The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has released its manifesto today, outlining a comprehensive strategy for the development and peace in India’s Northeast region.

Central to the manifesto is the pledge to maintain peace in the Northeast by addressing issues in disturbed areas and removing the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) in a phased manner. The BJP has committed to tackling inter-state border disputes through sustained efforts, aiming for long-term resolutions.

Moreover, the manifesto emphasizes leveraging the Northeast as a strategic gateway for India’s Act East Policy. This entails a multifaceted approach encompassing connectivity, education, health, economic development, and security.

One of the standout promises is the construction of Sarovars, or reservoirs, to manage floods in the Northeast. Utilizing advanced satellite imagery, the BJP plans to identify suitable locations for these reservoirs to store excess water and mitigate the impact of floods. These reservoirs will serve multiple purposes, including irrigation and promoting water sports.

Additionally, the manifesto underscores the importance of sustainable development in the hill states of India. The BJP aims to protect and preserve the unique ecological balance of these regions while fostering their socio-economic growth. Special master plans will be crafted in collaboration with state governments and local bodies, taking into account the region’s geography, culture, and traditional practices.

It promises to strengthen border infrastructure and pledged to accelerate the development of robust infrastructure along India’s borders with China, Pakistan, and Myanmar. Technological solutions, including smarter fencing, will be introduced to enhance security measures in these areas.
