Home Minister Amit Shah today virtually inaugurated projects worth 52 crore including 42 VR laboratories in 42 government higher secondary and secondary schools, Atal Tinkering labs in nine government higher secondary schools, a 12.5 MV power substation at Chiephobozou in Kohima district, a Trekking and base camp at Mt. Saramati and a two-lane RCC bridge over Doyang river near Governor’s Camp at Liphayan in Wokha district which was earlier asked to be cancelled by the Nagaland Foothills Road Co-ordination Committee.
Shah while delivering his speech said that he hopes that the five projects which have been inaugurated today worth 52 cr rupees will bring a revolutionary change in the sector of education, tourism and electricity in Nagaland.
The Minister also acknowledged how Nagaland is standing today in the eve of election and maintained that BJP has an existing alliance in the state.
“I firmly believe that we will contest elections and we will see to it that we will come to power in full majority and we will have a developed Nagaland – a Nagaland that is prosperous and happy,” he said.
Speaking on how PM Modi’s vision of mainstreaming the North-East is bearing fruit now, he said that PM Modi has made sure that every Union Minister of GoI visits the North-East once in a fortnight. He then stated how the Prime Minister himself has in the last 8 and half years visited the North East 51 times which is a record in itself. Shah also claimed how large infrastructure projects have been allotted to North East India under PM Modi so that NE becomes a saga of development.
Following this, Shah held meetings with BJP leaders of Nagaland.
