New Delhi: Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS, PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh has said that tomorrow belongs to “Young India” and only those who are unmindful of India’s rapid march forward can overlook this reality. Addressing a youth congregation organized by “Vision India Foundation” under its “Boot Camp” programme here today, Dr Jitendra Singh said, with almost 65% of country’s population below the age of 35 years, during the next few years the Indian youth population will not only be a vital and crucial resource bank for India but in fact for the entire world.
Dr Jitendra Singh said that under the able leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India has embarked on the fast track of all-round development during the last one year. He said that by the year 2022, when India celebrates 75 years of its independence, India’s supremacy in the world arena will become visible and the architect of this would primarily be a visionary leadership supported by a determined youth force.
Referring to the self-attestation of documents promoted by the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT), Dr Jitendra Singh said this marked a revolutionary step directly benefitting the youth wherein the Government has decided to do away with the age-old practice of getting the certificates attested by a Gazetted Officer/Notary, etc. Referring to his brief tenure as Minister of Science and Technology, he said an initiative has been undertaken to involve young scientific brains in India’s space programme. In his capacity as the Minister for Development of North Eastern Region, Dr Jitendra Singh said, first of its kind initiative was taken by starting the process of holding regular meetings with students and youths not only in different States of the Northeast but also those living in the national capital. He said, such interactive approach has enormously benefited the Government by helping orientate its various policies.
Dr Jitendra Singh called upon the youth to become more forthcoming and said, not only will he like to have regular interactive meetings with them but also try to institutionalize a mechanism whereby they can become an essential part of the decision-making process in contemporary India.
