“Congress has a separatist agenda for the northeast, whereas Modi has kept this region close to his heart,” he said.

The Prime Minister also mentioned the development initiatives of the ruling dispensation. He said, “Earlier, there were no roads in Assam, while in the last 10 years, more than 2,500 km of national highways have been built in the state. At least 2000 km of roads are being constructed in Darang, Udalguri, Korajhar, etc., areas.”

PM Modi mentioned the Central government’s Lakhpati Didi scheme. He said, “We have pledged to make three crore women in the country as Lakhpati Didis. We shall make them drone pilots, and women from Assam will take advantage of this initiative.”

The Prime Minister also asserted that the BJP government’s decision to scrap triple talaq has benefited the Muslim society in Assam.

“As we have removed the triple talaq by law, along with my Muslim sisters, their other members of the family are also relieved after this decision,” he said.

PM Modi also mentioned that he has devoted every moment to fulfilling the aspirations of the people of this country. He said, “That is why I say 24 x 7 for 2047.”

The Prime Minister also warned people that voting for Congress does not mean that the opposition can form the government at the Centre, but support and vote for the BJP will make India a developed country in the world.
