Individual ideologies should not oppose national interest: PM in JNU

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday unveiled a statue of Swami Vivekananda on the JNU campus — for long an ideological battlefield for the Left and Hindutva groups — and asserted that people’s ideologies should be seen standing with and not against the country in matters of national interest.Giving priority to one’s ideology over national interest has harmed the democratic system of the country a lot, Modi said in his address to students after unveiling the statue through video-conferencing.

“Everybody is proud of his ideology and this is natural. But our ideology should be seen standing with the nation and not against it in matters of national interest,” he said.
