Highlights: What PM said!
“Thousands of Northeast people lived like refugees in their own country in the past. Now, they are being rehabilitated with full facilities. People of India were afraid of coming here at one time. Now, they're pitching it as the next tourist destination,” he said.
Mahatma Gandhi used to say that whatever we gain from walking on ahimsa (non-violence) is accepted by everyone. A lot of people from Assam have accepted peace, ahimsa and democracy. They have placed the Indian Constitution at its rightful place. There were gunfights for decades. The arrival of peace to Assam is a historic moment. It is a great coincidence that it has happened when the entire country is celebrating the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi,” Modi said.
Today I have come to assure every fellow of Assam, that the anti-Assam, anti-national mentality, its supporters, the country will neither tolerate nor forgive.
Believe in your power, believe in your partner and believe in the grace of Mother Kamakhya. Mother Kamakhya's faith and blessings will take us to new heights of development.
