Poorest should also have access to science: PM Modi

Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the poorest should also have access to science and technology.

"To me, the arms of science, technology and innovation must reach the poorest, the remotest and the most vulnerable person," Modi said in his address at the 102nd Indian Science Congress 2015.

He added: "Our investments in science and technology are far too concentrated in the agencies of central government and must become more broad-based."

The prime minister also said that there was "mood of optimism for change in the country, the energy to pursue it, and confidence to achieve it".
