Jalandhar, January 04, 2019: Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached Lovely Professional University (Punjab), on January 3rd, where he inaugurated world’s largest science meet ‘106th Indian Science Congress (ISC)-2019’ and delivered the inaugural address. Feeling happy to be in the company of great scientists and scholars from across India and abroad, PM Modi congratulated ISCA for selection of the theme of the event this year - ‘Future India: Science and Technology’. Reflecting on it, he shared that India's true strength will be in connecting its science, technology, and innovation with its people.

Recalling great Indian scientists including J.C. Bose, C.V. Raman and more for their services to the people through minimum resources under maximum struggle, he underlined that through modern science, India is transforming its present and working continuously to secure its future. Recalling two former PMs for their joint slogan “Jai Jawan, Jai Kissan, Jai Vigyan” given to the country, he laid utmost importance to research in the country by further adding to it “Jai Anusndhan”. He stressed that the pursuit of science can be fulfilled through the generation of profound and disruptive knowledge, and then use of that for socio-economic good.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that India has made significant progress in ‘Ease of Doing Business’ index but a lot more was needed with respect to ‘Ease of Living’ index. He called on the scientific fraternity to develop simple and affordable technologies that can connect with the common man to increase ease of living.

 “Research for research sake does not help. We are building an ecosystem to commercialize innovations to benefit the farming community and common people. We have set up more incubation centers in the last four years than in the last 40 years,” added Mr. Modi.
