Addressing the audience at the meeting of the North Eastern Council, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, ‘For a long time there was a thinking in the country that if border areas are developed or connectivity is increased in the north-eastern states, then the enemy will be benefited. . Due to this thinking of the previous government, connectivity could not be improved in all the border areas of the country including the North East.
Today, the work of building roads, tunnels, bridges, rail lines, airstrips is going on at a fast pace in the border areas. PM Modi said, we are engaged in making the border villages alive, which were once deserted.
“Political parties which had governments for a long time had a mindset of ‘divide’ for NE. We have come with a mindset of ‘divine’. Be it different communities, regions – we are removing all divisions. Disputes have no boundaries. We are building development corridors in the Northeast,” PM Modi said in his address at the meeting of the North Eastern Council in Shillong.
