Prime Minister Narendra Modi today expressed hope that social entrepreneurs can take advantage of Swachh Bharat programme as it has a huge business element. Speaking at a function organised to commemorate 90 years of Essel Group in the national capital, the PM said that a large number of young social entrepreneurs are coming up to be part of the Swachh Bharat Mission, according to PTI.

Adding that the mission gives an opportunity for a large number of social entrepreneurs to come up, Modi said, “Waste to wealth is a belief that is gaining momentum. A lot of social entrepreneurship is being devoted towards this.”

The prime minister, while expressing concern on natural resources shortage, said it can be taken care of in a scientific way with judicious usage and proper management. He further said entrepreneurship has always been an important part of the system in the country that has been passed on from one generation to another.

Highlighting the importance of family values in India, Narendra Modi added that it is the biggest gift to the world. “Today, even in the most advanced countries, the revival of family values have become a part of election manifesto,” the prime minister was quoted by PTI as saying.

    Honourable PM Narendra Modi Ji, Congratulation on being successfully completed 3 year's in office of PM with your cabinet colleagues. Overall, the functioning of the Mr Modi Ji's government during the past three years is satisfactory, some steps should be firmly taken by the government to reduce poverty with special focus on farmers. Agriculture development needs more attention. Water and energy conversation programs should be under taken vigorously in order to boost agriculture income. Also the government should fix minimum support price for agriculture products in general and rice, wheat, suggercane and millets in particular. With regard to skill India program, it should be area/geography specific than uniformly implement the skill and placement program in the entire nation. The need and requirements of skil is differ from place to place and hence community polytechnics can be encouraged than implementing it through Public Private Partnership to get desired results. Jai Hind

    Tagging business element to Swatch Bharat Mission will certainly make the cleanliness drive a profitable issue. Let's start with the huge land fills and river cleaning.
