The Prime Minister said the cadets assembled before him today come from all parts of the country, and therefore represent a mini-India. He said people such as Swami Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi had travelled across the country to imbibe the soul of India in themselves. He said it was necessary to travel through the country to understand its diversity, and this opportunity for the cadets was an opportunity in that direction.

The Prime Minister said the NCC Rally today had brought back memories of his own childhood as an NCC cadet, though he had not got the opportunity to come to Delhi, as a cadet. He appreciated the assembled cadets for the effort they would have put in, to be selected to come to Delhi, in connection with the Republic Day celebrations, of which this rally is a part.
