Youth capable of conquering Corruption, poverty: Dr. JP


Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaparkash Narayan has said that Indian youth are second to none in their talent and ability and commitment to the country.

Greeting young men and women on the eve of National Youth Day on January 12, Dr. JP called upon youth to maintain unity without prejudice and harmonize individual gain with public good. "If we put our heads together, we can and we will conquer the twin great challenges of this decade – corruption eating into the vitals of the nation, and poverty sapping people's energies.

Dr. JP called upon the youth to remember what Vivekananda had said: India is a proud, self-confident nation with 5000 years of civilization and culture and that spiritualism must be reinterpreted to suit the modern age in an inclusive manner.

It is time we built a nation which can stand tall and proud in the comity of nations, he added.
