Aizawl: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday said the Northeast region is moving forward on a new path of peace, stability and development under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“Northeast is moving forward on a new path of peace, stability and development today under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi,” Shah said after inaugurating several development works and laying foundation of various projects worth Rs 2,415 crore in the North Eastern state today.

He said, “Once upon a time violence was spread by insurgent groups in the Northeast, there was lack of rail, road and air connectivity and there was no sign of development. However, in the last 9 years due to the efforts of the Government of India under the leadership of PM Modi and with the cooperation of the people, there has been peace in the region.”

He appealed to the organisations indulging in violence in the Northeast to join the mainstream and be a part of the democratic process and contribute to the development of country.

Shah said that connectivity has increased and there has been development at par with other parts of India. The government is making the entire Northeast conflict-free, insurgency-free and peaceful, he added.

“There has been a 67 per cent reduction in violent incidents, 60 per cent reduction in the death of security forces and 83 per cent reduction in the death of civilians in the Northeast in 2021 in comparison to 2014,” Shah informed.

The Home Minister further said that the PM is committed to the development of the Northeast and also informed that the Centre has increased the budget for the region.

Shah said the Centre and the Mizoram Government are committed to serve the people of the state.

“The peace established in Mizoram today is an unprecedented example of the success of India’s democracy,” the Home Minister said.

He said that Kaladan Multimodal Transit Transport Project will connect Mizoram and Myanmar and it will open up immense business opportunities for Mizoram.

Shah further said that the Centre would leave no stone unturned to explore the immense potential in Mizoram in the fields of tourism, bamboo cultivation and solar energy.
