IMPHAL, October 20: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) sees the North eastern states of India as a potential game changer in the upcoming 2014 parliamentary election, said Nirmala Sitharaman, national spokesperson BJP.

The BJP spokesperson stated this during a public lecture on the theme “Parliamentary Election of 2014: What it means for the Northeast”, held at the Tribal Research Institute auditorium hall today.

The first is to dwell into aspects of what the North-eastern states has to do to have significant impact and the second is to retrospect and to speak out as what the significant gain availed to the people.

According to her, the NE states have shown great sense of dedication, participation and contribution in the Indian democracy for the past 60 years yet it has been deprived of meaningful development to its people in term of self-sustenance.

“I am shocked, a state like Manipur which has endowed its natural resources, talents, cultures has not being given full attention,” exclaimed Nirmala.

Apart from having failed to provide with vital communications and in the connectivity sector like railway, increasing airports etc, the Congress government has failed to tap the potential of youths in NE, claimed Nirmala.

Adding that talented youths of NE are today languishing, Nirmala opined that it is time to think out of the box to accommodate all the shortcomings of the regions.

People of the north east have to retrospect and to speak out what have the congress have done for the people despite being given enough times, contended Nirmala.
