NE top priority for NDA govt: Modi


ITANAGAR: Prime Minister Narendra Modi claimed to have accelerated the pace of development of the north eastern region with a slew of initiatives during the last three years.

Addressing a huge public meeting in Itanagar organized to open the new secretariat building on Thursday, Modi said that he has instructed his cabinet colleagues to visit the region once in a month.

“Our government is not running from Delhi. It is running from the nook and corner of the country. I have issued the instructions to the ministers to visit the region to take stock of the development initiatives once in a month.

“An union minister keeps visiting the region once in a month. Doing something for the region sitting in Delhi is meaningless,,” said the prime minister.

Surface transport minister Nitin Gadkari, minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju Chief minister Pema Khandu, his cabinet colleagues were present in the public meeting joined by nearly 20.000 people.
