Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday Indian start-ups were the “turning point” of India’s growth story.

Modi, who addressed the nation through his monthly ‘Mann Ki Baat’ broadcast, said start-ups had helped bring in investments.

“In 2015, there were 9-10 Unicorns (start-ups worth more than 1 billion dollars) in India. Now there are over 70,” he said. “The youth is solving solutions to global problems. The startup trend is the turning point of India's growth story. Youth of today is imbued with three significant qualities: innovation, risk-taking, and "can-do spirit", which, in their harmonious blend, throw up magical results.”

He also used the programme to extol the spiritual legacy of Vrindavan. Modi, who addresses the nation through his broadcast on the last Sunday of each month, said Vrindavan was a tangible manifestation of God’s love.

He mentioned projects that his government introduced, such as the affordable healthcare scheme Ayushman Bharat, and said that they had touched many lives and served as an inspiration for other development programmes.
