Prime Minister Narendra Modi has virtually unveiled the Vivekananda statue in the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus. The statue which was scheduled to be unveiled earlier this year was delayed due to the COVID pandemic. The statue has been a bone of contention between the students and the administration. The JNUSU decided to protest against the unveiling of the statue today by Prime Minister Modi.
PM Modi in his speech today spoke about Swami Vivekananda and shared a very valuable lesson from his life. The lesson focuses on atmanirbharta and how one should be self-reliant. PM Modi adds that our atmanirbharta will not only benefit us but the world as well.
