Asked about the decision by the USA and India to establish two-by-two ministerial dialogue, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said, "We noticed relevant report".

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi has always placed emphasis on economic development for the growth of the country and now NITI Aayog is looking for solutions for the jobs by turning its attention to start-ups.

Day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi delivered his fourth - and the shortest - Independence Day speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has hit back. "As a colleague I feel the need to appreciate certain remarkable and distinct patterns emerging from his address, which reflect in his entire concept of governance, nearly like mantras".

Asserting that there would be no let up in India's fight against terrorism, the Prime Minister called upon militants to shun the gun and join the mainstream. "At this point, the Prime Minister should have assured the people of the nation about national interest being in safe hands", he said.

A senior economist who did not want to be identified, said, "The question that the paper (study) addresses is the wrong question if we want to know how much black money held in old notes was immobilised or caught".

Under the "Champions Of Change" programme, organised by NITI Aayog, young entrepreneurs have already begun deliberations on the six themes and its execution.

Referring to Prime Minister Modi's message empathising with the grieving kin of the Gorakhpur and the flood victims, the Union Minister said it was a reassuring statement which showed that even in its celebratory moments, the nation is sensitive enough to not forget those suffering and unable to celebrate.

The Prime Minister emphasized the importance of good teachers in society. Each must shape up and take responsibility in "New India".

Modi said more than Rs 1.75 lakh crore deposited in banks was under the scanner and black money of Rs 2 lakh crore was forced to be deposited in banks.

He said as the middlemen are out of work now, they are the ones who are shouting the most about unemployment.

The entrepreneurs will present papers to the Prime Minister on how private sector can enable innovation, job creation and income enhancement.

"In the recent past, we have seen the gau rakshaks attack innocent people in the name of nationalism and cow protection". This is significant, because herein lies the difference with the anti-graft stand led by "India Against Corruption" movement that shook the previous scam-ridden UPA regime.

Another way, he said, is to recognise those hitherto unknown heroes who helped to transform the society.
