Ahmedabad: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said only those societies that focus on education will succeed as he inaugurated an educational complex near Ahmedabad that will provide needy students with facilities for holistic development. The Modi Shaikshanik Sankul near Chharodi has been set up by the Modh Vanik Modi Samaj. “I want to emphasize societies that focus on education will succeed. Keeping focusing on ways to make education more accessible to the youth is one of the main ways to success,” he said, adding that “though our (caste) people are late, we are on the right path”.
Modi Shaikshanik Sankul is an educational complex for needy students and will provide them with facilities for holistic development. Addressing a rally at Modhera in Mehsana district on Sunday, the prime minister had said the people of the state blessed him for the last two decades irrespective of his caste and political background.
The prime minister during his three-day visit to poll-bound Gujarat, said “I am glad more youngsters are focusing on medicine, engineering, and other such streams. At the same time, I want to stress the importance of skill development as well. In the future, if a student does not have a degree but has some skill then it will be enough. If a child does not want to study, we should give him some skills,”. He said this was a good achievement for a caste whose numbers are minuscule and whose members are mostly middle-class.
