A strong and stable BJP government in Centew will ensure continuous and rapid development for the people of Arunachal and North-East: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a major public meeting in Aalo, Arunachal Pradesh today.

Highlighting the overwhelming support recieved by the BJP from the people of Arunachal, PM Modi said, “The people of Arunachal have embraced the BJP and its inclusive model of development with open arms and people have witnessed how the North-East is changing rapidly. If we compare this time with the time when Congress and its allies were in power for decades, the difference is for everyone to see. While they completely neglected the North-East and its people, we are continuously taking efforts to enhance ease of living for the people.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Describing the numerous infrastructural projects initiated and completed since 2014, Prime Minister Modi said, “I was fortunate enough to have brought Arunachal Pradesh on the rail map for the first time after seven decades of independence. Parties like the Congress ruled this country for decades and yet could not make this possible because they were never concerned about the welfare of the people, their own welfare is paramount to them always. Further, the recent completion of the long-pending Bogibeel bridge has greatly enhanced connectivity in the region. Similarly, air connectivity from Arunachal was also established during this tenure. Developments like these will go a long way in bringing the North-East at par with the rest of the country.”

 

Concluding his address to the North-Eastern state, PM Modi urged his enthusiastic supporters to vote in the upcoming General elections in large numbers and support the BJP like they supported it in 2014. He added that a strong and stable BJP government at the Centre will ensure that the rapid pace of progress and security in the NE continues unhindered.
