PM Modi  inaugurates 103rd Indian Science Congress in Mysuru

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said good governance is not limited to policy and decision-making, it is also "about integrating science and technology in choices we make and strategies we pursue".

Inaugurating the 103rd Indian Science Congress here, the prime minister appreciated the event's theme -- 'Science and Technology for Indigenous Development in India', saying it was a fitting tribute to former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam's vision.

"It's a great pleasure to begin this year in company of leaders of science from India and the world," Modi said addressing a huge gathering of about 15,000 scientists.

The event is being held at the University of Mysore from January 3 to 7.

Five distinguished academicians from abroad,  including Indian origin Mathematician Prof. Manjul Bhargava, will be speaking in the Congress.
