Supply Scheme and laid the foundation stone of a 132KV transmission line before declaring the ‘Festival of Arunachal’ open – to the cheers from a huge gathering. He also released a souvenir to mark the 29th Statehood Day of Arunachal Pradesh.

Stating that a rail network is the backbone of development, Modi exuded hopes that the railways will speed up Arunachal Pradesh’s development. “With the rail connectivity, I am sure tourism will increase and people will see the beauty of this land.”
Pointing out that poverty eradication cannot happen on the basis of mere slogans, he said that the projects being launched today would boost connectivity and provide electricity, which would in turn become strong weapons in the fight against poverty.
Talking about the immense hydropower potential of Arunachal Pradesh, the Prime Minister gave examples of how Nepal and Bhutan were harnessing hydropower to transform their economy, and how Himachal Pradesh had done the same for India.
He said Arunachal Pradesh could provide electricity to the entire country, and called for development of the State’s hydropower potential, simultaneously providing proper compensation to the people who get displaced by hydropower projects.
The Prime Minister revealed that the Union government is contemplating to establish six new agricultural colleges in the North East, and said the region could become a major centre for organic farming. “The North East can become organic farming capital of India,” he added.
He further shared that ‘Make in North East’ is being envisaged as an integral part of the ‘Make in India’ initiative.
“Ministers and senior officers of the Union government are now working in close coordination with the northeastern States to remove the bottlenecks in development, ” he added.
Among others, Arunachal Pradesh Governor Lt Gen (Retd) Nirbhay Sharma, Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu, Union Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha and MoS for Home Kiren Rijiju were present on the occasion. State Assembly Speaker Nabam Rebia and Home Minister Tanga Byaling were also present.

construction engineers of the NF Railway are confident of completing the Bogibeel Bridge over the Brahmaputra in early 2016 as top officials of the Railways have pulled up their socks for early completion of the same. The department has resumed construction of the remaining six pillars of the bridge and is expected to complete the same within the scheduled period.
The bridge, when competed, will provide rail connectivity between Dibrugarh and Tinsukia of Upper Assam with Dhemaji district of North Assam and Siang districts of Arunachal Pradesh.
It may be mentioned here that the Rangiya-Murkongselek railway route came up in 1962 during the Chinese Aggression for transportation and mobilisation of security forces to Arunachal Pradesh. The Rangiya-Murkongselek broad gauge line has been proposed to be extended to Pasighat in Arunachal and further to Roing, Parsuramkund, Rupai, Anjaw and other places along the Indo-China border.
The BG conversion project was one of the two major rail projects in Assam announced by the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during 2010.
