ABP Network CEO Avinash Pandey said, “The inaugural edition of ABP Network’s Ideas of India is going to be a momentous event. This is not merely an event of importance for our network but will be the most elaborate and diverse platform to discuss India’s journey of 75 years as an independent nation, our present challenges, and future opportunities as we grow as a nation in the changing world order. I am personally eager to know the ideas of the brightest and most successful Indians of our age across sectors. This is another path-finding initiative in a series of steps where we have revolutionised the coverage of news and current affairs to capture the thoughts and imagination of our beloved viewers. This forum will be developed into a significant annual event where we will explore India's ideas and what it means to be an Indian in various aspects of life.”
The summit will be presented by Wild Stone, with Nerolac Paints as associate partner, wellness partner Himalaya and state partner Government of Chhattisgarh.
