LUCKNOW: Prime Minister
on Wednesday urged the youth to develop the qualities of self-confidence and introspection, saying this was the aim of
the New Education Policy
announced earlier this year by his government.
"The aim of the new National Education Policy is that the youth of the country gets to know itself," he said at the centennial celebrations of University of Lucknow.
In his address through video conference, the Prime Minister also took an indirect dig at the previous governments, finding fault with the functioning for years of the rail coach factory in Rae Bareli.
He did not, however, name Congress or its president
, who represents Rae Bareli in Parliament.
PM Modi released a commemorative coin and a postal stamp to mark the University's centennial foundation day.
