Modi: Good governance must integrate policy with science and tenchnology


Mysuru:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said good governance is not limited to policy and decision-making, it is also “about integrating science and technology in choices we make and strategies we pursue”.

Inaugurating the 103rd Indian Science Congress here, the prime minister appreciated the event’s theme – ‘Science and Technology for Indigenous Development in India’, saying it was a fitting tribute to former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam’s vision.

“It’s a great pleasure to begin this year in the company of leaders of science from India and the world,” Modi said addressing a huge gathering of about 15,000 scientists.

The event is being held at the University of Mysore from January 3 to 7. (IANS)
