Addressing the tech community PM Modi said: “Today, when the entire nation is working towards creating an Aatmanirbhar Bharat, it is a good opportunity to give direction to the efforts of our start-up and tech ecosystem to innovate, develop and promote homegrown apps. Momentum to their hard-work and mentorship to their talent to evolve apps which can satisfy our market as well as compete with the world.”
