Narendra Modi interacts with Delhi youth
New Delhi, Oct 3: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was in Delhi on Wednesday at an event where thousands of students from 200 colleges shared their ideas for change in India.

Modi was voted the most popular leader that the students wanted to listen to.

"If you want to change the country, start walking and you will find a way"

He arrived at Delhi's Thyagraj stadium at about 11 in the morning and stayed through the day, as presentations were made and other political leaders spoke.

Relating to his school days, Modi got nostalgic and told, "Before I became Chief Minister, I had not even stood for being elected class monitor in school."

In his concluding address, Modi encouraged and motivated the students by saying, "In my family, no one knew the P of Politics. I used to sell tea on trains and today I stand here in front of you. Stop thinking where you come from. If you want to change the country, start walking and you will find a way. If you move forward with an attitude that gives and not takes, the world will be at your feet."
