Connectivity in Northeast India is surging ahead on new path of development

Deployment of aircrafts, small choppers also formed an essential part of development in the connectivity sector.

PM Modi's vision of India's Act East Policy is turning successful with its steady implementation in the North East. The Central Government is leaving no stone unturned to make the region emerge as important hub in the nation's engagement with South East Asian countries.

Focusing on Northeast's role in paving a gateway to South East Asia, various schemes and multifaceted projects have been introduced in the recent past to facilitate the growth in railways, roadways, telecom sectors and others.

Talking about the development of connectivity, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said, "We need connectivity for development and that is the reason PM Modi implemented the Act East Policy to connect northeast to South East Asia and because of his blessings this has become a reality. Every terrain and hilly areas or river that was not connected earlier will get connected with the mainland now."
