In his felicitation speech, Union Minister Jitendra Singh said the presence of 12 engineers in the first 25 toppers of this year who were selected on the basis of CSE 2019 will add value to the work assigned to them in carrying out various specialised schemes and programmes introduced by the Modi government. "He said, they are entering the services at one of the best times in the history of post-independent India, when under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India was on the ascent and would soon be a frontline nation of the world," an official statement said.
