Mysuru (IANS/Agencies) : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said good governance is not limited to policy and decision-making, it is also “about integrating science and technology in choices we make and strategies we pursue”.
Inaugurating the 103rd Indian Science Congress here, the prime minister appreciated the event’s theme — ‘Science and Technology for Indigenous Development in India’, saying it was a fitting tribute to former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam’s vision.
“It’s a great pleasure to begin this year in company of leaders of science from India and the world,” Modi said addressing a huge gathering of about 15,000 scientists.
The event is being held at the University of Mysore from January 3 to 7.
Five distinguished academicians from abroad, including Indian origin Mathematician Prof. Manjul Bhargava, will be speaking in the Congress.
