The Bharatiya Janata Party is gearing up to make the public meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, slated for February 24, a grand success.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in the state of Arunachal Pradesh on Thursday, to inaugurate the Dorjee Khandu State Convention Centre in Itanagar.

"If you travel to Arunachal Pradesh for a day, you will hear more Jai Hind than you will hear after travelling the entire country for a week", he added. "This is the level of patriotism here".

"Since 2014, hundred-plus visits have been made to the North Eastern States by union ministers along with their officers to resolve issues pertaining to respective states", Khandu said.

The state government started work for Rs 650 crore two years after the Centre allocated Rs 988 crore under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana, and as a result many important roads could not be built, Modi said. "I will push the private sector to have their general body meeting here". He requested the Prime Minister to consider sympathetically to the proposal for a greenfield airport at Hollongi near here.

However, it is noteworthy that the autopsy report of Madhusudhan Deb, a booth president of BJP in the Ramnagar Assembly constituency who the prime minister claimed was killed, stated the death as "suicidal in nature".

Modi also told the crowd about the importance of Health education and the building of Medical colleges so that students have enough facilities to study medicine in the state and around the nation.

Citing connectivity as the only means to all round development of the state, the Chief Minister emphasized the need to have an airport in the state capital. "Presently scheme worth Rs 18,000 Crore is undergoing in Arunachal Pradesh".
