ASSAM: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has ushered in changes in all spheres including India's oreign policy, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said here today.

"Modi has established a new outlook in all spheres, including India's foreign policy, economic policy, homeland security," benefiting the people, Swaraj said at a BJP workers' meeting here.

Asserting that the BJP had come to power in the general elections with a broad vision for the country, Swaraj voiced confidence that her party will emerge victorious in the Assam assembly polls too.

On the vexed illegal foreigners' problem in Assam, the Minister said, "The Centre is seized of the matter.

"The issue will be solved keeping the interest of all sections of people". On the demand in the Barak valley for a Passport office in Cachar district, she said the Central government was examining the demand and the Passport office may be set up in Silchar.

The Passport Office, Guwahati caters to six of the North Eastern States of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram and Nagaland.

Coming back to the development plank, Swaraj said, "When BJP wins here all round development will come to Assam as BJP does not indulge in partisan politics based on religion and caste".

The senior BJP leader exhorted her party workers to tell the people about the development works undertaken by Modi government.

Swaraj charged Tarun Gogoi with "failing" to bring all round development to Assam.

"The whole of the North East region, particularly Assam, has been lagging behind the rest of the country", she said.

Swaraj wondered what kind of development former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh brought to Assam which he has been representing in Parliament for nearly 24 years, ten years of that phase being as Prime Minister.Singh is a Rajya Sabha MP from Assam.
