Narendra Modi: I am different, can bring change

Narendra Modi

Modi also said the political fraternity should not see the youth merely as "new age voters" nor indulge in such "vote bank politics". "For the people from the political world, youth are merely new age voters. I think differently. They should not be treated as new age voters, but new age power that can change things for the better," the CM said.

Highlighting his achievements in the fields of agriculture, industry and the services sector, Modi also gave a peak into his larger vision of running the government, that revolves around "miniumum government" and creating a conducive situation for companies to grow at a "fast speed".

"The government has no business doing business. Minimum government, maximum governance is my principle," the Gujarat CM said.

"If we have to compete against China," he went on, "global thrust needs to be given to three areas skill development is one key; work on very high scales; and act at very fast speed. We need to internalise this," Modi said, again citing the Gujarat example.

Stressing the need for India to leverage its "demographic opportunity" in the form of a young population, Modi also exhorted the students of the Delhi University college to seize the moment.

There were some protests outside the venue but inside he found a receptive audience.
