Guwahati, Nov 30 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday sought people's consent for an India-Bangladesh land swap deal which he said will benefit Assam.

Modi, who Saturday began a three-day visit to the northeast, said this at a public rally at Sarusajai Stadium here.

"There will be no compromise on Assam's security," he said.

"I know the sentiments of the people of Assam. I assure you that I am going to use the proposed land swap deal for the benefit of Assam."

The prime minister said he would use the deal to stop illegal infiltration into Assam from Bangladesh.

"It may seem a loss for Assam but I will make such arrangements that it benefits Assam in the long run," he said.
