Home Minister Amit Shah is on a tour of Assam after West Bengal, the leading state of North-East. Shah reached the popular Kamakhya temple in Assam on Sunday morning. Due to this, Assam CM Sarbananda Sonowal and Health Minister Hemant Biswa Sharma were also present with him. After visiting the goddess Kamakhya, he reached Manipur's capital Imphal from Guwahati and laid the foundation stone of many schemes. In Manipur, Shah is also scheduled to meet civil society people. He will return to Delhi from Manipur today.
He said that the North East was given Rs 89168 crore every year but we have increased it to Rs 313375 crore annually. He said that the Congress performed only Bhoomi Pujan at every place but no work was completed. It was a boon for us. We are completing and inaugurating the work. Our leader Jitendra Singh is busy cutting lace these days.
Amit Shah also said that more development is to be done in the state in the coming days. Central Sports University and Forensic College will be formed in Manipur. There are 1186 startups started in Manipur, which is a major achievement. In Imphal, Amit Shah further said, "I know you are tired and have forgotten the demand of ILP. In 2019 we have released it to the state. This will provide security to the public and the Prime Minister has taken the route for the same". Shah further said that this area used to have flooded earlier but now there is a flood of development. The Northeast was known for separatism and violence but in the last 6 years, all terrorist organizations have laid down one weapon after another. Violence has decreased. I hope the rest of the organizations will also leave the violence and join the mainstream.
