Speaking about the achievements of the Modi government since it came to power in 2014, Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said, "The mantra given by our dynamic Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modiji, for the overall and holistic development of India and its citizens is 'Sabka Vikas, Sabka Prayash'. With this mantra, the government continues to work on  top priority to further ease the living of every citizen. The government has launched many welfare schemes like Jal Jeevan Mission, PM Awas Yojana, Ujjwala scheme, Saubhagya scheme, PM Kisan scheme, PM Bima Fasal Yojana, Ayushman Bharat, Mission Indradhanush, PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana, Jan Dhan Yojana and many more which has helped the common people immensely."

Highlighting the role of the Northeast as the new engine of growth for India, Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said, "Connectivity within Northeast has become tremendously efficient in the last eight years. The focused approaches to building intra-state and intra-regional connectivity in the Northeast and its states have boosted the connectivity in logistics and transport. The schemes like Udan have given wings to the aspirations of the people of the Northeast. The maiden commercial flights between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, using the Made In India Dornier planes, is a huge step forward in the region. The flights connect Dibrugarh-Pasighat and Tezu-Lilabari sectors. The big infrastructure projects like the completion of long pending Bogibeel Bridge and Dhola Sadiya bridge over the Brahmaputra; the ongoing construction of world's tallest Girder rail bridge in Imphal-Jiribam line; the record length of roads constructed within Arunachal Pradesh and northeast or resurging the waterways transport to boost the economic and business potential of the region are all testament of revolutionary connectivity long aspired by the people.

The people of Arunachal Pradesh are happy with the access to the huge Indian Railway network when Prime Minister Narendra Modi brought the Naharlagun railway station into the railway map of the country by introducing direct trains to Delhi. While these all will help people in their ease of living, we should also note that this is going to unlock the huge tourism potential that Arunachal Pradesh and the Northeast region has to offer. The rich diversity of flora in the region can also help tap the huge potential in the Ayush sector.
Concluding his interaction with the Press, Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said, "As we continue our journey to build a strong, prosperous & new India, all efforts are being taken to accelerate development of Arunachal Pradesh as well as the North-east India so that it powers the growth engine. Arunachal Pradesh is blessed by the almighty with picturesque beauty and natural bounty. Its true value in tourism can only be unlocked when all of us join hands and continue to work towards improving connectivity, health services, skill development etc. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi ji, we must pledge to the call of 'Sabka Vikas, Sabka Prayas.' We must continue our journey onward and upward."
