Dr. Mahendra Nath Pandey Speech
Since 2015 Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam International Foundation has been constantly working to fulfill the vision of Dr. Kalam. The foundation is working altruistically for the upliftment of the nation and has also made contributions for the welfare of people.
Honourable Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi always emphasizes on the importance of Skill Development. Even at this unsmooth situation of the pandemic (Covid 19) Modiji has motivated the countrymen and the youth towards skill development.
Every youngster and student undoubtedly gets inspired by one name which is Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. Dr. Kalam had dedicated his whole life encouraging people and to fill young minds with huge positivity. Today, on the advice of the Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship is also working on this same Vision. Narendra Modiji is giving utmost importance to the talent of the youth.
Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship was previously scattered in small divisions under various departments. Compliments to Modiji that he has created this department separately and as per new countings our skill level is reaching 8% from 7%. Today the highest population of youth in the world, 30-35 lives in India. Population of youth in India is very strong.
New Education Policy has focused on skilling along with schooling.
Adding the vision of your foundation to that of Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Government of India will work on the mission. That is how to make India capable, how to make India self sufficient, how to overcome the challenges India is facing currently, how to strengthen our credibility in the world through our innovations in the field of production.
I would like to request the members of Abdul Kalam International Foundation to work for the progress of skill development all over the country through your institution.
