Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the youth of the nation to contribute in the making of a New India.

Speaking about the change in the Haj rules, he said, "It had come to our notice that if a Muslim woman wants to go on Haj, she must have a "Mehram" or a male guardian, otherwise she can not travel, it was discriminatory, we have changed this rule and this year around 1300 women applied to go without a male guardian".

- Recently I came to know of the inspiring story of Anjum Bashir Khan Khattak, he extricated from sting of terrorism and hatred and topped in Kashmir Administrative Examination, today he is an inspiration not only for J&K but India. Vibodh also thanked PM for his great idea of running a mock Parliament in Delhi in 2018 for which youth from each district of the country will participate.
