Modi added, “In Afghanistan Father Alexis Prem Kumar, who was preaching peace and God’s message was kidnapped by terrorist. After 18 months we were able to bring him back to India.”

The prime minister narrated that Judith D’Souza a woman from West Bengal working for the church in Afghanistan was kidnapped by terrorist. “After almost one month we were able to bring her back,” he said. He also talked about how Father Tom Uzhunnalil, a priest from Kottayam in Kerala, was rescued from IS.
Urging people to vote for change in Meghalaya, Modi said, “We believe in Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas. “Despite sending huge amount of money from New Delhi Meghalaya had remained under developed. There is hardly any road, where has the money gone,” he questioned.

“For roads under PMGSY we send Rs 500 Crore for construction of 1100km roads, not even half of the road is constructed. For development of roadways in Meghalaya we are investing close to Rs 10, 000,” Modi said.

Modi said, “If connectivity issue is tackled, Meghalaya will become a paradise. We are developing Shillong airport with an outlay of Rs 180 Crore. Udan scheme will hugely benefit Northeast India. There is question mark on teachers’ appointment, right from exploration to farming there is question mark on all the state government’s deeds.”

Attacking the ruling congress government, Modi said without giving commission no work is done. “My vision is transformation through transportation. Around 900 villages in the state were not electrified and we have taken measures to electrify them.”
The prime minister said that the state government has no intention to develop tourism sector in the state. The state government could not implement properly the Central scheme of affordable housing.

“Despite allocating Rs 500 Crore in the national health mission the state has a dismal record in the institutional delivery. Women are scared to go to government hospitals in Meghalaya. This is despite the fact that chief minister Mukul Sangma himself is a doctor,” Modi said.
