India Today - - 30 YEARS OF MODI GOVERNMENT | DEVELOPMENT - —Uday Mahurkar

THE CHOPPER AIR MED­I­CAL SER­VICE for cut-off ar­eas in the North­east is typ­i­cal of Singh’s vi­sion. Now un­der Singh’s ini­tia­tive, which he calls ‘DONER at your doorstep’, a DONER sec­re­taries’ meet­ing is held ev­ery month by turns in a NE state cap­i­tal. Then at least one cen­tral min­is­ter vis­its an NE state cap­i­tal ev­ery fort­night, thanks to Singh’s co­or­di­na­tion ef­forts. Plus, he has in­tro­duced use of satel­lite im­ages for phys­i­cally ver­i­fy­ing the de­vel­op­men­tal project roads to stop pil­fer­age of grants from Delhi. And Arunachal Pradesh and Megha­laya are to be con­nected to the rail net­work.
