'Opportunity for youth': PM Modi announces launch of platform ‘Mera Yuva Bharat’ on Oct 31
Launch of ‘Mera Yuva Bharat’: On the occasion of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel's birth anniversary on October 31, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the launch of a nationwide 'Mera Yuva Bharat' platform - a new autonomous body for youth and youth-led development.
Modi urged the youth to register on MYBharat.Gov.in, emphasizing how they can play active roles in nation-building through this platform.
Addressing the nation on the 106th episode of his monthly flagship radio show Mann Ki Baat on Sunday, the Prime Minister stated that the foundation of a nationwide platform will be laid on October 31st, the birth anniversary of Sardar Saheb.
“MYBharat will provide an opportunity for the youth of India to play an active role in various nation-building events. This is a unique effort to integrate the youth power of India in building a developed India. Mera Yuva Bharat’s website My Bharat is also about to be launched,” the Prime Minister stated.
The development comes about a week after the Union cabinet announced, about a fortnight ago, that the government would set up a platform aimed at developing leadership skills among youth in order to make them social innovators and leaders in their communities while noting that youth between the ages of 15 and 29 could benefit from the platform, which would strive for youth and youth-led development.
The PM also paid a 'heartfelt tribute' to Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's death anniversary on October 31.
PM Modi reiterated his pitch for being a "vocal for local" ahead of the Diwali festival. "Like every time, this time too, in our festivals, our priority should be 'vocal for local' and let us together fulfil that dream, of Atmanirbhar Bharat," he said, adding that India is becoming the world's largest manufacturing hub.
