What has Himanta to share about Manmohan Singh's rare Assam visits

Himanta Biswa Sarma commends Prime Minister Modi for establishing development projects and bringing peace to the Northeast. The Assam State Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma praised the ruling BJP administration on Sunday for bringing peace to the northeast and contributing to a notable uptick in development. "The development in the Northeast today is unprecedented," Chief Minister Sarma said, addressing party members in Delhi. The efforts of the central government to bring about peace in the northeastern region are the reason for the rise in tourism inflow.

In addition, the Chief Minister complimented Prime Minister Narendra Modi for bringing connection to the previously isolated North East. CM Sarma cited former members of parliament and politicians who have visited Assam and other regions of the Northeast, stating, "I was a minister and Dr. Manmohan Singh was an MP from Assam when he became prime minister. "He would travel to Assam merely to present his nomination papers for the Rajya Sabha. We would also get his certificates for him. He used to vote and take part in campaigns.

He went on, "As a NE MP, he never traveled to any other NE state." His travels were restricted to Assam, where he had to go in order to submit nominations. That all changed with Modi. His frequent visits sparked conversations about NE around the nation. When discussing NE, many would remark that Modi holds NE in high regard. There has been a significant decrease in racial discrimination against residents and students in the Northeast. Nothing on social media about racial discrimination. People are aware that the Northeast is a key part of the nation.
