J&K: Poonch youth gets appreciation letter from PM Modi

Jammu, May 1 (UNI) Jammu and Kashmir based social worker, Nazakat Choudhary from Mendhar, district Poonch, who participated in the ‘Ek Bharat Shreshta Bharat Yuva Sangam’ initiative of the Prime Minister is unlikely to forget the experience.
The Prime Minister has responded to his letter lauding this initiative which gave him the opportunity to travel to Assam and experience its diversity and culture.
A brainchild of the Ministry of Education, ‘Yuva-Sangam’, Youth Exchange program under ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’ aims to strengthen people-to-people connections, especially between youth of different states and introduce them to the vast culture and values of India.
“The idea of Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat was conceptualized and structured by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ji to create a cultural connect between the various states of India,” said a handout issued here.
While appreciating that Nazakat enjoyed his trip to Assam, the PM expressed his hope that he would continue undertaking more such journeys in the future. In his letter PM Modi said, “The success of any important initiative is measured by its impact upon people.
The greatest sense of satisfaction is experienced by a public servant when people write to convey that a particular event has transformed their life. This vigour and enthusiasm of young people like yourself, to explore different regions of our country and to keep yourself open to new experiences is truly commendable. Your journey from the land of Tawi to the land of Brahmaputra has clearly brought two regions of the nation closer.”
The letter added, “India is home to many cultures, cuisines, customs and lifestyles, where people belonging to different communities, practising different faiths, speaking different languages, observing different rituals not only coexist but also celebrate each other’s diverse way of life. It is this aspect of our nation that has drawn the world towards us.”
While expressing his desire to make the northeast region an economic powerhouse the PM added, “During the last few years, we have worked to ensure that our beautiful Northeastern region is ‘Na Dil Se Duur, Na Dilli Se Duur’.
As a result, you may have observed that an unprecedented transformation is taking place across sectors. Be it culture or agriculture, commerce or connectivity, the region is becoming a growth engine of India.”
