The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, today addressed the inaugural event of the National Youth Festival at Rohtak, via video conferencing.

He said that the life of Swami Vivekananda shows what one can achieve at a young age, and added that the work that the youth are doing today will impact the future of the nation.

He expressed happiness that the theme for this festival is ‘Youth for Digital India.’ He urged the youth to guide people on increased cashless transactions. Corruption and black money adversely affect the progress of our nation, he added.

The Prime Minister said that times have changed due to the influence of technology, and the need of the hour is collectivity, connectivity, and creativity.

He said that the support from the youth in the fight against corruption convinces him that it is possible to bring a positive change in the nation.
