Duty of citizen does not end with voting: Birla
 
New Delhi: The duty of a citizen does not end with voting, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla said on Saturday, urging youth to take interest in legislative process.

Speaking at an event at Ramjas College here, the Speaker said the the youth need to understand the thoughts and philosophies of the country's great personalities and to follow their ideals.

Underlining the importance of citizens' participation in democratic processes, Birla said: "How we can bring changes in our democratic country so that every citizen can be a stakeholder of progress? This responsibility is also of the youth.

"In a democracy, our duty does not end with casting a vote. After formation of a government, it is the responsibility of the youth to participate in every decision and policies of the government. When a draft is brought before a legislature, the youth should study and analyse it and offer their suggestions.

"This will make legislation meaningful and robust," he said.

Emphasizing on innovation, Birla said innovation should take place in all walks of life, not just in start-ups. "While making ourselves self-reliant, we should provide employment to others. Therefore, the youth of India should constantly experiment and innovate," said Birla.

Birla also stressed on character building in education, and talked about the Gurukul system of ancient India.

"Governments can only make policies, bring schemes, but the important responsibility of implementing them, accelerating the development of the country lies with the youth."
