“I believe in the capabilities of our fellow Indians. I believe in the abilities of our youth. I am confident that we can achieve this goal of Atmanirbhar Bharat with the help of the approach and thought process of our citizens,” he further added.

He said self-sufficiency meant not only reducing imports, but also increasing the levels of skills and creativity in the country. He added that measures taken by his government, like opening up the space sector, would generate employment opportunities for the youth.
