He also urged the students to actively participate in sports and aim for a Gold in Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
“In 2020 during ToKyo Olympics there should be some gold medals from KLES,” he said.
“I invite 10 public and 10 private universities to come forward and take a pledge to make a place for themselves in the top 100 universities of the world.”
“I agree that there is pain because of my decision, but the country will gain more,” said Mr. Modi. “I would like to tell honest people, do not give anyone dishonest people your money in haste, you have time till December 31st to exchange money. The government is bound till December 31st to give you the full worth of your money, exactly Rs 500, ie. Rs 499 and 100 paise worth of it,” he said to cheers. “Give me 70 months, I will clean all the corruption in the country,” he told the crowd.
“The cleanliness drive against black money commenced two years ago,” said Mr. Modi. He started with smaller doses initially to tackle the ‘nationwide disease’ and a bigger dose on Nov.8 by demonetising Rs.500 and Rs.1000 denominations.
