The Honourable Prime Minister shared the idea of youth becoming the voice of India in his Mann ki Baat address of 31st December, 2017:

“I got an idea whether we could organize a mock parliament in every district of India? Where the youth between 18 and 25 could sit together and brain storm about new India, find ways and chalk our plans. How could we realize our resolves before 2022? How could we build an India of the dreams of our freedom fighters?”

“I propose that a mock Parliament be organized… comprising one young person selected from each district who would participate and deliberate on how a new India could be formed in the next five years. How can resolve be transformed into reality?”

He categorically spoke about giving a chance to the youth to put forth their views on various issues concerning the country. He reiterated his desire to organize the District Youth Parliaments in his address at time of the inaugural of the 22nd National Youth Festival on 12th January 2018.
