PM Narendra Modi on Friday said that transformation in governance is needed for the country to progress in an inter-connected world and meet the aspirations of its youth.
"Development now depends on the quality of institutions and ideas. Thirty years ago, a country might have been able to look inward and find its solutions. Today, countries are inter-dependent and inter-connected," the Prime Minister said at a Niti Aayog function in the national capital.
"The transformation of India cannot happen without a transformation of governance. We cannot march through the 21st century with the administrative systems of the 19th century," he added.
Modi said that no country can afford any longer to develop in isolation. Younger generation is thinking and aspiring so differently, that government can no longer afford to remain rooted in the past.
