Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was on a visit to northeastern states on Saturday, attacked the opposition and said "mahamilawatwalas" were competing in an Olympics of hurling abuses at him.
"The job of the 'mahamilawatwalas' is only to heap abuses and more abuses on Modi. It is as if an Olympics is on to deride Modi," he told a rally in Agartala.

"Now for the first time in Tripura, under the BJP government, paddy is being procured at the minimum support price. Besides, the recommendation of the Seventh Pay Commission was implemented," he said.
"Tripura, the state that was deprived of development on the pretext of being a landlocked region, is now being made gateway of the South East Asia," he added.
