New Delhi: Addressing the nation, today, through his bi-monthly Mann Ki Baat radio talk, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, that the action plan for the ‘Start-up India, Stand up India’  initiative would be announced on January 16.

“On January 16, the government of India will unveil the full Action Plan of Start-up India, Stand-up India,” he said

“I had briefly touched upon ‘Start Up India, Stand Up India’ in my August 15 address from Red Fort. Start Up India, Stand Up India has brought a huge opportunity for the youth. On January 16, we are coming out with an action plan on start-ups,” he added.

He emphasised on the inevitability of innovation for the advancement of the world.

“Can India be a ‘Start-up Capital’? Can the youth in the states have the opportunities in the form of start-ups, with innovations, whether it be manufacturing, service sector or agriculture? In everything, there should be freshness, new ways, new thinking. The world cannot move ahead without innovation,” he said.

He also added that the nation’s premier technical institutes would be co-opted into the scheme to link more youths of the country.

“This programme will be connected to the country’s IITs, IIMs, central universities and NITs. Wherever there is youth, they will be linked through ‘live connectivity,” he said.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “silence” over the rape incidents in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua and Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao was “unacceptable”. He prodded him to speak.

He also accused the Bharatiya Janata Party governments in these states of “protecting rapists”. “Mr Prime Minister, your silence is unacceptable. What do you think about the growing violence against women and children? Why are accused rapists and murderers protected by the state? India is waiting. Speak up,” Gandhi said in a tweet.

Gandhi, who had led the protest Thursday night, was joined by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and her husband Robert Vadra, hundreds of party workers and senior party leaders.

During the protest, Gandhi slammed the Prime Minister over the repeated incidents of violence, rape and murder of women in the country. “We want the government to take action. Today, women are feeling insecure to move out of their houses. Somewhere a child, a woman is raped, killed and we want that the government should resolve this. The women of the country should feel safe,” he had said. IANS
