On 26th May, 4 years of Modi Govt’s successful completion produced many positive outcomes which is even visible in tiny Tripura.

Prime Minister Modi needs to lead India at this crucial juncture as country is facing massive challenges from China, Pakistan in terms Defence threats, Economic problems, Terrorism apart from various domestic problems.

India’s problems are multifold which cannot be handled by immature & inept politicians like Rahul Gandhi and remaining opposition brigade including Yechury, Mayawaiti, Laloo, Akhilesh, Mamata and many others.

None of these opposition politicians got any nationalistic vision rather than petty goals mostly playing to masses.

Modi Govt’s gift of Agartala-New Delhi Rajdhani Express, Broad Gauge Railway, establishing 3rd Internet Gateway to many other rapid developments raised hopes after 25 years misrule by CPI-M.

CPI-M did irreparable damage to Tripura’s economy in 25 years by engaging in organized corruption, promoting cadre-raj, massive unemployment, also began the begging-bowl culture to Central Govt for every State Govt failures.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of economically developed North Eastern region already fast-paced infrastructure developments in this neglected region. Central Govt’s top priorities reflected in its rapid expansion of Railways, National Highways, Bridges, Airports in past 4 years.

Prime Minister stated that his government’s primary stress has been on creating infrastructure that included roads, railways, aviation, waterways and bridges, Prime Minister Modi said he believed in giving permanency to development. ”Balanced development is possible if we create the twin rails of physical and social infrastructure. We don’t believe in temporary measures. Instead, we want to fulfil those dreams which can take the country forward with permanent development,” PM said.

Due to Modi’s vision, India, Thailand and Myanmar are working on a 1,400-kilometre long highway that will link India with Southeast Asia by land for the first time in decades, giving a boost to trade and cultural exchanges between the three countries. Indian Ambassador to Thailand Bhagwant Singh Bishnoi said 73 bridges in Myanmar, built more than seven decades ago during World War II, were being renovated with funding from India to allow vehicles to cross the highway safely. The road will help in transportation of goods and further development of SMEs in North East India, he said, adding the tri-nation highway exemplifies India's "Act East" policy.

Modi’s Act-East policy paying rich dividends to Tripura and much neglected NE region with new infrastructures, connectivity to South Asian countries, integrating highways and business opportunities.

After Mumbai & Chennai, establishing India’s 3rd Internet Gateway at Agartala was a huge gift to Tripura but unfortunately inept Manik Sarkar led CPI-M Govt failed to reap any economic benefits, neither utilized golden opportunity to establish IT Industries / ITES – IT enabled service sector using Bangladesh, South East Asia markets.

India’s main enemy in short-term is Pakistan but long-term enemy is China. Pakistan bleeding itself with huge loans and expenses to run organized terrorism & fall powerful army. Also other than narcotics business and Saudi Arabia’s donations, Pakistan’s future is bleak so India can deal it whatever way it wants in future. In contrast, China is focused on grabbing the whole South East Asian economy by expanding its business, military ties, soft loans to developing infrastructure in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal.

To counter China’s economic, military aggression – India is developing eastern sector, rapid infrastructures so that rich economy in North East will counter-blance China's influence and home-grown insurgencies in various States. .

India already developing trade routes to Bangladesh sea ports via South Tripura (Feni Bridge) in addition to another Myanmar's Dawei deep-sea port which will enhance regional trades in North East.

Myanmar's Dawei deep-sea port and industrial estate project near the Thai border is also expected to help further integrate eastern India with South East Asian countries. The planned port can be linked up with India's Chennai port as well as Thailand's Laem Chabang Port on the other side of the ocean.

Modi’s ‘Act-East’ Policy is driving huge infrastructure development in NE region benefitting Tripura –Assam, Arunachal, Manipur all on the right track for rapid development.

Narendra Modi said proudly that “We have a dream of creating a new India by 2022. We want to bring about a work culture. The younger generation has realised that this government gives due respect to work. Women have found dignity. People have realised that this government respects honesty,”

I request Tripura’s BJP leadership to emulate Narendra Modi’s vision, his dynamism, his work culture rather than behaving like CPI-M era unfits lManik Dey, Manik Sarkar who spent more time on lecturing people rather than doing any good work for State.
