NEW DELHI: President Pranab Mukherjee today said science and technology must be made “more inclusive” and not just benefit “a select few” sectors.

“Our pursuits in science and technology have to be more inclusive and encompassing, improving the lives of our vast population,” Mukherjee said while addressing an event to mark the 19th National Technology Day here.

The President said that disparities between haves and have-nots, urban and rural areas, and exclusion or marginalisation of certain groups could give rise to social unrest.

“It is crucial that more technological innovations are geared towards eliminating these disparities and differences. In our endeavour for global excellence, not even a single citizen should be left behind,” he said. (AGENCIES)
