Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for putting an end to differences between the Northeast and the nation’s capital, Delhi. Commenting on the golden jubilee of the Ramakrishna Mission Ashram in Arunachal Pradesh, Shah said that Modi has emphasized the northeastern languages while nobody else cares.
Addressing a function at the ashram in Narotam Nagar in Tirap district, Shah said, “During 2014-2022, Prime Minister Modi ended differences between Northeast and Delhi.
In Modi’s administration – whose Bharatiya Janata Party has been in power at the Center since 2014 – the Bodoland issue has also been resolved, Shah said. Talking about the Assam-Arunachal border dispute, he said those issues have been largely resolved.
Amit Shah declared, “Bodoland’s problem has been solved. 60 percent of border issues between Arunachal Pradesh and Assam have been resolved. The goal is to develop all eight states.”
Assam shares an 804 km border with Arunachal Pradesh.
Allegations that residents of one state have encroached on another state’s land have led to heated controversies over the years and violence on more than one occasion.
Amit Shah has visited Arunachal Pradesh for two days. Shah was accompanied by Union Law Minister Kiran Rijiju, an Arunachal (Western) Lok Sabha MP.
Amit Shah will be attending various events during his visit and will be launching several development projects.
Two days (tomorrow) of his visit, Shah is expected to review security and development initiatives and interact with officials from the Army, ITBP, SSB, Assam Rifles, Border Road Organization and National Highways Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited (NHIDLC). .
They participate in Bada Khana – a collective feast for all ranks of Army and CAPF personnel.
