July 1, 2019
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who came to power after being voted for the second time in Lok Sabha elections hosted his regular Mann Ki Baat radio programme on Sunday. This time, Modi highlighted on the need to conserve water and also thanked the people for voting him back to power. He added that people must not take the power of democracy lightly.
Four months, thousands of letters, mails and suggestions… It has been a long time. I have missed #MannKiBaat and am glad we have once again connected through the radio. Here are some thoughts on the last four months. #MannKiBaat-Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India.
Modi highlighted on three main things. He asked people from all walks of life to conserve water as much as possible. Secondly, he requested people to focus on traditional methods of water conservation. Thirdly, to share details about individuals or NGO's that work on water conservation. Modi also ensured to pass the message of the importance of yoga in lives of people.
Modi's 'Mann Ki Baat' is very popular amongst people since this is one of his main ways of addressing people across India. He has held over 53 'Mann Ki Baat' programmes during his tenure between October 2014 and February 2019.
"#MannKiBaat is unique, apolitical and raises awareness of social issues - it runs on ideas of the citizens - their thoughts, questions and stories. It magnifies important stories of the masses to make them national talking points, tweeted Manohar Lal, Chief Minister of Haryana.
