PM Narendra Modi in Northeast Highlights: Addressing a rally in Assam during its two-day Northeast tour, Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured the crowd that the Citizenship Bill, which has triggered protests in the state, will not cause problems in the state. Earlier Saturday, Modi had inaugurated development projects worth Rs 4000 crore and laid the foundation stone for construction of greenfield airport at Hollongi, in Arunachal Pradesh.
Modi arrived in Assam Friday where he was shown black flags in protest against the citizenship bill. In Tripura, three MPs of opposition CPI (M) announced that they will boycott Modi’s programme. The Prime Minister halted overnight in Guwahati, before travelling to Arunachal Pradesh on Saturday morning. He travelled back to Assam to address a rally and will later travel to Tripura to address another rally in Agartala.
