On July 6, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that the Center and the Assam administration were collaborating to lessen the difficulties that residents were experiencing due to the continued flooding in the state. The state and its people are struggling as a result of the disastrous floods this year, but Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and his team are working hard to help the affected people, he said while virtually kicking off the Assamese daily ‘Agradoot’ Golden Jubilee festivities.

“I have been regularly speaking with the CM and others. I want to assure the people of Assam that the central and the state governments are working together to minimise people’s problems,” he said. Modi said that while India lagged during the last three industrial revolutions as most people did not have access to its vast knowledge, which is in Indian languages, the country, backed by digital knowledge, will lead the fourth industrial revolution of the 21st century.

”Before Independence, our languages didn’t grow. In fact, they shrunk as most people didn’t have access to knowledge. The space for innovation and invention was limited. But the fourth industrial revolution in the 21st century will be led by India on the back of digital knowledge,” he said.

The prime minister added that “as we are completing 75 years of independence, there is one question we must ask. Why should intellectual space be limited to a few people who know a particular language? This question is not only of emotion but also of scientific logic."

Focus to provide knowledge in our own languages

“Our focus is to provide knowledge in our own languages. So, we are working on National Language Translation Mission. The National Education Policy (NEP) also encourages mother tongues so that knowledge of our own people can be gained in our own languages,” Modi said.

“The expansion of Indian languages was stopped during the long period of slavery, and modern epistemology, research was limited to a few languages. A very large section of India did not have access to those languages, to that knowledge," the prime minister said.

The prime minister said an attempt is being made to connect all Indians with the internet. “It is important to connect everyone with the internet. It will help in making our endeavour of ’one India, best India’ a success,” he added.
