Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday said that the government-accelerated Development Initiatives in North East have transformed ‘Look East policy’ into ‘Act East Policy’, leading to all round developments in the Northeast region, enabling all the states to improve trade with South East Asian Nations. 

He was addressing the two-day conclave on the theme ‘Celebrating Contribution of India’s North East Region (NER) in Nation Building’, organized by Indian Army and State Governments of Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, Mizoram, Manipur & Nagaland as well as North Eastern Zone Cultural Council (NEZCC) at Guwahati, through a video message.

The defence minister said that Pradhan Mantri Gati Shakti Master Plan would act as force multiplier in developing infrastructural facilities in North East region. “Whether it is road construction, expansion of railways or improvement of waterways, through Pradhan Mantri Gati Shakti, we are committed to strengthen the pace of development. We have also made a lot of progress in the field of energy. We have ensured the progress in Solar and Hydel Projects, and have done the work of providing electricity in every nook and corner.”

Underlining the Telecom revolution made by India by joining select countries where 5G facilities have been introduced, the defence minister assured the people of expanding the IT and TELECOM facilities to every nook and corner of the North Eastern states. 

“This will ensure economic development, good governance and public welfare. I have full faith that due to the hardworking nature of the young generation of North East, and the facilities given by the government for Ease of Doing Business, the North East region is moving towards a golden future,“ Rajnath Singh said.

The defence minister further said that building of New India can be possible only with bold policy reforms, world class infrastructure and top class talent. 

“Through health, education, environment, sports, rural development, employment and small-scale industries, we are committed to the development of each and every citizen of the North East. The efforts of the people of the North East have a very important role to play in the motto of our government, ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas and Sabka Vishwas’”.
