Modi govt taking steps for development of NE: Oraon

KOHIMA, 16 Jun: The Narendra Modi government is taking a number of steps for the development of the northeastern states, including Nagaland, BJP National ST Morcha president and Rajya Sabha member Sameer Oraon said.

He was speaking at a function marking the eight years celebration of the Modi government, organised by the Nagaland BJP unit here on Tuesday.

“Unlike the previous governments, it is the Modi government which is seriously concerned for the welfare and development of the Northeast region to put it at par with the rest of the world,” he said.

Nagaland being a tribal state, all the BJP workers should make effort to take forward the programme and schemes of the Modi government, the BJP ST Morcha president said.

Under the Modi government, the Northeast is witnessing immense developmental works, including road and rail connectivity, information technology, women empowerment and others, he said.

BJP organisational general secretary in-charge of Manipur and Nagaland, Abhay Giri said that union ministers are now regularly touring the Northeast region because of the commitment of the prime minister.

Nagaland BJP president Temjen Imna Along described Modi as a “tall leader with visionary strategies” to build India into a strong and developed nation. (PTI)
