New Delhi: Addressing the nation through his monthly radio programe Mann Ki Baat on Sunday Prime Minister Naredndra Modi urged the youths to vote and emphasized the need to encourage Khadi industry in the country.
The PM said, “We must promote Khadi. Buy anything related to Khadi this Diwali. What government couldn’t do by spending so much on its advertisments, you people have doubled the sale of Khadi. I am again making an appeal for October 2 to please buy some Khadi product.”
“I thought of a new experiment for Mann ki Baat programme. Asked people to suggest issues. Around 55,000 people gave their suggestions for Mann ki Baat. More than 90% people talked about positive things.” He added.
Talking about the declassification of Netaji files Modi said, “I have wanted to invite the entire family of Subhas Bose to my residence and in October over 50 family members will come to 7RCR.”
Praising the Indian army for their immense task of protecting the country’s borders Modi said, “On Ganesh Chaturthi, I went to Shauryanjali exhibition. History was recreated at Shauryanjali. We have always heard about the valour of our forces, but now it’s time we see it ourselves at this exhibition. I couldn’t spent much time there, but you would need some time to see the entire exhibition.”
He also urged the people to voluntarily give away with the LPG subsidy. The PM said, “I’d requested the people of this country to voluntaraly give away their subsidy. Today, not only rich people, but common people have come forward to give away their subsidy for a cause.”
Finishing his speech Modi said that the Mann ki Baat has literally turned ionto he Mann Ki Baat of the people.
This is the 12th edition of Mann ki Baat.
