New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday said that nation building should become a national movement and every individual should be associated with it.
Addressing students here on Teachers' Day, Modi said if every individual associates himself with the task of nation building, "we can go very far".
He said people who had achieved something in life and taken to a profession such as doctors and engineers should teach students in a school for one period in a week.
"There is need to make nation building into national movement. There is need to associate everyone...The emphasis should be on how should be the national character," he said.
Modi also said he did not feel that adverse situations can come in the way of ambition of a determined individual.
