PM Modi Visit Assam: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is addressing a rally in Diphu, Assam. Earlier, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma welcomed him. PM Modi will gift 7 new hospitals to Assam.
While addressing the rally, PM Modi said, ‘Whenever I have got a chance to come among you, seeing your immense love, your belongingness, I feel as if I am getting the blessings of God. You people have come here in such a large number, they have also come in their traditional dress, for this I express my heartfelt gratitude to you.’
He said that it is a happy coincidence that today when the country is celebrating the nectar festival of independence, then we are also celebrating the 400th birth anniversary of the great son of this earth, Lachit Borphukan. His life is an inspiration of patriotism and national power. I bow to this great hero of the country from Karbi Anglong.
Prime Minister Modi said that wherever the BJP’s double engine government is, it works with the spirit of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabka Prayas. Today this resolve has been strengthened again on the soil of Karbi Anglong. The foundation stone laying programs that have taken place today are not just the foundation stone of any building, it is the foundation stone for the bright future of the youth here. Now with proper arrangement for higher education here, even the poorest of the poor will be able to give better education to their children.
PM Modi said, ‘The agreement that was reached for the permanent peace and rapid development of Assam. The work of getting him down on the ground is going on at a fast pace today. Better work is also being done for the rehabilitation of the comrades who have returned for nation building, leaving arms. All of you have gone through a lot of hardships for a long time in the last decades. But after 2014, the difficulties in the North East are decreasing continuously, people are developing.’
Prime Minister Modi said that today the whole country is seeing how the decades-old problems of violence, anarchy and mistrust are being resolved in the past years. Earlier, when this area was discussed, sometimes the sound of bombs and sometimes bullets were heard. But today there is applause.
He said, ‘As peace is returning due to the collective efforts of the government and society in the North East, the old rules are also being changed. But during the last 8 years, we have removed AFSPA from many areas of the North East due to the implementation of permanent peace and better law and order.’
