BJP President Amit Shah today slammed the Congress for reducing the North East to the "lowest level of development" and said North Eastern states would soon be the biggest contributor to the nation's GDP due to "visionary policies" of Prime Minister Narendra Modi."At the time of independence, the North East had a very high growth rate but the region, which was mostly ruled by Congress, was reduced to the lowest level of development", Shah said after laying the foundation stone here of 19 cancer care hospitals in the state in partnership with the Tata Trust.
