He stated that PM has taken several initiatives to bring the North East into the mainstream of India. He stated that Modi has visited the various states of the Northeast more than 51 times in the last eight years and has also made a very successful effort to connect this region with the mainstream of India by granting large infrastructure projects to the Northeast, which has yielded results.


Amit Shah stated that the funds allocated to Nagaland by the Government of India under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi have increased fourfold from 2014 to 2022 when compared to the previous central government's allocation from 2004 to 2014. He stated that the 15th Finance Commission has made a provision of Rs. 4,773 crore for Nagaland in 2022-23, whereas only Rs. 1,283 crore was allocated in 2009-10, and that Nagaland has also received special assistance of Rs. 219 crore in 2021-22.

Fifteen national highway projects totaling over 266 kilometres and costing Rs. 4,127 crore have been inaugurated. He stated that the Jal Jeevan Mission has provided tap water to 2.18 lakh families in the state's inaccessible areas. Aside from that, the Government of India is covering up to Rs. 5 lakh in medical expenses for over three lakh people through the Ayushman Yojana. Shah stated that the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana is providing housing to 54,636 families, with 15,000 of these homes already completed.
