Speaking to the media during his visit, the Defence Minister said that Manipur will be Congress-mukt post elections as the relevance of the grand old party has been lost. He added that the BJP does not see the Congress as a political force.

He further added that the militancy and insurgency in Manipur are almost over under the Chief Minister N Biren Singh-led BJP government in the state.

The defence minister said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a special focus on the development of the Northeast. Rajnath Singh highlighted that the Prime Minister has time and again ensured development schemes reach this part of the nation.
