BORDUMSA, Apr 5: National BJP president Amit Shah on Friday said the BJP has proposed to establish an AIIMS institute in the state in its party manifesto.
Shah, who was addressing a BJP rally here in Changlang district, said if the party is voted to power again “the people of the state would no longer have to visit other states for quality medical treatment.”
He lauded the Pema Khandu government in the state and said the state has, under Khandu, generated more than Rs 900 crore as its own revenue.
The BJP president also lauded Khandu for providing the masses a politically stable state.
‘BJP brought peace, development’
Addressing another rally, this time in Changlang town, Shah said the Narendra Modi-led government has ensured peace and development in the Northeast, “which was roiled by militant activities even five years ago.”
The BJP is committed to take action against cross-border terrorism and to root out insurgency in the Northeast, Shah said, adding that political stability returned to Arunachal after the saffron party came to power.
Modi had instructed his ministers to visit the Northeast states every fortnight and resolve the problems of the people in the region, Shah said.
“Five years ago, the Northeast was disturbed, there was hardly any development. The BJP has brought peace to the region and paved way for its development,” he claimed.
“All parts of the Northeast now have air and rail connectivity. In Arunachal alone, the government has sanctioned Rs 50,000 crore for the development of roads,” Shah stated.
Noting that Morarji Desai was the last prime minister who attended meetings of the North Eastern Council, Shah said 40 years later, it was Modi again who attended the convention in Shillong.
“From Arunachal Pradesh to Kanyakumari, Assam to Gujarat, the BJP will form government everywhere,” the party’s national president said, adding that the party’s winning streak has started in this state.
“It is for the first time that the BJP is fighting for all assembly seats in Arunachal Pradesh. Our winning streak started in this region when three MLAs of our party were elected uncontested,” he said.
Three of the party’s candidates have been elected unopposed in the state, from Aalo East, Yachuli and Dirang assembly constituencies. (With PTI input)
