Not borders of disputes, we’re building corridors of development in the NE,” said PM Modi in Shillong in his address at the North Eastern Council meeting.

  • “I congratulate all brothers and sisters of Meghalaya on the connectivity, education, skill development and employment schemes that are being dedicated to the state. It is a coincidence that when the football world cup final is happening, I am addressing football fans on a football ground.
