"If you transform your talent into determination to perform, no one can stop India from becoming a superpower. If you want to contribute to the country, then emulate the qualities of Swami Vivekananda to work for others," said Singh addressing the closing ceremony of the 19th National Youth Festival here.
"We want to create a situation where our youth produce the kind of goods with Made in India label that spell 'super quality' globally," Singh said.
"For easing the unemployment problem in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to help those willing to work, have skill and are qualified," he said.
"India is a young country. It is passing through challenging times. Some elements are trying to influence the youth through drug addiction. Sports persons have to start a campaign against drug addiction," Singh said.

The union minister also remembered young freedom fighters of Assam, including 16-year-old Kanaklata Barua, who fell to the bullets of the British as well as Kushal Konwar and Moniram Dewan, who were hanged.

"Like you, they were youths and thousands sacrificed their life for India to become independent. You are unique talents of this country. In these last five days you had discussions on various issues and we hope you will carry the message across the country," Singh said.
"If anyone asks who was India's global youth, we have to say it was Swami Vivekananda. Through his speech in the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago, he opened the eyes of the world that humanity was above religion," Singh added.
