Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that life of a NCC cadet is beyond the uniform, the parade and the camps as it provides a sense of mission, while addressing a rally in New Delhi.
The NCC experience offers a glimpse of India, its strength and its diversity, he said. Stressing on unity as cornerstone of India’s strength, Modi said, “world wonders how Indians are bound by unity despite so many regions, over 100 languages, 1,500 dialects, and different customs and food habits among others”. “It is our country's strength,” Modi added.
He underlined the fact that emperors, rulers, governments do not make a nation, but a nation is made by its citizens, youth, farmers, scholars, scientists, workforce, and saints.
Not only this, Prime Minister appreciated the role of National Cadets Corps (NCC) in furthering the cause of cleanliness. He also called for continuing the movement towards digital transactions.
Exhorting youngsters at the rally for downloading BHIM app, PM Modi urged the NCC cadets to educate those around them about digital payments.
Money saved on printing of notes, transportation and ATMs among others could be used for the betterment of the poor, the Prime Minister added.
