The union home minister further added that the gap created by the Centre in the last 70 years has reduced drastically and that Assam as well as the Northeast has come to the mainstream. Shah also added that the promise of 1 lakhs jobs to the youths of Assam will definitely be fulfilled besides announcing that a new Forensic Science University would be set up soon.

Meanwhile, BJP national president JP Nadda lauded Chief Himanta Biswa Sarma for spearheading the setting up of the newly constructed state of the art party headquarter, which is equipped with social media centre, research centre, media centre, library besides other amenities. During his speech, Nadda said BJP has to attain new heights in the regions and maintained that it is the only party with liberal thoughts and secular in character.
