NEW DELHI : rime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that there is a growing sentiment in the country among people that they can also contribute towards nation building and the sentiment of “can do" is fast growing into a mass movement.
The Mann Ki Baat radio programme has become a platform for sharing, learning, and growing together, and people are increasingly taking part and sharing their experiences through it, Modi said during the monthly programme.
“Days go by, weeks change, month after month and year after year, there is a growing sentiment in the people they are not less than anyone and they can also contribute towards nation-building. The attitude of ‘can do’ is fast become a pledge among people and they are energetically expressing themselves. Mann Ki Baat has become a good and smooth platform of sharing, learning and growing together. Every month, thousands of people share their suggestions, efforts, and experiences," he said.
Modi said he had to change the timing of the programme this time because of the Republic Day function. “This is the first Mann Ki Baat programme in 2020 and it is a start of a new decade also," he said.
The radio programme had become a reflection of new Bharat and many issues that have been discussed in the programme have taken the shape of a mass movement in the country, Modi said. “This is an opportunity for us to discuss the achievements of people. I urge everyone to contribute to any of the social issues so it gains greater strength. If 130 crore Indians take one step, then the country will go 130 crore steps forward."
Modi said peace, brotherhood and discussion are the only ways to move forward and solve issues and violence cannot be a solution to any issue. Without naming Kashmir, the PM said that states where violence has taken place should also choose the path of peace and brotherhood because peaceful discussion is the only way to resolve issues. “I appeal to everyone who is using violence and weapons to solve issues in any part of the country to return to peace and they should have faith that all their concerns will be addressed and they should have faith in the country."
