Tripura CM Sarkar to attend Kejriwal-convened CM meet

Agartala: Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar would attend the chief ministers’ meet called by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on September 30, an official said here on Sunday.

“Sarkar would participate in the September 30 chief ministers’ conclave in New Delhi. The meet would discuss Centre-state relations,” a top official at the Tripura chief minister’s secretariat told IANS.

Sarkar, who is leading the country’s lone Left Front government, is in his fourth term, and is now in Delhi to attend the politburo meeting of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M).

The official said that Sarkar on August 24 met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and discussed issues related to the country’s federal structure.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is likely to attend the September 30 meet as well, while it is not clear whether non-BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) chief ministers would take part in it.

CPI-M general secretary Sitaram Yechury earlier said that after Kejriwal became chief minister, his party had suggested him to convene a meeting of non-BJP chief ministers.
