Amit Shah – Union Home Minister:
Chaired a meeting to review the operation of the North Eastern Space Application Centre (NESAC) in Umiam, Meghalaya. NESAC plays a key role in stimulating the overall growth of the North-Eastern region by using space science and technology.
I applaud the efforts and dedication of Team NESAC and want to assure them that PM Narendra Modi led central government is committed to providing advanced technology support to the region, that can transform the lives of our people of the North-Eastern states.
Mapping of forest gap areas, expansion of the land area for horticulture development, Identification & rejuvenation of wetlands, diversion of floodwater and assessment of Bamboo resources for livelihood needs are a few among many key ideas that were discussed during the meeting.
Laid the foundation stone of the Multipurpose Conference Centre and Exhibition facility in North Eastern Space Application Centre (NESAC), Umiam, Meghalaya.
Inaugurated the Inter-State Bus Terminus (ISBT) in Shillong, Meghalaya. Connectivity in the NE states has always been the top priority of the NDA govt.
This will further ease the people of Meghalaya and the neighbouring states. I congratulate CM Conrad Sangma Ji for this.
