NEW DELHI, DEC 8 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 12/8/2019 12:32:09 PM IST

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged the police chiefs of the North Eastern states to create a conducive environment for the development programmes in their respective states.

Addressing the DGP/IGP conference at Pune, Modi laid emphasis on North East as the Prime Minister expressed his special interest for the development of the North Eastern states, which is critical for the government’s Act East Policy.

Prime Minister said he recognised the pulls and pressures confronting police officers in their day-to-day discharge of duties. “However, he said whenever they are in doubt they should remember the ideals and the spirit with which they appeared for the civil services exams and continue to work in national interest, keeping in mind the welfare of the weakest and poorest sections of society,” the statement said.

A statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office said that PM Modi was of the view that technology provides an effective weapon to ensure proactive policing that factors in the feedback of the common man.

Meanwhile, in view of the Indo-Japan annual summit, scheduled to be held in Guwahati from December 15-16, security has been beefed up in Guwahati.

This region was identified as the perfect spot outside New Delhi, as it is has become one of the most important destinations for Japanese investments and as part of the Centre’s ‘Act East Policy’. 

Earlier this year the Japanese government announced that it was planning to invest about Rs 13,000 crore in old and new projects in different states of North East Region.

However, bandh calls and a series of protests announced against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill across the North East has left officials worried ahead of the summit, to be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also likely to visit Manipur along with the Japanese PM. The PMs are likely to visit the “Imphal Peace Memorial” constructed by the Japanese government at Maibam Lotpa Ching, Bishnupur district.
