New Delhi: Union Minister of State for Development of North Eastern Region, Dr Jitendra Singh said on Sunday that today’s youths have the privilege of being the architects of New India which is soon going to emerge as a global power.

In an interaction with a group of students from Jammu and Kashmir, currently on a visit to the capital, Singh said, “most of the students who are in age group of 16 to 20 years have their aspirations but need to work out their inner aptitude and their inner capacities.

Dr Singh said, ”they have the privilege of being globally connected with their counterparts across the world. Many of them, who have moved out to other parts of the country, have made name for themselves at a young age.”

Dr Singh answered a wide range of questions from the students and also responded by offering his views on a number of current topics as well as elaborating several youth-centric initiatives taken by the Union Government.
