Nationalism does not mean Bharat mata ki Jai: Venkaiah Naidu

March 24 : Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu has called upon the youth to strive to build a new India, which is free of fear, caste barriers and urban rural divide and said nationalism does not mean saying “Bharat mata ki jai.”

“Nationalism does not mean Bharat Mata ki Jai. Sabke liye jai ho, that’s patriotism. If you discriminate people on the basis of religion, caste, urban-rural divide then you are not saying Bharat mata ki Jai Ho,” he said.

“The overhauling of the education system is long overdue. We must eliminate totally colonial mindset, teach real history, ancient civilisation, culture & heritage and instill values of nationalism among students,” Naidu said while interacting with Delhi University students.

Naidu asked the youth develop a constructive attitude and focus on achieving perfection in whatever they do.

He urged the youth to learn preserving traditional values, shun negativism, develop positive attitude, be socially conscientious, peace-loving and affectionate.
“There are a lot of opportunities awaiting us. Youngsters must seize this opportunity&strive to build up a New India free of fear, corruption, hunger, discrimination, illiteracy, poverty, caste barriers&urban-rural divide. That’s the New India we want to see,” he said.
