On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that people in power after Independence failed to “understand the significance of places of worship” and “started a trend of being ashamed of their own culture and past.”

Speaking at a rally in Guwahati, Assam, after launching projects worth Rs 11,600 crore, the Prime Minister was cited as stating by news agency PTI, “After independence, those who were in power for years could not understand the importance of places of worship.” They began a political trend of being ashamed of their own culture and heritage. “No country can progress by ignoring its history.”

He went on to say that the situation “has changed in the last ten years” and that the BJP’s “double-engine” government is focused on “development and heritage protection.”

PM Modi’s words came just days after Ram Lalla’s dedication ceremony at the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya on January 22. Notably, some opposition leaders, including Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, as well as senior leaders such as former President Sonia Gandhi and Lok Sabha Leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, declined the invitation to attend the occasion.

The massive consecration ceremony was described as a “RSS/BJP event” by Congress.

During his speech in Guwahati, PM Modi also lay the groundwork for the Rs 498 crore Kamakhya Divyalok Pariyojana corridor project. He said that it would mean a “complete turnaround” in the pilgrimage experience to the temple.

“It will serve as the entryway to the Northeast. Despite thousands of years of hardship, these are emblems of our culture and how we have preserved ourselves. Many of these symbols, which are part of our great culture, have now become ruins,” the Prime Minister stated.

According to him, Assam is a location where beliefs, spirituality, and tradition “are connected with modernity”.

PM Modi stated that the projects he revealed will improve connectivity not only in the northeast, but also throughout South Asia.

He went on to say that peace had returned to Assam in the last ten years, with over 7,000 people giving up their arms.

PM Modi stated, “More than ten major peace accords have been signed.” I had worked for the party in Assam. I witnessed occurrences such as roadblocks and bomb blasts in Guwahati. “It is no longer relevant.”

He stated that the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act of 1958 (AFSPA) has been repealed in various sections of the state and northeast.

“The northeast has seen a record number of tourists during the last decade. We will establish a new strategy to revitalize historical sites, which is why we have prioritized tourism in this year’s budget. “There is a huge opportunity in Assam and the northeast for that,” the Prime Minister said, adding that spending on developmental activities has increased “by four times” over the last decade.
