Prime Minister Modi said the Government has done unprecedented work to speed up development in Arunachal Pradesh and asserted that modern infrastructure is being built there considering its role from the national security perspective.
In his message to the people of Arunachal Pradesh, PM Modi said that it has been his firm belief that eastern India and particularly the northeast will be the engine of the country’s development in the 21st century. He praised Arunachal Pradesh for promoting the feeling of patriotism, social harmony and also for preserving the cultural legacy of the country.
