Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskarar awarded to 32 children

This year, the Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar was awarded to thirty-two children for their outstanding abilities and outstanding achievements in the fields of creativity, scholastics, sports, arts, culture, social service and bravery.

The Ministry of Women and Child Development claimed in a statement that the award winners are from 32 districts of the 21 States and territories of the Union.

The Prime Minister said the awards this year are exceptional as the winner received them in the tough times of the COVID-19 outbreak. The Prime Minister noted that the results are remarkable when a small idea is followed by the right action and asked the children to believe in action, as this interplay of ideas and action can cause more acts that encourage people to do more.
