    Preserving Rich Cultural Identity Of Northeast Is Priority Of Govt: Amit Shah

    Union Home Minister lays foundation stone of Karbi Bhawan and Dimasa Bhawan

    Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that overall development of the Northeast region is the priority of the Government. He said that the country is proud of its culture and the aim is to take forward Northeast while preserving its rich cultural identity, along with its development.

    “The development of the region has curbed terrorism and brought peace in the region. The government believes in development work to reach tribals, instead of tribals reaching to the development,” Shah said.

    He was addressing at the foundation stone laying ceremony of Karbi Bhawan and Dimasa Bhawan of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council, Diphu and North Cachar Hills Autonomous Council, Haflong, at Dwarka in New Delhi on August 19th, 2019.

    Shah said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given maximum time to the people of Northeast for their development. “After 40 years of visit by Morarji Desai, Modi chaired the North Eastern Council (NEC) meeting in Shillong, as Prime Minister. The Northeast region lagged behind in development for many years, which gained momentum after the Government under the leadership of Modi,” he said.

    Speaking about the Karbi Bhawan and Dimasa Bhawan, Shah said that these two bhawans will be constructed at a cost of Rs 130 crore and they will give an identity to their unique culture on the world map. He said that with this initiative, a long-pending work which was initiated in the year 2011, has now been completed. He added that these bhawans will help youth from Northeast to understand the world which will enable them to compete with the world. “It is the responsibility of the Government to take the development schemes to the tribal population of the country. The aim of the Government is overall development, prosperity and peace in Northeast,” Shah said.

    DoNER Minister Jitendra Singh said that the land for the bhawans was transferred by DDA in June this year. Speaking about the initiatives taken by the Government in the last five years, the Minister said that the focus of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, after taking charge in 2014, was to develop the hitherto neglected areas and bring them at par with other regions.
