Live your life for nation, make it number in world: Amit Shah encourages students to work for country
Hubballi (Karnataka), January 28: Union Home Minister Amit Shah encouraged students on Saturday to work for the country and advised them to take advantage of opportunities provided by the Centre to make the country number one in the world.
"If you can't sacrifice your life for the country then live your life for your nation and make it the number one country in the world. PM Modi has given you all opportunities to do that," the Union Home Minister said addressing the students at 'Amrit Mahotsav' at the BVB Engineering College in Karnataka's Hubballi.
In his address to the students, he also advised them to read about the supreme sacrifice made by freedom fighters in order to ensure the country's independence.
He went on to say that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has envisioned the dream of a $5 trillion economy solely for students because it would obviate the need for them to work.

Later in his speech, he mentioned startups and emphasised how the country has begun to move forward under PM Modi's leadership and guidance.
"In 2014, we were capable of setting up only three unicorn startups but now we have developed more than 70,000 startups in India, including more than 75 unicorn startups. Of these, at least 30 per cent have been launched by girls and 45 per cent through people in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, hence it does not matter where you live but your determination that decides your success," Amit Shah added.
Cities with populations ranging from 50,000 to 100,000 are classified as Tier 2 cities, while those with populations ranging from 20,000 to 50,000 are classified as Tier 3 cities.
