Mentioning the country’s largest Rs 27,000 crore semiconductor facility that is coming up Assam’s Jagiroad, PM Modi said, “Today, Assam is creating new records of development. The country’s largest river bridge, Bhupen Hazarika Setu, and the country’s longest rail-road bridge, Bogibeel Bridge, are in Assam. AIIMS was opened in Guwahati and new medical colleges were built in Barpeta and Kokrajhar.”

“Work is also going on at a fast pace on the plan to open cancer hospitals in five districts of Assam, and six new engineering colleges are also coming up in the state,” he added.

The Prime Minister also mentioned that to meet the energy needs of this region, the North East Gas Grid is being build at a cost of Rs 90,000 crore and Barauni Guwahati Pipeline has been dedicated to the country under Urja Ganga Gas Pipeline project.

“These are not just development figures but examples of everyone’s efforts,” he added.
