Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Tuesday urged youth visiting the state, under his government’s flagship “Connect with Your Roots” programme, to act as the state’s ambassadors in countering the negative propaganda being spread in foreign lands by vested interests.
Captain Amarinder was interacting with the third batch comprising 17 youth from the UK and one from France over tea at his official residence here. The youth are on a 10-day visit to different parts of the state.
“You are our ambassadors, who would act as a force multiplier in dispelling any misgiving about Punjab, which some vested interests were trying to create through negative propaganda abroad,” he told the youth, urging them to harness full potential of the innovative initiative to further complement and create awareness about the state’s growth story.
The Chief Minister called upon the youth to imbue their on-ground experience of the real progress and development made by Punjab in the last two years in the fields of information technology, industry and agriculture, and to disseminate it on their return to their homes.
The objective of the programme was to enable you to enjoy Punjab’s rich cultural and social heritage first hand, he told the youth, wishing them the best of time in the state.
