In ensuing days, we must continue to work with unity and commitment to strengthen our organisational foundation."
Highlighting the development of the Northeast under PM Modi's government, the Union Minister said that the Northeast has scripted a new horizon of progress as it has become the new engine of growth for India.
"The benefits of the government schemes are now trickling down to the women, youth and farmers with direct benefit transfer and other policy amendments to cut down middlemen, bringing in efficiency in the governance system. This is the perfect example of how minimum government can deliver maximum governance. Similarly, the shift to Act East policy has proved to be the catalyst of change as the region becomes an important region which is bridging India and South East Asia," he said.
"The rural economy has also strengthened as considerable movement is happening in the industrialisation, information technology in the country. Thanks to the long term policies as envisioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the quality of life and standard of living of people has improved considerably," the Minister added.

"Gurujona laid the foundation of unity and spiritualism with the establishment of Naamghars. Naamghar is an inseparable part of Assam's social life as it is the centre of peace and prosperity. The peace, power, knowledge and culture emanate from Bhakti. Bhakti gives us the strength to move forward. We must continue our spiritual journey through Naamghars to keep our society relevant, spiritual and beautiful," Sarbananda Sonowal said.
"Further relaxation of AFSPA from many areas of Assam, Nagaland and Manipur is another welcome step by the Modi govt. Due to sustained and conscious effort by PM Modi has resulted in permanent peace in the region. On behalf of all the people of the region, I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the Prime Minister and Union Home Minister Amit Shah," he said.
"The dark days of violence, disturbance, and insurgency during the Congress government dispensarion have now become a thing of past due to conscious effort of the Modi government. The insurgents have chosen to reject the road of violence as they join the movement of nation building under visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. I am sure today's decision will further accelerate the development in the region in a peaceful environment," the Minister added.
