PM Narendra Modi stresses on innovations to overcome challenges the world is facing

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said, willpower and workforce are the biggest assets of any nation and once the people decide to bring about change, everything is possible. 

Addressing the Grand finale of Smart India Hackathon-2018 through the video-conferencing in New Delhi, the Prime Minister said, innovation has the power to overcome the challenges the world is facing.

He said, it is essential to know the root of every problem and stressed the need to think about out of the box way to solve the problems. Mr Modi said, nobody is blessed with all the knowledge in the world and this also applies to Governments. 

He said, if the governments think that that they can alone bring changes is a mistake while adding that changes can be made through participative governance. Saying that innovation is a continuous process and questioning is an important aspect of the innovation.

He suggested the students not to shy away from questioning. The Prime Minister said, the government wants to give more autonomy to the higher education sector and work is being done to create institutions of eminence in the country.

Prime Minister said he is happy to know that over half the projects selected during last year's Hackathon have been completed and more are to be completed in the near future. He said the innovation quotient of nations will determine their progress. 

Mr Modi said, there is a need to think that how the innovation transforms the lives of the citizens. He said, Innovate, Patent, Produce, and Prosper will drive innovation. He said we should innovate more, patent them, make their products easier and take it to the people.
