In a series of tweets, the Prime Minister said, “Our Govt is leaving no stone unturned to fulfil development aspirations of Northeast & ensure all round development.

“Tomorrow (on Tuesday) I will be in Assam where I will interact with the youth of Assam, students of IIT, NIT & central universities of the Northeast,” he said.

“A conference of State Agriculture Ministers is being held in Gangtok. Am particularly delighted that the conference is being held in Sikkim,” Modi, who will also visit an exhibition of organic products and interact with organic farmers in Gangtok, said.

“I envision the Northeast to be a hub in this,” he said.

The Prime Minister said the Conference of Agriculture Ministers will focus on sustainable development, organic farming and ecotourism, “areas we are giving priority to”.
