In a rare instance of bipartisanship, Tripura chief minister Manik Sarkar, who leads the sole surviving Marxist regime in the country, has invited PM Narendra Modi to address the state cabinet on his favoured theme of good governance.

In Agartala, PM Modi is will meet chief minister Manik Sarkar and some of his important cabinet colleagues supposedly to discuss some development issues including a bridge on Feni river.

The meeting may take place around 2:30 pm on Monday after inaugurating the 726 mw power plant constructed at Palatana, some 70km from the state capital.

Defending his decision, Manik Sarcar said on CNN-IBN that the invitation was to the "prime minister of the country, and not to a BJP leader."
