The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today addressed the inaugural event of the National Youth Festival at Rohtak, via video conferencing.

He said that the life of Swami Vivekananda shows what one can achieve at a young age, and added that the work that the youth are doing today will impact the future of the nation.

He expressed happiness that the theme for this festival is 'youth for Digital India.’ He urged the youth to guide people on increased cashless transactions. Corruption and black money adversely affect the progress of our nation, he added.
