While addressing media persons at “Hunar Haat”, organised at Guwahati, Assam, Naqvi said that, while on one hand, Prime Minist Modi has become an “Icon” of inclusive empowerment of deprived and downtrodden in India, on the other hand he has been accepted as a “Ray of Hope” for peace across the world.
Naqvi said that the North Eastern region of the country including Assam, which had been neglected for the decades, have been made “Priority Partner of Progress and Prosperity” by Prime Minister Modi.
