“Bengaluru is No 1 on India’s innovation index. Bengaluru is the home of technology. It is an inclusive and innovative city. Bengaluru is a hub of technology and we are using our talent for global growth. India is using technology as a weapon in the war against poverty,” he said.

“India jumped 40th rank in global innovation index this year. In 2015 we were ranked 81. The number of unicorn startups in India has doubled, we are now the 3rd largest in world. This is due to India’s talent pool,” PM Modi said.

“During the pandemic, low data costs helped poor students attend online classes. Else students would have been deprived of education for 2 whole years. India is using technology as a weapon against poverty.”
