PM Modi addressed ‘Yuvam’ conclave in Kerala’s Therava. Beginning his speech, PM Modi greeted the audience in Malayalam.

Attributing their role PM Modi stated, “I am happy that the youth of Kerala today are following in their footsteps.”
PM Modi reiterated how everybody across the globe is calling this century as India’s century, how the perception of nothing will change in India has now transformed into an India promoting Startup India, Stand up India, and Atmanirbhar Bharat and how India has transformed from a ‘fragile five’ to being the ‘fifth largest economy’ in the world. Regarding the same PM Modi stated, “All these achievements are incomplete without the contribution of the youth who will continue to lead India towards progress and development. The youth today is also taking up responsibilities to solve global problems.”

PM Modi stated that “The BJP and the youth of this country have a similar wavelength. We bring reforms and the youth brings results enabling a successful youth-led partnership and change.
He added that in all the sectors which were completely ridden with scams during the Congress-led government, the BJP-led NDA government, through its effective governance, has brought reforms. “We brought reforms in the space, defence and PLI sectors making India Atmanirbhar promoting opportunities for our youth,” he stated. By extensively focusing on the expansion of infrastructure through roadways, highways, and waterways among others, PM Modi said that the Central Government sought to expand opportunities for exports.
PM Modi stated, “The youth of Kerala is aware that only through infrastructure creation, industrial expansion, creation of job opportunities and expansion of tourism will occur.” The government through its initiatives be it the Kochi Metro or the launch of the First Vande Bharat in Kerala or the creation of airport infrastructure in Kannur has always envisaged the creation of infrastructure facilitating growth and development.
Reiterating the importance of the Blue Economy for the people of Kerala, PM Modi stated that “The government is committed to promoting the Ease of Living of the people.” The government through its initiatives in creating new harbours, post-harvest infrastructure, and enabling access to formal credit through Kisan Credit Cards to fish farmers.
All our efforts are towards promoting the well-being of the youth of Kerala. In our recent initiative, we have enabled the youth of Kerala to appear for the CAPF Constable exam in Malayalam along with 12 other regional languages. Through Rozgar Melas, we are providing government jobs to various youths in the country. On the same, PM Modi stated, “Our motto is to unlock the potential of the youth of our country.”

PM Modi stated that the youth of Kerala should not be trapped in the dual ideologies where one ideology holds its party ideology over the progress of the state and on the other hand the other ideology promotes family over the development of the state. He said, “The youth in the state should support the BJP Government which has always respected the aspirations of the people of Kerala.” On this PM Modi stated that he wished the youth of Kerala to lead India in AI revolution and to be the harbingers of Malayalam culture all around the world.
