In today’s increasingly specialized and cut-throat world, a person needs in-depth knowledge and extensive domain expertise to handle a particular department even in a small company. But it is highly unfortunate that people with no qualification or expertise become Presidents, Governors, Prime Ministers, ministers, and bureaucrats in India to manage highly complex domains of governance.

The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, launched Wednesday the “Main Nahin Hum” portal and app, in New Delhi. The portal, which works on the theme “Self4Society”, will enable IT (information technology) professionals and organizations to bring together their efforts towards social causes, and service to society, on one platform.

In doing so, the portal is expected to help catalyze greater collaboration towards the service of the weaker sections of society, especially by leveraging the benefits of technology. It is also expected to generate wider participation of interested people who are motivated to work for the benefit of society.

The Prime Minister said that on many occasions, what the “Sarkar” cannot do, “Sanskar” can do. Let us make cleanliness a part of our value systems, he added.

The Prime Minister asserted that more people are paying taxes because they have faith that their money is being used properly and for the welfare of people. He said that India is making a mark in the start-up sector due to the talent of its youth.

Responding to a team that is working to create rural digital entrepreneurs, the Prime Minister said that it is important to create an India where everyone has equal opportunities. He said doing social work should be a matter of great pride for everyone.
