The youth urged that steps should be taken and plans implemented to ensure that students pursue their higher education in the country itself and not prefer colleges abroad to prevent brain drain. A concerned citizen said that black money that has been stashed in foreign offshore banks should be brought back and used to create social and economic infrastructure for the country. A strong sentiment prevailed regarding sprucing up India’s foreign policy and that the Government should take tough decisions on economy, foreign policy, national security and such important issues.
