Salient Points of PM Modi’s address at the ceremony to dedicate the Tuirial Hydro Electric Power Project to the Nation in Aizawl, Mizoram on 16 Dec, 2017

During the tenure of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee significant work was done for the development of the Northeast.

We have taken forward this vision and are devoting resources for the progress of the Northeast. My ministerial colleagues are frequently visiting the Northeast

There have been over 150 Ministerial visits. Our initiative- the Ministry of DoNER at your doorstep has added impetus to the development of the Northeast. It has enabled us to understand the aspirations of the Northeast even better

Today we gather here to celebrate a significant mile-stone in the history of Mizoram: the completion and dedication of the 60 Mega-Watt Tuirial Hydropower Project

It is the first large hydropower project in Mizoram. It will boost the socio-economic development of the State

The project was first cleared by the Union Government of PM Vajpayee ji, way back in 1998 but got delayed.

The completion of this project is a reflection of our commitment to complete ongoing projects and usher in a new era of development in the North Eastern region

Besides electricity the reservoir water will also open new avenues for navigation. This will provide connectivity to remote villages. The huge reservoir, spread over an area of 45 square kilometres can also be used for development of fisheries

This project will boost eco-tourism and provide a source of assured drinking water supply

उत्तर-पूर्व को विशेष ध्यान में रखते हुए DONER मंत्रालय ने 100 करोड़ रुपए की राशि से एक वेंचर कैपिटल फंड भी बनाया है

मेरा मिजोरम के नौजवानों से आग्रह है कि वो केंद्र सरकार की इन योजनाओं का ज्यादा से ज्यादा फायदा उठाएं। यहां के नौजवान Start up की दुनिया में छा जाने का हौसला रखते हैं, क्षमता रखते हैं। भारत सरकार ऐसे नौजवानों की हैंड होल्डिंग के लिए प्रतिबद्ध है

We are betting on the skills and strengths of India’s youth. We believe in ’empower through enterprise’ – which is creating the right ecosystem for innovation and enterprise to flourish so that our land is home to the next big ideas that can transform humanity

Building a New India by 2022 requires us to work towards the twin goals of increasing economic growth as well as ensuring that the fruits of growth are shared by all

In the spirit of ‘सबका साथ, सबका विकास’ every Indian, irrespective of caste, gender, religion, class must have equal opportunities to partake in the new prosperity

Vision of New India can be realized only if fruits of development reach all. Government plans to focus on around 115 districts which are relatively backward when evaluated on various indicators. This will benefit backward districts of North Eastern States including Mizoram
