from Tripura go to other states, even abroad for studies. But they don't want to come back here because the former dispensation failed to develop the state in last 25 years," Deb said.

The state government was in the process of drafting a policy so that students do not have to move outside Tripura for education or jobs, he maintained.

"In the next three years, we shall transform Udaipur, Agartala and Dharmanagar into modern cities. All facilities of big cities like Pune, Bangalore will be available there. After that, no child from Tripura will have to go outside the state," he added.

Udaipur is the district headquarters of Gomati district and Dharmanagar of North Tripura district.
