PM Modi honours innovative, brave kids

New Delhi, January 24

PM Narendra Modi on Monday appealed to children to lead the vocal for local and self-reliant India campaigns. After conferring National Children’s Awards for 2021 and 2022 using block chain technology developed by IIT, Delhi, the PM credited children for the success of “Clean India” campaign.

He hailed the children for their scientific temper noting that 4 crore of the 7.4 crore eligible 15 to 18 year olds had already received the first dose of Covid vaccine.

Congratulating the awardees (32 children for 2021 and 29 for 2022), the PM urged all children to read the life story of the 10th Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh’s sons who displayed great valour to protect the national pride.

He also pointed to the magnificence of the National Children’s Awards which are timed with national celebrations of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav and said, “With these awards comes great responsibility. You must not get overwhelmed by rising expectations. You must take inspiration from them.”
