“Your dreams are going to shape the reality of India”, he spoke to the IITians and mentioned the role of youth towards the future of this nation and asked them to be “future-ready”.  Furthermore, he said that the Northeast states require a high degree of technical know-how support and intervention to tackle the various problems they constantly face.

The northeast states have a lot of possibilities but their energy and efforts get utilized in combating problems such as floods earthquakes landslides and industrial disasters.

Therefore, the PM asked IIT Guwahati to come up and help the administration in tackling the calamities of the northeast. He advised the IIT to set up a centre for studying disasters in order to facilitate better management and risk reduction in the region.

The frequency of disasters, both natural and manmade has been a curse and source of misery to the northeast population of India.

The prime minister even spoke about the NEP (New Education Policy) 2020.
“NEP will link education with technology”.
“Prme minister Modi spoke about the NEP 2020 and ‘opening up the education’ sector which will establish India as a Global education destination”.
