The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, said today that some people are trying to divide the nation and the youth of this country are giving a fitting answer to such elements. Our youth will never be misled, Modi added.

Although Modi did not elaborate, today youth across the country are getting united to defeat the divisive forces that are trying to create a divide between people on the basis of their castes and religions.

These days, youth leaders such as Umar Khalid, Jignesh Mewani, and Hardik Patel are holding protest rallies and demonstrations across the country to mobilize youth against the people who have been trying to divide the country.

Modi praised the youth and expected them to become job creators. He recalled that during his monologue called Mann Ki Baat in December 2017, he had called for organizing Mock Parliaments in the districts. Such Mock Parliaments will further the spirit of discussion among our youth, he added.

Modi said that some people believe that today’s youth do not have ‘Dhairya‘ or patience. However, he feels, that in a way, this is what ignites an innovative zeal in our youth. It enables our youngsters to think out of the box and do new things, he added.

Addressing a programme to mark National Youth Day, Modi said India’s youth is taking the Swachh Bharat Mission to new heights, the Prime Minister said. India has been home to several saints, seers who have served society and reformed it, he added.

The Prime Minister said Seva Bhav is a part of our culture. All over India, there are several individuals and organisations selflessly serving society, he added.
