Ram Madhav in NE festival in Delhi

A North East Festival in New Delhi is pulling no less crowd after it opened in the capital on Friday. Organized by an Assam-based NGO, the on going event at IGNCA is being attended by a number BJP leaders, professors and journalists who projected the north eastern region from different perspectives. BJP leader Ram Madhav who has been looking after the party’s Assam affairs was prominent among those who attended the event on Saturday. 

Madhav said, "the emotional disconnect between the people of North East and the rest of the country is our own creation. We as a government are committed to bridge this emotional disconnect. Development is not complete without the development of North East. The Government of India is taking many steps for the development of the region and talking to Bangladesh and other SAARC nations as well to work in this regard. As part of our Look East Policy, we are looking to improving the physical connectivity and infrastructure in the region."

Others who spoke in the event included Nani Gopal Mahanta, Ravi Capoor, AM Singh, Krishalaya  Bhattacharya to be thanked by chief organizer Shyamkanu Mahanta. The prominence of a political figure like Ram Madhab other than a Union minister raised the eyebrows of many visitors who thronged the venue on Saturday.
