"I have already spoken to our leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, and she is scheduled to visit Manipur and Tripura very soon," he told reporters at the state Congress headquarters here.

Roy Barman, who was inducted into the Congress Working Committee (CWC) as a permanent invitee, was felicitated by his supporters at the party office.
He is the first Congress leader from Tripura to be inducted into the CWC, the party's top decision-making body.
"My inclusion in CWC is not only a matter of personal pride, but also the pride of the Congress leaders and workers who have been fearlessly working in the northeastern state," he said.
State Congress president Asish Kumar Saha thanked the party leadership for inducting Roy Barman into the CWC.
