Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday appealed to the students’ neighborhood to adopt a “nation first” approach to find answer to ongoing problems as an alternative of being a a part of the disaster.
Addressing the annual convocation of Visva-Bharati University by means of video conferencing, the Prime Minister, who’s the Chancellor of this central college, mentioned that the brand new ‘National Education Policy’ is a main step in the direction of Atmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India).
“Many people who are spreading terror and violence across the world are highly educated and highly skilled. On the other hand, there are people who are risking their lives in hospitals and labs to save people from a pandemic like Covid-19. It is not about ideology but a mindset. What you do depends on whether your mindset is positive or negative. There is scope for both of them. The path is open for both of them. It is in our hands to decide if we want to be a part of the problem or the solution,” mentioned Modi.
The Prime Minister continued, “If we continue to look at our own interest then we will always witness problems, crises, and anger around us. But if you rise above your own interest and adopt a nation-first approach then you will find a solution to every problem and crisis. You will find the urge to find positive force in negativity. You will become a solution to these problems if your intention is pure and dedication is unquestionable.”
