She also said people of rural Tripura are equipped with knowledge regarding all sorts of central sponsored schemes implemented in the state and added that though the state government was yet to achieve cent per cent success in providing basic amenities in rural areas, it was taking all out efforts.

A total of 27 exhibitions of several development departments and SHGs had put up stalls to exhibit implementation of programmes and products.
