India has the power of knowledge to rule the 21st century, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday.
Speaking to students at the fifth convocation of Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University in Katra today, the PM said that Jammu and Kashmir represents a mini India.
"There is a mini India in Jammu and Kashmir. Dream to do something and not to become someone. India will lead the 21st century because the energy required for it is with us. India has 800 million youth power which is below 35 years. Dream of every youth can become a progress story for the country," Modi said.
"Our nation is scaling new heights of progress and with such a youthful population we can achieve so much. Dream to do something and not to become someone," he said.
PM Modi's Karta visit comes at a time when tension has gripped parts of the state following violent clashes between locals and security forces in Handwara town.
