Modi pitches for IT revolution in India

Mumbai, Feb.14: Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Friday pinned hopes on another IT revolution, and said the IT sector has enhanced India’s image across the world.

“Our IT industry and IT manpower have enhanced the image of the country in the world. Now, it is time that IT revolution takes place in India,” he said while addressing a session of the NASSCOM India Leadership Forum through video-conferencing here today.

Modi also said that India should become digital, and knowledge should be imparted to all the people right down to the grass root level.

“India should become digital India. We must be a knowledge-based society and economy. Our markets should become knowledge markets where every seller and purchaser knows everything,” he said.

“Our villages will be knowledge villages. Our workers will be knowledge workers. Our farmers will be knowledge farmers. Use of technology can further enhance grass root information and services,” he added. (ANI)
