Sam Pitroda urges youth to be 'change-agents;' calls for liberalised education

Patna, Mon, 02 Apr 2012 ANI

Patna, Apr 2 (ANI): Advisor to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Public Information, Infrastructure and Innovations, Sam Pitroda, has said youth need to become agents of change to facilitate holistic development across the country.

Pitroda made these comments on the sidelines of a convocation ceremony organised by Chandragupt Institute of Management Patna (CIMP) here.

Highlighting the plethora of problems in Indian cities, Pitroda exhorted the country's youth to actively participate and provide their skills in the development and interests of the nation.

"My message to young people is, you have to be change-agents. You have to rebel at times. If you also think like your parents, you are finished. We do not have enough change agents in this system. We need change agents everywhere. We need change agents to clean our garbage, we need change agents to improve our traffic, we need change-agents to provide more energy, improve education, you name it," Pitroda said.

Pitroda further underscored the need to liberalise India's languishing education sector.

"We need to really do what we did to the economy. We liberalised economy, and we need to liberalise education," Pitroda said.

Reflecting on the raging issue of corruption, Pitroda maintained that change in the system was only possible if every individual acted with a conscience.

"Everybody agrees that corruption is a challenge. But by campaigning, you are not going to solve the problem. You can only solve the problem, if enough of us say, I am not corrupt," said Pitroda. (ANI)
