Amit Shah highlighted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not only focused on the development of Assam but has also prioritized the progress of the entire Northeast region. Shah emphasized that the fortune of the country is linked to the prosperity of the Northeast. Developing Assam and the Northeast is crucial for the overall development of the nation. The Prime Minister has successfully removed The Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act from 80% of Assam, contributing to the establishment of peace in the region. Amit Shah pointed out the disparity in allocation between the UPA government, led by Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh, and the current government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

However, Shah highlighted the efforts of CM Himanta Biswa Sarma in eradicating child marriage in Assam and the Uttarakhand government’s introduction of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Amit Shah highlighted Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge’s questioning of the relevance of Kashmir, emphasizing that the entire nation considers Kashmir an integral part of India.  Shah recalled his childhood slogan, “Kutch ho ya Guwahati, Apna Desh Apni Maati”, contrasting it with Congress’s historical actions such as Jawaharlal Nehru ceding Assam instead of fighting during the China attack. But now, Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, there has been a significant transformation. China cannot capture even an inch of Indian territory. Shah emphasized that the people of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh cannot forget the 1962 conflict between India and China. However, under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s governance, the Indian Army stood firm against China in Doklam for 45 days, ultimately compelling them to retreat.
Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah emphasized that Assam serves as the hub of the Northeast, and its development is intricately linked with that of the entire region and the nation as a whole. Prime Minister Narendra Modi pledged in 2014 to facilitate the development of the Northeast, fulfilling a commitment to uplift the region. Shah underscored that Prime Minister  Narendra Modi holds the distinction of being the only Prime Minister to have visited the Northeast region more than 70 times, reflecting his commitment to its development. Additionally, Union ministers have collectively visited the region over 700 times, demonstrating the government’s dedication to the Northeast’s progress.  Amit Shah emphasized that it is now the time for the Northeast to secure all the seats for the NDA alliance. Assam particularly aims to win 12 out of 14 seats, with a significant victory margin of over 5 lakh votes each.
