PM Modi said that whenever I come to Arunachal, I take with me a new zeal, energy and enthusiasm. There is never apathy and despair on the faces of the people of Arunachal, what is discipline? It is visible here in every person and house.
He said that the foundation stone of this airport was laid in February 2019 and I got this good fortune. We have brought such a work culture, whose foundation stone we lay, we also inaugurate it. The time to hang, hang and wander is gone. Be it culture or agriculture, commerce or connectivity, the Northeast gets top priority, not the last.
Prime Minister Modi said that when I laid its foundation stone in 2019, elections were about to be held. Political commentators raised hue and cry that the airport is not going to be built and Modi is throwing stones at the polls. Today’s inauguration is a slap on his face. PM Modi said that the government that is in the country today, its priority is the development of the country, the development of the people of the country. 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, we work only for the development of the country.
The PM said that after independence, the Northeast witnessed a different era. For decades the area was a victim of neglect. When Atal ji’s government came, for the first time an attempt was made to change it. It was the first government to create a separate ministry for the development of the Northeast. Our government also worked considering it as the last village, not the last end, but the first village of the country.
