July 23, 2020: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has showered praises on the Northeast and said it has the potentiality to become the nation's growth engine.



While laying foundation of a water supply project in Manipur on Thursday, he said “The Northeast has the potential to become the growth engine of the country. Day by day my faith is getting deeper because peace is now being established in the entire region. The mantra of peace, progress and prosperity is echoing in the Northeast."



"Northeast India is a great symbol of India's natural, cultural diversity and cultural strength. In such a situation, tourism gets a lot of strength when modern infrastructure is built. Tourism potential of North East including Manipur is still unexplored," said the PM.



“While blockades in Manipur have become a part of history, Assam has witnessed a phase of violence for decades. In Tripura and Mizoram too, youth have abandoned the path of violence. Now Bru-Reang refugees are moving towards a better life,” he further said.
