Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed a public meeting in Shillong Meghalaya after inaugurating 261 kilometre long 2-Laning of Shillong-Nongstoin Section of NH 106 and Nongstoin- Rongjeng Section of NH 127-B. He emphasized that the enhanced road network would boost economic activity and would establish a direct link between the important towns of the state- Shillong and Tura.

Speaking at the rally, PM Modi highlighted several welfare measures undertaken by the NDA Government for welfare of people in the Northeast. He spoke about the Northeast council which was set up in 1972. “It was only Morarji Desai who chaired the meeting of Northeast Council. After him, I got the opportunity to chair its meeting when our Government revived the council in last year.”

The PM said that Across the North East the Union Government had sanctioned around four thousand kilometres of National Highways, for an amount of over Rupees thirty two thousand crore. He added that the Government of India was executing fifteen New Rail Line projects of nearly fourteen hundred kilometre length which would cost around forty seven thousand crore rupees and boost rail infrastructure in the North Eastern Region.

Shri Modi remarked, “The wave for change, which began with the Assam elections, is now reaching Meghalaya. This state can do wonders. 15 years of Congress rule has ruined Meghalaya.”

Lashing out at the Congress government in the state, the PM said, “The Chief Minister of Meghalaya is a doctor but what is the state of the health sector in the state. Why are people not getting proper healthcare? See the record corruption in Meghalaya. Why has the Congress Government in Meghalaya committed so many scams?”

The PM took note of the lack of infrastructure in primary educational institutions and how over 70% of primary teachers were not even trained well. He blamed the Congress government for not being able to ensure clean drinking water despite being in power for almost fifteen years. He also accused them for high rate of unemployment in the state.

 The Prime Minister said that it was ‘Time for Change’ in Meghalaya. He said that BJP’s only agenda was speedy and all-round development of the state.
