Minister of State for Development of North Eastern Region Dr Jitendra Singh has said development of the North East is priority of the government.
The Minister was addressing the gathering on the occasion of the United Nations International Youth Day in New Delhi yesterday.
He said, the focus has been on bringing the rest of India closer to Northeast, as compared to the earlier focus of brining only North East India closer to the mainstream.
Dr Jitendra Singh encouraged the youth to utilise the untapped potential of the region by reaping the benefit of Venture funds for start-ups in North East. (AIR NEWS)
