On the contribution of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for national integration with a special focus on the North East region, he said, “For a long time, the region was largely ignored and cut off from the rest of the country. However, in the last decade or so, especially under the Prime Ministership of Shri Narendra Modiji, the region has become much closer to mainland India in terms of development, communication and integration”.
The Governor also spoke about the positives of the Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat programme, which aims to promote interaction between people of different states. He further added that the best way to break down barriers between people is through direct communication and interaction. Therefore, cultural exchange programmes are beneficial for bringing about mutual understanding and fostering valuable national integration.
