I look forward to more ideas from you all who are the future of our nation. It will be a delight to share your thoughts with the audience present at Fergusson College in Pune and with the audience worldwide on the 14th of July.”

People have written on a wide spectrum of problems and issues which have caused a trust deficit in our country. A lot of people have poured in with suggestions as to how to reduce the trust deficit in our country.

An increasing number of voices demanded change in the administration and called for greater transparency. 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.

Earlier, Shri Modi had written this in connection with his upcoming speech at Pune’s Fergusson College.

Looking forward to interacting with students at Fergusson College in Pune this Sunday, 14th July. I welcome the students and youngsters from across the country to share their opinion on what they think went wrong in our Nation that a trust deficit has been created. I would love to hear ideas on how we can bridge this gap.”

He went on to write, “I will share some of the selected opinions of students during the event at Fergusson College. Youngsters can post their ideas and opinions as a comment to this post.” 

Shri Narendra Modi will address students of Fergusson College on Sunday 14th July 2013 at 12:00 Noon. He will also interact with the students after the speech. Prior to his address he will visit the room in the college hostel where Veer Savarkar stayed as a student at Fergusson College.
