India should emerge as world leader in post-COVID world: PM Modi
India should emerge as a world leader in the post-COVID new world order, says Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said the COVID-19 crisis has taught the world new lessons and shattered existing structures which will lead to the emergence of a new world order in the post-COVID era.
“So, as we celebrate Azad ka Amrit Mahotsav, we should envisage a pivotal role for India and that it should emerge as a world leader in this post-COVID new world order,” PM Modi said this during the second National Committee meeting on Azad Ka Amrit Mahostav in New Delhi.
He pointed out that it is commonly stated that the 21st century belongs to Asia. “It is important to focus on India’s stature in Asia in this century.” PM Modi said this is an opportune time to set eyes on 2047 when India will celebrate 100 years of independence.
“It is at that time that the current generation will celebrate 100 years of independence. It is at that time that the current generation will be at the helm of affairs and the nation’s destiny will be in their hands,” the prime minister said. “The current generation is fired with the motivation to create a new future. But it must be remembered that the future is always borne in the lap of the past. We must not forget our forefathers who have sacrificed their youth, lives and families for the country.”
The members of the National Committee who attended the meeting included Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, various state governors, union ministers, chief ministers, political leaders, government officials, besides host of spiritual leaders, artists and film personalities among others.
