It is true – PM Modi called an Tripura IAS officer at 10pm to request his help. PM Modi apologized to the Tripura IAS officer as he was calling at 10 PM in the night, but said that the matter was serious in Tripura and requested the officer’s help to oversee the highway re-construction from the very next day for the fastest completion, with the further assurance that all resources would be provided by Government of India.. PM described to the officer the alarming situation of national highway NH208, the only link between Tripura and the rest of India had been badly damaged. So what was this officer’s reaction when told that the PM wanted to talk to him – no surprise, “his brain froze for a few seconds and legs started shivering”.
