Modi ji visited the Northeast more than 60 times since becoming prime minister of India, which is far beyond than any other Prime Ministers. Mizoram, the beautiful state of India, has an opportunity to explore growth and development by voting BJP to power and experience the development led governance as is witnessed in other states. Modi ji’s special focus on building infrastructure has made a tremendous growth proposition for the region to act as a springboard of development. Mizoram stands to gain tremendously with the newly opened Sittwe Port which is part of the Kaladan Multi Modal Transit Transport project. Mizoram is poised to become the conduit for the new age of progress and development for the region.”
