    The Tripura government was quick to release a statement in which it said that the CM was misquoted.

    The statement by the CM was made in the context of the newly renamed airport in Agartala as Maharaja Bir Bikram Manikya Kishore Airport. 

    Unfortunately, attempts have been made to take the above comments of the CM out of context and relate them to the severely reprehensible incidents of lynchings," the statement by directorate and information and cultural relations said.
