अरुणाचल को एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन से दिल्ली से जोड़ने का काम भी 7 दशकों बाद हो पाया है और जो बोगीबिल पूल वर्षों से लटका हुआ था उसके बनने से पूर्वी जिलों कि ईटानगर से दूरी 16 घंटे की बजाय मात्र 4-5 घंटे ही रह गयी है : प्रधानमंत्री @narendramodi #NorthEast4Modi https://t.co/l9wLaBhf5p pic.twitter.com/Qdt59QRZfN

PM Modi stated that after 7 decades of independence, Arunachal is now featured in India’s railway map. He mentioned that the Bogibeel bridge has reduced the travel time from eastern districts from 16 hours to a few hours.
PM Mentioned that his government has made sure that the ministers in central government regularly visit the state and connect to the people and ensure effective governance.
PM Modi stated that the ‘Naamdars’ of Congress and their ‘Durbaris’ knew that Arunachal Pradesh needs modern infrastructure and rapid development, but they were so busy in ‘Malai’ that they have forgotten to do ‘Bhalai’.
PM Modi stated that the rapid development of the state is proof that 5 years of a mindset of service is much more effective in transforming a state than 55 years of greed for power.
5 साल का सेवाभाव और 55 साल के सत्तासुख का फर्क यही होता है।

PM Modi slammed Congress saying that it has promised food rations and indulged in corruption there too. He said they ate away the rations meant for the poor. PM Modi added that corruption is the Fevicol that binds all parties in the Mahagathbandhan.
Taking a jibe at the 5000 crores National Herald scam, PM Modi stated that people out on bail in corruption scams where they had earned thousands of crores by letting government property on rent are now busy abusing the chowkidar.
He added that the corrupt Congress leaders neither believe in the country’s youth nor they trust the capability of our soldiers. He stated that an ordinary Indian, be it a poor farmer, labourer, or anyone, feels proud when the nation achieves something significant or out defence forces do something heroic. But it is only Congress’ corrupt leaders who become sad and frustrated at the achievements of the nations.
He stated that though the Indian public has rejected the corrupt leaders, they are being celebrated in Pakistan. Their love for Pakistan is so deep that the question surgical strikes but support the statements of Pakistan made against India.
Hailing the achievements of the women of Arunachal Pradesh, PM Modi stated that the whole nation is proud when women of this state are inducted in Delhi Police’s SWAT group and scale Mount Everest.
PM Modi mentioned the ridicule and mocking coming from his political opponents about the costumes and adornments that the PM had sported in his visits to North Eastern India. He stated that he respects the local culture and traditions and for him, the costumes are a matter of respect and love.
