Mann Ki Baat: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has questioned the practice of some families to organise weddings abroad. He has urged such celebrations to be held within India.

“I know some people want it. But, let's take ‘vocal for local’ seriously on this level too. There might be facilities there now, but soon India will grow to that level," he said on November 26, coinciding with the commemoration of the Mumbai terror attack.

PM Modi has also urged people to use UPI for all payments for December.

“UPI payments have increased in the past months, and I urge you to only make UPI payments for the upcoming month and write to me about your experience," the prime minister said.

During Mann Ki Baat, he also announced photography awards in meals.
