Informing about the assurance from Rajnath Singh, chief minister Deb said the Army school will be set up in Mohanpur sub-division under the West Tripura district.

The Tripura chief minister said union defence minister Rajnath Singh accepted the demand and assured him of setting up an Army school in the state.

The chief minister informed that he had a very cordial and fruitful meeting with the union minister.

In the course of discussion with the veteran party leader and union defence minister, Biplab Kr Deb also placed a demand for establishing an Army recruitment division in Tripura which was accepted by the union minister.
