Student participants at the mega event said that the youth of the country have an important role in making the nation developed.

“To achieve the goal, the youth will have to play a big role and the Startup Mahakumbh is the first step towards that,” he told IANS.

“About 80 per cent of the people attending the event here are youth,” said another participant, noting that the “Viksit Bharat will have 100 per cent participation from the youth in the country”.
