IMPHAL: India has to be future ready was Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s advice during an annual science event in Imphal. He urged scientists to take India to a new industrial revolution and “aim to be among the top 10 countries in the Global Innovation Index by 2030”.
At the inaugural session of the Indian Science Congress in Imphal, PM Modi also requested scientists to spend at least 100 hours every year with 100 students. He said, “Imagine how many scientists we can nurture this way!”
“It will also excite and attract our young minds to careers in science. We have to throw open our national institutions and laboratories to our children. I call upon scientists to develop an appropriate mechanism for interaction with school-going children,” he added.
