GUWAHATI: Union Interior Minister Amit Shah said on Saturday that the northeast has become the country’s growth engine under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He said Modi views the northeast as the focal point for the nation’s development. Shah said the Prime Minister has visited the region at least 30 times in the last six years and has brought some gifts during each visit.
Speaking on a program to launch various projects, Shah said that Assam has embarked on a journey of peace and development under Prime Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.
“Assam was previously known for its turmoil and violence, but Sonowal and Sarma have unified the people of the state and the region with the rest of the country by defending and promoting heritage and traditions,” he said.
Shah said that the NDA’s victory in the recently concluded Bodoland Territorial Council elections was like a semi-final before the assembly elections in which it will come out the winner with a large majority.
The interior minister said that all militant organizations in the state have surrendered and returned to the mainstream.
He also urged farmers who are mobilizing against the new agricultural laws to solve their problems through discussions.
