The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today attended the sixth Convocation of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University at Lucknow.

Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said that on one hand he is happy to see India's rise in the 21st century, as a nation full of youthful energy, with youthful dreams and youthful resolve. He said the youth is India's source of strength.

On the other hand, the Prime Minister recalled the recent suicide committed by a student in Hyderabad, and said he felt and understood the pain of the family. He said that whatever may have been the reasons, a mother lost her son; indeed Mother India had lost a son. The Prime Minister said that his Government would follow the path shown by Babasaheb Ambedkar, and work towards creating an environment where problems could be overcome.

The Prime Minister recalled Dr. Ambedkar’s economic vision, and said the Government is working towards the development of youth as job creators, instead of job seekers.

The Prime Minister mentioned how Dr. Ambedkar had placed importance on education, and had achieved so much despite adversity. He said that Dr. Ambedkar had then resolved to return to India and devote his life for the welfare of the weaker sections of society. He urged the convocating youth to follow the example set by Dr. Ambedkar, and try to serve the poor and the downtrodden.

The Prime Minister laid the Foundation Stone of the state-of-the-art Student Activity Centre at the University.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the first Outreach Session of the G7 Summit today.  

The session, titled ‘Building Back Stronger - Health’, focused on global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and on strengthening resilience against future pandemics. 

During the session, Prime Minister expressed appreciation for the support extended by the G7 and other guest countries during the recent wave of COVID infections in India. 

He highlighted India's ‘whole of society’ approach to fight the pandemic, synergising the efforts of all levels of the government, industry and civil society.   

He also explained India’s successful use of open source digital tools for contact tracing and vaccine management, and conveyed India's willingness to share its experience and expertise with other developing countries.

Prime Minister committed India's support for collective endeavours to improve global health governance. He sought the G7's support for the proposal moved at the WTO by India and South Africa, for a TRIPS waiver on COVID related technologies. 

Prime Minister Modi said that today's meeting should send out a message of "One Earth One Health" for the whole world. Calling for global unity, leadership, and solidarity to prevent future pandemics, Prime Minister emphasized the special responsibility of democratic and transparent societies in this regard. 

PM will participate in the final day of the G7 Summit tomorrow and will speak in two Sessions.
