Is BJP’s outreach to North East region responsible for wider media coverage of the region?

Delhi based media had so far ignored the north-east region. News from the rest of the country occupied much of its coverage. However, after the BJP’s focused outreach and rising probability of performing well in the region, the media seems to have turned its cameras towards the north-east.

Another Twitterati felt that development issues which were hitherto not focused would get highlighted if BJP wins some of the states today in the region.

Many Twitter users remarked that ‘tyranny of distance’ for not covering the region was no longer valid and the time to make amends had arrived.

Others felt that attention of northeast region in rest of India was a good development for the entire country. They felt that northeast was important for rest of India from the point of view of defence and infrastructure development.

The outreach for the northeast region must not only involve the politicians but also media so that problems and issues of the region can be highlighted and resolved. Fortunately, this change seems to be happening in the past few years.
