PM Modi inaugurates National Youth Festival virtually in view of Swami Vivekananda birth anniversary

On the occasion of Swami Vivekananda’s birth anniversary in Puducherry, Prime Minister Modi virtually opened the 25th National Youth Festival. He urged the youths to embrace India’s new credo, Compete and Conquer, and to win wars in order to build a stronger country.

Narendra Modi challenged the youths to write about unheralded independence fighters who went unnoticed despite making extraordinary sacrifices.

He claimed that the enormous number of young people who participated in the Covid-19 immunization effort demonstrated their desire to win and a sense of duty among them. The performance of the country’s young in the Olympics and Paralympics, where they won medals, the PM added, was clear proof of the country’s youth’s will.

Puducherry, he added, is a great example of ‘Shresht Bharat Ek Bharat’ (Best India, United India), from which the youth can learn a lot.

India’s demographic, according to Modi, is youthful, as is the country’s thinking. The National Youth Festival falls on the 150th anniversary of Swami Aurobindo’s birth and the 100th anniversary of Poet Subramania Bharathi’s death, both of whom are strongly identified with Puducherry.

He urged young people to be Vocal for Local since it may help solve a variety of issues, including unemployment, bringing honor to the underprivileged, and assisting in economic development and empowerment.

The Prime Minister also opened a technological center for the MSME ministry in Puducherry, which cost Rs 122 crore to build. He dedicated the Perunthalaivar Kamarajar Manimandapam, a Rs 23 crore auditorium featuring an open-air theatre built by the Puducherry administration.

Dr Tamilisai Sounderrajan, Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry, Chief Minister N. Rangasami, and Union Minister for Youth and Sports Affairs, Anurag Singh Thakur, were among those in attendance.
