Prime Minister had called upon the youth to visit 15 tourist places

In Mann Ki Baat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had called upon the people, especially the youth, to visit at least 15 Indian tourist destinations in Dekho Apna Desh. The PM had said that India has good tourist places even from abroad. I call upon the youth to know the heritage of rich historical tourist places of their country instead of traveling abroad. With this, where the youth will get an opportunity to know the unknown India, as well as employment opportunities will be available to the local youth. For a self-reliant India, youth should take forward such schemes.
