India is home to 243 million youth. The youth constitute nearly one quarter of the total population of the country thereby making India one of the youngest countries in the world. This young working population, full of energy and ideas is the fuel that is pushing the socio-economic growth of the country
The Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modiji has placed his faith in the youth of the country through various schemes, initiatives and has encouraged the entrepreneurial spirit of young India. The Honourable Prime Minister aspires to create a Swachh Bharat which the youth can reap benefits of. The Government, under the leadership of the Honourable Prime Minister is ensuring that a young India grows, because if young India progresses, all of India progresses.
I encourage young people to come forward and be part of an India that is rapidly transforming and a young India that is pushing the envelope for change. 2022 will mark 75 years of India's independence. In the past three years, India has moved from strength to strength on the shoulder and hard work of young people, and it is up to us, together to build a new India.
Often through my interactions I have observed that young people will never be happy with the status quo and will want to engage with the government on multiple levels. Young India wants a collaborative process, a participative democracy. This impatient energy of young people is the driving force of change, and we welcome it and accept it.
I call upon you, to come forward, work with us, and together, I promise you, we can build a new India. An India that you, and our future generations will be proud of.
