Prime Minister Narendra Modi who decided to conduct hundred rallies all over the country is about to visit Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Tripura on Saturday. Modi with his will to enkindle the oppositions is heading towards north-eastern states today.  Modi’s visit to the three states is a part of Bharatiya Janata Party’s ten state visit in five days.

It is to be noted that the crystal clear purpose of the BJP’s visit is to win hearts and votes in the three states. Modi will also inaugurate several projects and hold various rallies in the state.

Prime Minister will begin his journey with the inauguration of greenfield airport at Hollongi in Parum Pare district of Arunachal Pradesh. He will also give instructions to start the work for strategic tunnel in Sela, which will reduce travel time to the India-China border town of Tawang by over an hour. Prime Minister will launch a new Doordarshan channel for the state, aptly named 'DD Arun Prabha'. PM Modi will also dedicate the 110 MW Pare hydroelectric power plant to the nation. He will also lay the foundation stone for a permanent campus of the prestigious Film and Television Institute of India at Jote and inaugurate the upgraded Tezu Airport.

In Assam PM will inaugurate a gas processing plant in Tinsukia and an LPG capacity augmentation of mounted storage vessel in Guwahati. The prime minister will also lay the foundation stone of NRL bio-refinery at Numaligarh, as well as the 729-km long Barauni-Guwahati gas pipeline. The PM will also lay the foundation stone for the Northeast Gas Grid which will help in the uninterrupted supply of natural gas in the state.

Modi will also visit Tripura where he will inaugurate Garjee-Belonia railway line to the nation by unveiling a plaque. He will also inaugurate the new complex of the Tripura Institute of Technology and unveil the statue of Maharaja BirBikram Kishore ManikyaBahadur at Maharaja BirBikram Airport in Agartala.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be going on various states in the five days. PM Modi is also facing resistance by activists in the northeastern states over the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, which commits to providing Indian citizenship and full constitutional rights to non-Muslims who came and settled in India after facing persecution in neighbouring countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan. The bill has provisions for Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs and Christians but it does not include Muslims. This decision by the Centre has led to allegations of religious discrimination from rights activists as well as political parties.
