Highlights of PM’s rally in Kokrajhar:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed a public meeting in Kokrajhar, Assam. Speaking at the BJP and Bodo People’s Front Tribal Rally, PM Modi said that his visit was at a very crucial moment amidst an atmosphere of Ekta and Sadbhavana referring to the new alliance of the BJP and BPF and the merger of various BPF factions.

‎PM Modi stated that development was the only solution to all the problems faced by people in Assam. “My three point focus is - development, development and development. Solution to all problems is in development”, said the Prime Minister. He highlighted that his Government was dedicated to development of infrastructure, be it roads, railways or waterways. The PM also cited the Government’s 'Act East Policy'- to integrate the North-east region in the development journey.

Shri Narendra Modi said that India attained independence 68 years ago but around 18,000 villages were still un-electrified. Shri Modi stated that his aim is not only to provide electricity for a few hours but 24/7 availability of electricity to the people. “From Red Fort I said this will change. We will bring electricity to every village”, said the PM.

Shri Modi said that every Indian must have their own house and highlighted about ‘Housing for All’ scheme.

Taking a jibe at the previous Government, Shri Modi said that they made numerous promises but failed to deliver. “A party ruled the state for 15 years, gave a PM from Assam for 10 years, but still the state was not rid of its problems! They have accepted it that despite a PM being from here, the list of problems and incomplete work is immense in Assam”, said the Prime Minister.

PM thanked the people of Assam for attending the rally in huge numbers and said that it inspired him to work even harder for the people.

Highlights of PM’s rally in Guwahati:

Addressing a youth rally in Guwahati, Assam, Shri Narendra Modi mentioned that people wanted the state to move ahead faster. He said that his Government’s aim was for an Assam moving at fast pace where its youth was employed and the farmers had a bright future.

PM Modi highlighted, that today, India was among the fastest growing economies of the world. “Our FDI is increasing and this would create jobs for youth”, he added. He said that India’s development should be all-round and not restricted to any part of the country.

Shri Modi mentioned that India’s north-east had immense possibilities of development as the land was blessed with natural resources and raw material. Shri Modi stressed on organic farming in the north-eastern states and said that it could be strength of the region. Adding further, the PM said, “Second green revolution will happen from here, in Assam. There is water; the farmer here is hard-working. What is needed is technology.”

PM Narendra Modi said that his Government would work for development of the state with the mantra of ‘Aage Badhega Assam’. No force, he said, would be able to stop the development of Assam. He also took a dig at Congress party and said, “For us youth means the youngsters here in front of me. For the Congress it is the families of a select few.”

He said that Government at centre would leave no stone unturned for the development of Assam.
