Guwahati (Assam), 03 Feb (ANI): While addressing the Global Investors’ Summit, ‘Advantage Assam’ in Guwahati, Prime Minister Narendra Modi mentioned the new policy launched in the Union Budget to restructure the National Bamboo Mission that has been welcomed in the bamboo-rich northeast. “Bamboo is scientifically a grass but nearly 90 years ago, the lawmakers categorized it as a tree which required for a permit to cut or transport. Northeast Indians were the most at disadvantage because of this,” PM Modi said, “It is only our government that removed bamboo from the category of trees and brought benefit to the tribal population,” the PM added.
