Key Highlights:

  • At the e-conclave, Yog Guru and Owner of PatanjaliBaba Ramdev said, "I want to see the country liberated from caste, region, language, and religion. I have been insisting on this since my childhood. The British looted our country a lot and I still have anger in my mind. There is no enmity as such, but I’m angry. We are free from political slavery, but when will India be free from economic, cultural, and ideological slavery? The question is always on my mind. I want to see India free from all this.”
  • Speaking on the importance of start-ups, Arun Firodia, an industrialist and chairman of Kinetic Group said “Start-up is the key to the future of the country and the government should take the role of giving space to start-ups where there is creativity.”
  • Former Member of Lok Sabha, Nana Patole clarified the vision of the Congress party. He said, "The most important thing right now is to provide employment opportunities. Today, we are reaping the fruits of Rajiv Gandhi's introduction of computers. Today's Indian youth is succeeding all over the world.”
  • At the conclave, Actor, Sachin Pilgaonkar said, “Kolhapur should be renamed as 'Kalapur'. Kolhapur was never the name of that place. The British pronounced the name ‘Kolhapur’ in a different way. I will keep trying for this name change to happen.”
