FICCI NE Chairman reacts to election results

Reacting to the latest Loksabha poll election results, Ranjit Barthakur, Chairman of FICCI, North East Advisory Council said “We are happy that this election was fought on a development agenda. The unprecedented voter participation and the clear results thereafter is a mandate for development. We hope the new Government under Narendra Modi will focus special attention on the North Eastern Region.”

For India to develop into a leader of the 21st century, we cannot afford to have the North East remain backward. FICCI had drawn up a number of proposals for development initiatives including development of a 4000 km ring road connecting all the north eastern states, rail connectivity with all the state capitals, development of Inland Waterways, development of border townships and direct connectivity with neighbouring countries like Myanmar, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal, more airports and improved Air Connectivity. Connectivity and Infrastructure will continue to be our top agenda and we will continue to push this agenda with the new Government. We hope to see a lot of proactive, affirmative action on the development front from the new Government, he said.
