Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said the energy of the youngsters is the basis of changing India in the 21st century.

While delivering an address at Belur Math in West Bengal on the occasion of National Youth Day, Modi urged the youth to tackle problems as a challenge and solve them.

“The energy of youth is the basis of changing India in the 21st century. The target of New India can only be achieved by all of you. It is the youth that says ‘Let’s not postpone problems’. The youth will always challenge problems and solve them. Challenge the challenge…,” he said.

He also said that the initiatives of cleanliness had also been leaded by youths and most of them had been successful.

“In the last five years, the youth has proven that they can make any mission successful if they join in. There was a sense of negativity over India’s cleanliness until five years ago. The youth lead from the front and change can be seen everywhere,” Modi said.

Modi also claimed that the country is one of the the fastest-growing digital networks in the world.

The prime minister, who is on a two-day visit in West Bengal, visited the temple of Swami Vivekananda to pay respects to the great spiritual leader on the occasion of 157th birth anniversary.

He also later visited the main temple building and paid tribute to Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa.
