The BJP will be organising a pan-Indian festival-like publicity campaign to highlight the achievements of the Narendra Modi-led NDA three-year rule. If work had continued then you would have had the bridge 10 years ago.

"The Rs 12,000-crore all-weather chardham roads project and the Rishikesh-Karnpaprayag rail link are going to prove a milestone in the development of Uttarakhand as they will give a boost to tourism besides generating employment for the local people", Bhatt said.

"The bridge will not only save money, reduce travel time but it comes as a foundation for the beginning of a new economic revolution".

He also said the government was working to make the region a hub of economic activity.

Road connectivity will see a major transformation as this bridge will fill a huge connectivity gap that has existed in the north east region.

Modi's address, lasting over 40 minutes, mostly focussed on eliminating corruption, "which the people of India wanted as evident from their support to the demonetisation drive" and building a New India, his pet campaign themes before the 2014 general elections.

Modi is however expected to launch more infrastructure projects in Assam later. He said the Union Government is placing great emphasis on the development of waterways as well.

- Built at a cost of Rs 2,056 crore, the total length of the Dhola-Sadiya Bridge project, including the approach roads on each side, is 28.50 km.

"We have chose to name the bridge after Bhupen Hazarika, the son of Brahmaputra and Assam's voice", said PM Modi.

The books- "Mann Ki Baat: A Social Revolution on Radio" and "Marching with a Billion- Analysing Narendra Modi's Government at Midterm"- were released by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan at a function held in Rashtrapati Bhavan.

The construction of the bridge started in 2011.

He also said that some of the decisions taken by the Prime Minister during his three years in office have been epoch making ones.

Referring to the Dhola-Sadiya bridge which he will inaugurate, the prime minister said, "This is one of the most important infrastructure projects in our nation".

At Gogamukh in Dhemaji district, 420 km from Guwahati, Modi said, "The government of India has adopted five paths to take India's ashtalakshmi (the eight Northeastern states) forward".
