The Minister of State for Electronics & Information Technology and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, Rajeev Chandrasekhar has said that India under Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi offers tremendous opportunities for the young Indians which they can avail by their sheer hard work and capability and not by any affiliations or influence.
