New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hailed the Education Ministry‘s youth exchange programme ‘Yuva Sangam‘ as a great initiative to promote the country’s diversity and people-to-people connect.
In the episode 101 of his monthly radio broadcast ‘Mann ki Baat’, Modi also interacted with some participants of the ‘Yuva Sangam’ and told them to write blogs on their experiences so that others can also know about it.
The youth exchange programme provides an opportunity to students from one part of the country to visit other parts and understand their culture and heritage.
