# We are giving impetus to infrastructure development in Manipur. We want the state to be directly connected with India's mainstream: PM

BJP would leave no stone unturned for welfare of people of Manipur. We will undertake every possible measure for development of Manipur: PM

# Naga accord was signed one and half years ago. Was the Congress asleep that time? And, now they are spreading lies: PM Modi

# Sikkim is a small state but is progressing rapidly, but the places where Congress is ruling is not progressing

The corruption that took place in Manipur in last 15 years, we will expose everything: PM Modi

# Those who have looted the country, I assure that they won't go unpunished. Rights of common citizens would be protected: PM

# Today, wherever Congress government is there, the state lacks progress. Every BJP governed state today is progressing at fast pace: PM
