Shri Vijay Goel

I feel Privileged to take charge of the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports. On this occasion, I extend my warm wishes to all the countrymen, especially the youth.
Indian is one of the most youthful nations in the world, with over 65% population under 35 years of age. The Government, under the leadership of Hon'ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi ji, is fully committed for development and empowerment of youth so that they can realise their full potential and also contribute to the nation-building process. Not only that, the Government is focused on youth-led development and firmly holds the view that the Youth should be active drivers and not just passive recipients of the development process. Sports play a key role in development of personality of the youth. In fact, sports should be a way of life. I call upon the youth to make sports an integral part of their life.
It shall be my constant endeavour to work for the empowerment of the youth of our nation, under the able leadership of our Hon'ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi ji.
