Speaking on the importance of Sangams in the country, be it the confluence of rivers, ideology, science or knowledge, PM said that every confluence of culture and traditions is celebrated and revered in India. He remarked that in reality, it is a celebration of India’s might and characteristics, thus making the Kashi-Tamil Sangam unique.

Throwing light on the connection between Kashi and Tamil Nadu, the Prime Minister said that on one hand, Kashi is the cultural capital of India whereas Tamil Nadu and Tamil culture is the centre of India's antiquity and pride. Drawing an analogy to the confluence of the Ganga and Yamuna rivers, the Prime Minister said the Kashi-Tamil Sangam is equally holy which engulfs endless opportunities and strength in itself. The Prime Minister congratulated the Ministry of Education and the Government of Uttar Pradesh for this momentous gathering and thanked central universities like IIT, Madras and BHU for extending their support to the programme. 

He underlined that Kashi and Tamil Nadu are timeless centres of our culture and civilisation. He informed that both Sanskrit and Tamil are one of the most ancient languages that existed. Be it music, literature or art, the Prime Minister remarked that Kashi and Tamil Nadu have always been a source of art.

The Prime Minister underlined that the Kashi-Tamil Sangam is taking place during the AzadiKaAmritKaal. He said, “In AmritKaal, our resolutions will be fulfilled by the unity of the whole country.” He stated that India is a nation which has lived a natural cultural unity for thousands of years. Throwing light on the tradition of remembering 12 Jyotirlingas, he said that we start our day by remembering the spiritual unity of the country. Modi also lamented the lack of efforts to strengthen this tradition and heritage of thousands of years. He further added that Kashi-Tamil Sangamam will become a platform for this resolution today while making us realise our duties, and being a source of energy to strengthen national unity.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath while delivering his address said that Kashi Tamil Sangamam organised under the guidance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi with an aim to preserve and enrich the glorious heritage of philosophy, culture and literature of North and South India in the spirit of "Ek Bharat, Shreshtha Bharat".
