Addressing a rally in Mizoram, PM Modi lashes out at Congress for insulting Northeast India

Sashi Tharoor had earlier stated that the PM wears 'outlandish' headgears of the Northeast but says no to the Muslim skullcap.

While speaking at a rally in Mizoram, PM Modi hailed the rich cultural heritage of Mizoram and expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the people of Mizoram for welcoming him. He stated that it’s always special for him to visit the region and claimed that he has visited the Northeast 27 times now.

Extolling Mizoram’s culture, Modi said that Mizoram has a rich culture and tradition that the inhabitants of Mizoram have preserved and nurtured. Modi asserted that the BJP for the last four and a half year has worked towards recognising such myriad cultures and traditions belonging to different parts of the country.

Modi expressed anguish watching Congress leaders mocking this rich culture and traditions of Mizoram. He said Congress leaders have routinely mocked and displayed their insensitivity towards the people of the Northeast. Taking a jibe at Congress leaders, particularly Shashi Tharoor for his ‘outlandish’ remark on the Northeast’s traditional attires, Modi alleged that Congress leaders have disrespected and insulted the traditions and attires of the people of the northeast.

Mounting the attack on Congress, PM Modi further alleged that Congress leaders have abused and neglected the region of the Northeast for the most part of the history. He blamed Congress of playing ‘Divide and Rule’ and promoting dynasty politics to come into power instead of heeding the demands of the rural people and respecting and enabling them to fulfill their aspirations.

Modi said the Northeast has undergone remarkable progress under the BJP and has moved past from bandh, guns, and blockades. “The BJP government works towards both pace and the development. The development work of the Railways has grown three times during our government,” he said.
