The participation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the National Youth Festival in Hubballi-Dharwad on January 12 will give an opportunity and inspiration for the youth of this region, said Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Tuesday.
Speaking to reporters, Bommai said the young delegates from 28 states and 8 union territories will be participating in this youth festival to showcase their talent. There will be various cultural and sports activities during all seven days. It is for the first time the national youth festival is being held in the north Karnataka region and will help the youth come up in all the fields.

“PM Modi has formulated the schemes like New Education Policy and Atma Nirbhar Bharat. The visit of Modi will inspire the youth. All the preparations are in place for Modi’s visit to Hubballi. Though there will be no roadshow by the PM the people are allowed to stand on both sides of the road from the airport up to the venue. The PM will acknowledge the people’s response,” he said.
