At Pragati Maidan in New Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched India's largest drone festival and 150 remote pilot certificates.

On Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched 150 remote pilot licences at India’s largest drone festival in New Delhi.

“India will be a drone hub by 2030,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday at the ‘Bharat Drone Mahotsav 2022’ at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi.

“I suggest that all government departments spend two to three hours at this festival,” the Prime Minister stated. “Every stall offers things created in India.”

The Prime Minister congratulated the 150 drone farmers who were honoured today.

“I agree, new technology causes upheaval,” he continued. I recall being terrified while purchasing rations as a child. “What if the rations were gone by the time my turn came?” I used to be afraid.

Meanwhile, PM Modi made a swipe at previous governments, saying that governments previously utilised technology to be “anti-poor.” “The government did not use technology in governance prior to 2014.” The failure to use technology has harmed the country’s poor and middle classes, according to the PM.
