When Tripura IAS officer gets call from PM Modi at Night 

A post on Quora is going viral these days about Tripura Cadre IAS officer getting call from none other than PM MODI at Night. 


Pushpak Chakraborty,  a Quora user posted online that he came to know about an IAS officer through his  father, who knew him personally. According to him Narendra Modi personally intervened to improve the condition of NH 208(A)  connecting TRIPURA with rest of INDIA.  

“Question asked on Quora was what real change you felt in your lives, ever since Modi government came to power”


Read his full post:





An IAS officer who is well known to my father and is posted in North Tripura got a call at 10pm on 21st July. He was surprised to get a call so late in the night.

A young voice from the other side apologised for calling so late and asked if he is free for a few minutes because the Prime Minister Mr Narendra Modi wants to talk to him.

His brain froze for a few seconds and he could feel his legs shivering. He meekly whispered yes and after a few beeps, the call was transferred and none other than Mr Modi was on call. Modi apologised to him again for calling so late and said that he is just done with a meeting with Mr Nitin Gadkari and they needed his help to repair National Highway 208-A connecting Tripura to the rest of the country. He says he doesn’t even remember how he responded to it. All he remembers is Modi telling him that the GOI has spoken to both the Assam and Tripura Government and all help would be provided to him to oversee the project. He didn’t sleep that night. Modi’s voice kept echoing in his mind and he couldn’t believe what had just happened. He tried connecting all dots and couldn’t find any logic.

Next day, when he reached his office, he got communications from Tripura Government, Assam Government and GOI. He was sanctioned funds for the project to repair 15 kms of the highway. He immediately took his staff and went to visit the stretch. He found 6 JCBs standing there that were provided by Assam Government.


Over the next 4 days, more than 300 trucks with materials kept arriving and along with local workers and PWD officials from Assam and Tripura, he opened the highway for vehicles with necessities for Tripura.




Yesterday Mr Nitin Gadkari called him to thank him for his remarkable efforts and promised that NH-44 would be repaired on a war mode. He also asked him to visit PMO office whenever he is in Delhi.

That’s my India with such remarkable stories of valour and I am proud of it. This story signifies how the Central Government is concerned about its people and there are numerous, I repeat, numerous such stories from across the country. 


Though many doubted his post on Quora and  even doubted its authenticity.  But later Pushpak posted on Quora the media reports and local newspaper articles which supports its authenticity. 

“If you’re one among the few who doubt the credibility of this story, kindly go through the comment chain where few have precisely mentioned the details. Those who still doubt the authenticity of the story, do something. If you know to read Bengali, brilliant, or else find a Bengali friend and read Dainik Sambad Newspaper of 26th August 2016, Tripura’s most read newspaper. The Tripura state administration has verified the story,” his post said.
