Guwahati, Feb 19: The Union Minister of Ports, Shipping & Waterways and Ayush, Sarbananda Sonowal held an intimate conversation with the students of Dhemaji Commerce College, Dhemaji College, Maridhal College, Dhemaji Girls College and Bardalani Central College at Dhemaji Commerce College Hall on Sunday.
Addressing the students, Sarbananda Sonowal said, “Youth is a great force and one of the key driving forces of the country. The role of youth has been far-reaching and most important in the determination of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi to make India self-reliant. With our conversation here, I urge the young students to play the role of vigilant guards for the society and become partners in nation building. Under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi, the govt is working on mission mode to accord top priority to utilise talent & energy of youth in nation building.”
“Modi ji wants to make the Northeast as the new engine of development of the country through transformation through transportation. That is clearly reflected in his work and visionary leadership over the past few years. With no broad-gauge in most of the northeast, the rail lines are going to reach each state capital of the Northeast India. Several trains have been arranged to run on the North side of the Brahmaputra to connect with Dhemaji as well. Such radical changes in all aspects have been made possible only due to the goodwill, dedication and strong leadership of Modi ji. India is now equipped with various state-of-the-art networks of road transport, air, railway, waterways, information technology. The construction of the Dibrugarh-Dhemaji Gigabit Bridge was completed and dedicated to the nation by Modi government. Modi ji has created a renaissance of development that was unimaginable before 2014. Now, we have a golden opportunity to become economically stronger. Under the strong leadership of PM Modi ji, India has now become the fifth largest economy in the world, overtaking the UK, who once ruled us. Now, India is shining as a superpower. India is gradually gaining strength to lead the world. The recent presidency of the G20 has opened up new horizons. This G-20 meeting is also being held in Assam, which will open up many possibilities. Therefore, I sincerely urge the youth to play an active role in this powerful journey of transformation of the country,” Sonowal said.
He further added, “Education opens our mind with knowledge. Therefore, I urge the students to properly evaluate their educational life and shape their lives with discipline, discipline, concentration, hard work and deep study. We have to follow the example of the great sages and make our lives dynamic,”.
More than six hundred students attended this interactive session.
