Vice President Venkaiah Naidu says youth represent energy that drives India of the future

Vice President M.Venkaiah Naidu today said that youth represent the energy that drives India of the future. Speaking on the occasion of World Youth Meet in Bengaluru today, he called upon youth to change the course of India towards growth trajectory through their knowledge and imagination, competence and confidence, their risk-taking ability and multi-tasking ability, their agility and adaptability.

Saying that India  is moving rapidly on the path of progress and is emerging as a strong economic force, Naidu said that  nearly 65% of our population is less than 35 years of age and this demographic advantage will yield complete dividends only if youth are equipped with the required skills and attitude, with the knowledge and wisdom.

Vice President said our youth should aim high and strive hard, be rooted in the Indian ethos but be willing to learn from the best in the world.

He noted that the Government is devising effective policies and programs but the massive effort required for this transformation will be possible only with the active participation of the civil society, the private sector, the academic and charitable organizations, he said. 

Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala and others took part in the event.
