After taking charge as MoS External Affairs, Rajkumar Ranjan Singh, a senior BJP leader from Manipur shared his opinion on several issues concerning the northeastern region.

This is his maiden visit to Nagland after being appointed as Union Minister of State on July 7.

Speaking to Northeast Live, the Union Minister underlined the importance of the Act East policy, which he claimed is very close to PM Narendra Modi’s heart. Elaborating on the initiative, he said that strengthening of historical and cultural links with Bangladesh and Myanmar is one of the key aims of the policy.

Singh also claimed that human resources from the Northeast, particularly nursing students are most sought after in Japan and Korea. In order to encourage this endeavour, he added that Korean and Japanese language training will soon be imparted in specific nursing institutes in the Northeast.

The Minister further said that the new Education policy initiated by the Modi government provides for flexibility and multidisciplinary approach which was missing in the earlier policy. He added that that the academic bank of credit scheme will immensely help students.
