Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a rally in Manipur on Tuesday and said that the Northeastern state will become a pivotal center connecting East Asia after the completion of the Myanmar-Thailand highway.

He reasoned that tourism will grow through rail connectivity and his double-engine government has laid the foundation for 25 years of progress in the state.

Criticizing the earlier government he said that poor connectivity, inequality and lack of development in the state is Congress’ result and BJP is to be credited with putting Manipur on the rail map of India. During his speech he pointed out that Manipur is considered as “the gateway to India’s trade and business with East Asia” and reminded them of Jibiram’s association with the railways since the past five or six years.

Modi implied that thanks to his government there are no blockades or bandhs in the state anymore unlike under the rule of Congress.

He finally added that the government has brought changes to the law related to bamboo and will promote bamboo farmers and MSME’s.
