“The lack of governance in Delhi has led to Nido Tania's death in the national capital. I condemn Nido Tania incident in Delhi, there is no place for such acts. It is a shameful and sad incident," said Modi while addressing a rally in Manipur.

Tania, son of Arunachal Pradesh Congress legislator Nido Pavitra, died on January 30 after being attacked following a row over his appearance.

Criticizing the state government, Modi said, “Manipur has seen some of the worst Congress governments. It's due to lack of political vision and with that resources are not being harnessed and the North East is lagging behind."

He promised to bring the region at par with the other regions of India.

"You gave Congress 60 years but what good did that do to you? 60 years were ruined, now please give us 60 months," he said.

Modi also used the occasion to take potshots at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who is a Rajya Sabha MP from Assam.

“The PM represents this region in the Rajya Sabha. But has he done anything in the North East? The chief minister makes him inaugurate incomplete projects,” he said.
