Amit Shah said that “Peace in the North East is very important for the economic development, promotion of tourism and employment in the region. The Northeast, which was once in the news due to terrorism, blockade, violence but now it is known for development, tourism, organic farming, industry and start-ups. This has been possible due to PM Narendra Modi Ji's leadership in the last 6 years”.The Union Home Minister also said that “a lot of work has been done to establish peace in the Northeast under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi.

Under this, 6 railway projects worth Rs 15,088 crore have been completed. Also, Rs 553 crore will be spent on the development of airports and about Rs 10,000 crore on 19 road projects of 869 km length”.

The Union Home Minister said, “that after Independence, the Northeast used to have 20 per cent share in the GDP of the country but now it has come down drastically”.He called for making the Northeast a tourism and industry hub and an IT and organic farming hub to increase the Northeast's participation in the country's GDP by 2024 and make it an important part of the Government of India's Act East policy. Shri Shah said that “under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi, eight states of the North East region are moving forward on the path of development and North-East will soon become a new engine of development for the country”.
