Northeast region will stand for "New Engine" of growth for India post-pandemic times, DoNER Minister Singh said at the virtual North East Festival.
If Jitendra Singh has exuded confidence in the potential, one must also take heed to comments made by Kiren Rijiju, MoS, Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports and Minority Affairs who said that now the onus lies on all the eight Northeastern states to make bamboo a vehicle of prosperity for the whole region.
The World Bamboo Day was jointly organised with the Apunba Imagi Machasing (AIMS) and Manipur at CSIR-NEIST Branch Laboratory, at Lamphelpat, Imphal.
DoNER Minister Jitendra Singh said bamboo is not only vital to India's Post- COVID economy but it will also herald a new momentum for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clarion call of “Vocal for Local”.
