Amit Shah said, '“I have clarified in Parliament that this is not going to happen and I am saying it again today in the presence of eight chief ministers of North East that the Centre will not touch Article 371”,
Amit Shah said, 'I am confident that the development under the leadership of PM Modi will give you a better place. Today 8 CMs are sitting here, they do not even have one from the Congress Party. There has been a decrease in terrorist activities in the North East. The one who puts down the weapon can come along. We have adopted a policy of zero tolerance towards those who have weapons in their hands. By 2022, eight states of the North East will be equipped with the rail facility.
