India has ability to become toy hub: PM Modi in Mann Ki Baat

New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday pitched for making India a 'toy hub' as he addressed his monthly radio broadcast 'Mann Ki Baat.'

"During these times, I have been thinking about my young friends...I have been thinking - how can my young friends get more toys, said PM Modi.

"The best toys are those that bring out the creativity," he said.

Modi made an urge to the youth of the country to start-up 'Team up for Toys.'

"There is potential to make toy clusters in India to make our nation a toy hub. We can make toys for the entire world...India has the talent and the ability to become a toy hub," he said.

"This also matches our call for 'Vocal for Local.' I urge our young brothers to make games in India and also on India," he said.

During the address, he also said that on 5th September "we mark Teachers Day and pay tributes to Dr. S. Radhakrishnan."

Greeting everyone on the occasion of Onam, he said these days, the festival of Onam is also being celebrated with fervour.

"The zest of Onam has reached foreign lands. Be it USA, Europe or Gulf countries, the joys of Onam can be felt everywhere. Onam is increasingly turning to be an international festival," Modi said.
