    He also said that the people in the Northeast now do not feel that Delhi is a distant place. “Now the government is at their doorstep. Our Ministers and officials are regularly visiting the region”, he added.

    Besides, the PM said his Government worked on providing electricity, railway connectivity, mobile connectivity and various other aspects of the development of the region.

    Referring to the recently signed Bodo Accord, Modi said that it had been done by bringing on all stakeholders together with a sincere effort to resolve the decades-old crisis. “Mere procrastination of the issue resulted in the deaths of at least 40000 people in the decades-old unrest,” he added.

    Modi further said, “However this time we have brought all the stakeholders together and the accord is clear that there are no more pending issues of the crisis.”

    Earlier, speaking on the newly enacted Citizenship Amendment Act, Modi assured the house that the Act will not affect any citizen of the country including the Muslims. He accused the Congress of spreading misinformation about the law and also targeted Pakistan for attempting to influence the Muslims of India.
