Wednesday also marked the auspicious occasion of 25th National Youth Day that is celebrated annually to mark the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda. While addressing the event, PM Modi mentioned how India is entering the golden age of start-ups, and their riding strength is the Indian Youth.

The new medical colleges established all across the state of Tamil Nadu will provide affordable medical education. They will also work towards improving the health infrastructure of the country.
