Addressing massive rallies in Barpeta, Mangaldoi and Nagaon in Assam, on the afternoon of 19th April, Shri Narendra Modi came down heavily upon the misgovernance of the State and the Central government, which only believed in spreading lies and misleading the Nation for their personal gains. Shri Modi condemned the divisive politics played by them and urged the people to elect a government that would work for the development of the State and the country.

Criticizing the State government for the lack of development in Assam, inspite of it being in power for nearly a decade, Shri Modi spoke of how the ‘Mother-Son’ duo in Delhi and the ‘Father-Son’ duo in Assam had only brought ruin to the people who had elected them. The Congress’ blatant lies were exposed by Shri Modi who spoke of how the Congress Vice President was making false claims of giving employment through NREGA. Shri Modi said that while crores had applied for jobs through NREGA, only few thousands were given jobs. Even in Assam, out of the one lakh families that applied for NREGA, only a few thousand people had been employed.

The Congress’ apathy towards the safety and security of its people, especially the women, was condemned by Shri Modi who spoke of how females from the North-East had been victims of heinous crimes in Delhi, and also in their state of Assam. Shri Modi also stated recent figures which showed that Assam had figured in the list of top three states with the most crimes on women. He spoke of how the Congress had misled the Nation by creating a Nirbhaya Fund of Rs. 1000 crore, but has not used a penny out of it till date.

Stating that the Congress’ only focus was on divisive and destructive politics, Shri Modi cited how the division of Telangana and Seemandhra had only brought further ruin and misery for the people of these states. Referring to a similar step taken by the Assam government, and in context of the violence witnessed in the State due to conflicts between Bodos and non-Bodos, Shri Modi said, Bodo and non-Bodo people are being divided by the Congress only for their own gains. They should take everyone together,” said Shri Modi.

Shri Modi spoke of how the Assam CM would spread one lie everyday, and stated how a TV channel recently had exposed the lack of basic amenities in the region. “News Time Assam actually came to Gujarat to verify the lies your CM said and they opened the eyes of the people of Assam,” said Shri Modi.

He also spoke on other pertinent issues of infiltration from the borders, the need to protect natural resources and the much-required focus on ensuring education and skill development to the youth.

Shri Modi urged the people to show their support for the BJP and make it victorious, and assured them that with development and good governance he will return the love of the people. He also extended greetings and conveyed good wishes on Rongali Bihu.

Road connectivity in the North-East will see a major transformation: PM to inaugurate India’s longest bridge
Dhola-Sadia Bridge to provide efficient road connectivity to remote and backward areas which have poor road infrastructure
Dhola-Sadia Bridge to give a major boost to overall economic development in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh

Road connectivity in the North-East will see a major transformation when Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurates the country’s longest river bridge –the Dhola- Sadiya Bridge in Assam tomorrow. This new, three lane, 9.15 kilometre bridge has been built over river Lohit, a tributary of the Brahmaputra, linking Dhola in Assam to Sadiya in Arunachal Pradesh. The bridge will fill a huge connectivity gap that has existed in the region. Till now, the only means to cross the Brahmaputra at this location has been by ferry only in day-time and even this is not possible during floods. The last bridge over the Brahmaputra was the Kalia Bhomora Bridge at Tejpur. This will however change from tomorrow with the Dhola-Sadiya bridge ensuring 24X7 connectivity between upper Assam and Eastern part of Arunachal Pradesh.

The bridge will also reduce the distance from Rupai on NH- 37 in Assam to Meka/Roing on NH-52 in Arunachal Pradesh by 165 KM. The travel time between the two places will come down from the current six hours to just one hour – a total five hour reduction. This will result in saving of petrol and diesel worth Rs 10 Lakh per day.

The Dhola-Sadiya bridge promises to usher in prosperity in the North-East. It will provide efficient road connectivity to remote and backward areas which have poor road infrastructure. This bridge will also give a major boost to overall economic development of the areas north of Brahmaputra in upper Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. It will also cater to the strategic requirements of the country in the border areas of Arunachal Pradesh, besides facilitating numerous hydro power projects coming up in the state , as it is the most sought after route for various power project developers.

The total length of the Dhola-Sadiya Bridge project, including the approach roads on each side, is 28.50 km. The length of the bridge itself is 9.15 Km. It has been constructed on BOT Annuity basis at a total cost of Rs 2,056 crore, as part of the Arunachal Package of Roads and Highways under the Ministry’s SPECIAL ACCELERATED ROAD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME for NORTH EAST (SARDP-NE). The objective was to bring the people of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh closer to each other.
