India needs to have a vibrant citizenry where a normal citizen has the power to question the State and challenge its decisions; he should have a stake in the State, proposed MP, Varun Gandhi. While addressing a jam-packed auditorium of Amity students on the topic “Ideas for New India” at University Campus, Sector-125 Noida, the young MP said, “Governance should be decentralized in India. One person taking care of millions of people in a Constituency may or may not be capable enough to do so, therefore people need to come forward and get involved in the societal affairs.” "We need to impose faith in ourselves and think ways to make a difference to the society. With vigilant Judiciary and Media, people of the country are looking forward to new and vibrant voices of the youth, who are capable enough to change even the policies in the country," he added. Motivating the youth, he said, “The present century is about three things- Ideas, Institutions, and Individuals. Dozens of entrepreneurs, now, are coming up with new ideas and are getting funding from various sources. Young entrepreneurs don’t need money to make money; all they need is an idea.” The MP rued the fact that in India, there is no continuity in Politics, people are still voting in the name of “Caste” and “Religion” and very few are interested in knowing the vision of a Candidate. He stressed, “Feudalism is not over in India; its rife and running in the blood of people. 99.9% of the Parliamentarians are children of dead or retired politicians and there are very few people who are there because of their capabilities or great vision.” Dr. Aseem Chauhan Chancellor, Amity University, thanked Varun Gandhi for sparing time and enlightening the young students with his wisdom and experience. Dr. Gurinder Singh- Amity Group Additional Vice Chancellor & Director General, Amity International Business School also addressed the gathering.
