In the same way, Modi encouraged the young audience to make India grow and to make youngsters work together with government for the poorest sectors.
A champion of change is an idea to bridge the gap between the young entrepreneurs and the government officials to work together for the betterment of the society and to make India grow at every step. Amidst all the discussions, PM Narendra Modi has made sure that the government is serious about this idea and would want more and more participation from young entrepreneurs.
