Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited researchers and academicians and sought their support to realise the dream of Atma Nirbhar Bharat, which includes a vision of global welfare. In his address after inaugurating the Vaishvik Bhartiya Vaigyanik, (VAIBHAV)  Summit last evening through video conference, the Prime Minister said, just recently, India introduced pioneering space reforms which provide opportunities for both industry and academia. He said, there is a need to amplify the rich history of Indian science.

The Prime Minister also called for inculcating interest among youngsters for studying science. He said, the summit should look forward to realising the dream of building a secure and prosperous future for the coming generations. Calling VAIBHAV as a confluence of great minds, Mr Modi said that these efforts will help create an ideal research ecosystem, merging tradition with modernity to create prosperity.

The Prime Minister said the government wants top class scientific research to help the farmers. He said, the agricultural research scientists have worked very hard to increase the production of pulses. India imports only a very small fraction of the pulses today and the country’s food-grain production has hit record highs.

Mr Modi said, the Government has taken numerous measures to boost science, research and innovation. He said, science is at the core of its efforts towards socio-economic transformations.
