Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has appealed to investors to invest in Assam, which is witnessing a change, signaling the emergence of a new India.
Addressing the first-ever Global Investors Summit in Assam, the Union Electronics and IT minister said, "I see a lot of passion in the people of the North east region. No more lahe lahe (slowly slowly). That image is changing to faster and faster. Assam is growing. Keep it up, a bright future awaits you".
He also asked the investors to "hand-hold the North East Region and guide them", while inaugurating a number of IT-based projects.
Stating that all youths across the country have similar dreams, he said, BPOs were now operating from Nagaland and getting contracts from Australia.
If youths in Kokrajhar district (in Assam) were asking for setting up of BPOs for development, it meant emergence of a new India, he said. – Money Control
