Distributing about 71,000 appointment letters to newly inducted recruits under Rozgar Mela on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged them to focus on capacity building to increase efficiencies while playing their roles in various government departments.
Addressing the appointees via video conferencing, the Prime Minister said, “I would urge the youth of the country to take advantage of new opportunities. I am sure that you would leave no stone unturned to augment your capacity. Today’s appointment letters are just an entry point. That would mean a whole world of progress is opening up to you.”
“Focus on increasing your abilities while working. Increase your abilities while learning. Learn good things from your seniors. I try to learn continuously. I never allow the student inside me to die. I keep learning from everybody, from smallest of things,” the Prime Minister continued.
Modi said that it is due to this habit he is able to do more than one work at one point of time.
I never hesitate in handling more than one work at one point of time, he added.
