Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed a NCC rally in New Delhi. While addressing the youngsters, PM said that NCC camps teach every youngster about the different cultures of India. He added by saying that it motivates every youngster to do something good for the nation. “Every youngster came here with their own personality and identity but I am sure the last month would have led to the formation of new friendships and learning of new things from others,” PM said. The Prime Minister hailed the spirit of NCC camps and said that it is not about uniform or uniformity, it is about unity. PM said, “This spirit that has been learnt in NCC camps has to remain with you for life… Through NCC we nurture teams that work in mission mode and inspire others.”
PM also acknowledged the youth of India and their fight against corruption and black money. He said that once the youth of India decide something, everything is possible. “The youth of India refuses to accept corruption. The fight against corruption and black money will not stop. This is a fight for the future of India’s youth.” He added by saying, “Earlier people believed that nothing happens to the rich and powerful. But, things are different today. People who served as Chief Ministers are in jail for their corruption.”
Encouraging the youth to do digital transactions through the BHIM App and also get others on that platform, PM said, “My young friends, I am here to ask for something. No, I am not here for seeking votes or politics. My appeal is- please further digital transactions through (the BHIM App). Please also get others on that platform. This is a step towards transparency and accountability.” Modi also made a strong pitch for the use of Aadhaar, saying it has added great strength to India’s development by curbing leakages and helping government money reach its target beneficiaries.
In the wake of the completion of seven years of NCC, PM Modi said that it is a day to celebrate the achievements and think on how to make the NCC experience more effective in future. “NCC completes 7 glorious decades. It has given a sense of mission to several people. Today we celebrate what we have achieved and also think about how we can make the NCC experience even more effective in the years to come.” PM also urged all stakeholders to think about the plan of action of the next 5 years, when NCC turns 75.
