Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Thursday said that the mandate is a reflection of people’s faith in the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has given a voice to the marginalized though his principle of sabka saath, sabka vikas.

“With his principle of sabka saath, sabka vikas, the Prime Minister has given a voice to the marginalized. Through his value based politics, honesty, integrity and hard work, he has rekindled patriotic fervour amongst the Indians and materialized the vision of a corruption free India. The Prime Minister has strengthened national security and heralded a new age of peace and prosperity in the country,” Sonowal said while thanking the people of Assam and the country as a whole.

“In the economic front also, India has received a major push under his leadership and the country is today recognized as a world super power,” he said while underlining the Prime Minister’s special focus for the Northeast.

Sonowal said that the Prime Minister’s vision has opened new floodgates of opportunities for development in the region.

“The Northeast, which has always been neglected by the Congress, has turned into a new growth hub of the country under the NDA government. The Act East Policy enunciated by Prime Minister Modi leads the region in scripting a new growth narrative to be the expressway of the ASEAN,” Sonowal said.

The chief minister also thanked BJP National president Amit Shah for the victory of the party in the election.

He said the strategy and wisdom of the national president inspired the party workers and catalyzed the massive victory of NDA.
