Appreciating the organisers of Jagriti Yatra for sourcing self-employment opportunities, President Ram Nath kovind said, “Job creators are the need of the hour and enterprise led development could be the solution. There are immense possibilities for our youth,” while addressing 500 participants of the yatra at Rashtrapati Bhavan in New Delhi.
Covering the country 8000 KM by length and breadth, the yatra is a 15-day long national train journey to promote entrepreneurship by making the youngsters visit 15 different role-models over a period of two weeks, across India in a specially chartered train.
The 10th edition of yatra commenced on December 24 from Mumbai and reached Rashtrapati Bhavan on its Twelth day.
This year, among the participants, 50 percent are women.
