The North-East and particularly Nagaland is ‘very special’ for the BJP and it is visible in the focus given to North East in the Union budget, BJP national executive member and special envoy to the party high command, Sudhansu Mittal said in Dimapur on Monday.

Citing the deplorable road condition of the Dimapur-Kohima stretch of NH-29, the BJP leader said this reflected the ‘vindictive mindset’ of the Congress-led UPA government.

"But now people of North-East and Nagaland can look forward to a new era of development. The Modi government is a government which will be remembered for its zeal and commitment to development," Mittal said.

Assuring that the BJP will leave no stone unturned to bring development in the North East, be it road, infrastructure, power or education, Mittal said that funds should not be a constraint.

He however said that a lot will depend on the sincerity of the state government for execution and implementation of central schemes and projects.
