Speaking on topics that are connected with mass movements where the power of the people is the basis for their success, the Prime Minster first mentioned Swachh Bharat which had become a huge campaign in the last nine years involving everyone. “Children brought an emotional power to it.

The Prime Minister also suggested putting a question at the end of each episode and providing action points to do something. “Once People can do the activity and share it with you. This way, your popularity will also grow, and people will not just listen but also engage in doing something”, he said.

Viksit Bharat Ambassador Meet-Up in Pune: Volunteers Assemble To Pledge Towards Building a Developed India
February 28, 2024

Volunteers in Pune responded to PM Narendra Modi's call to become "Viksit Bharat Ambassadors" by hosting a national meet-up on February 28th at the Sumant Moolgaokar Auditorium, MCCIA. The objective of this meet-up was to gather local support for the Viksit Bharat Ambassador movement, which aims to make a developed India (Viksit Bharat) a reality by 2047.

The event was attended by Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Hon'ble Minister of State for IT, Skilling and Entrepreneurship. Distinguished entrepreneurs, institution owners, corporates, and professionals from Pune were also present.

"In 2014, the economy that was left behind was one of the fragile five. 16 quarters of runaway inflations, 18 quarters of declining growth, a financial sector that had been shattered beyond bits, and an overall image of dysfunctional governance that was causing investors to pause and re-look at India. That was from 2004-14, which we refer to as a lost decade. From 2014-19, PM Modi rebuilt the economy and financial sector... The second term was about building the New India..." said Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar at the 'Viksit Bharat Ambassador Meet'.
