Recalling that at a meeting of chief ministers in Delhi, he had sought 200 policewomen from each of the eight NE states for posting on deputation for two years in his state, he regretted "...but nobody sent me those personnel.... Today I again invite all the North East states to send me those 200 policewomen from each state."  

He sought 1,600 policewomen for posting in Gujarat for two years.

Modi said that the posting of the policewomen in his state would lead to their families visiting Gujarat while people from Gujarat could visit the NE which would lead to national integration.
