NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed the first Mann Ki Baat of 2022, where he paid tribute to Mahatma Gandhi and spoke about the contribution of big educational reformers who took their teachings beyond the classroom.
The 85th edition of the PM’s radio programme coincided with the death anniversary of Bapu Mahatma Gandhi and therefore was aired half an hour late at 11:30 am.
Here’s what the PM said today:
‘Amar Jawan Jyoti is a symbol of sacrifice’
During his radio address, PM Modi urged everyone to visit National War Memorial with their family. Some veterans wrote to me that ‘Amar Jawan Jyoti’ is a symbol of their sacrifice,” he said. We have seen that ‘Amar Jawan Jyoti’ near India Gate and the flame at the nearby National War Memorial have been merged into one. On this emotional moment, many countrymen and the family of martyrs had tears in their eyes,” he said.
Corruption is like termite which makes country hollow’
“We have to get rid of it as soon as possible. It hollows the country like a termite. All of us have to get rid of this termite as soon as possible and for this it is very important that we give priority to our duties. While reading a postcard sent by Navya Verma from Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj, in which she wrote about India of her dream in 2047 where everybody lives a dignified life, where farmers are prosperous and where there is no corruption, PM Modi said, “Your dream for the nation is praiseworthy. The country is also taking rapid strides in this direction.”
“More than one crore children had sent me their Mann Ki Baat via postcard. These postcards had come from many parts of the country & even from abroad, such as Croatia. These postcards give a glimpse of broad and comprehensive outlook of our new generation for our country’s future.”
‘Reformers have made education joyful’
If we look back at our history, we will see so many individuals who have been associated with education, he said. They have founded several institutions. We are also seeing Indians across all walks of life contributing resources so that the process of education can be made more joyful and interesting.
‘People emotional over MP tigress’ death’
Talking about the death of the Madhya Pradesh tigress, PM said, India respects its flora and fauna and this can be seen from a recent happening in Madhya Pradesh. “A glimpse of our culture was seen when a Tigress in Pench Tiger Reserve of the state bid adieu to the world. People used to call this tigress Collar Wali Tigress.”
‘Nearly 60% vaccinated in 15-18 age group’
The Prime Minister added that nearly 60% in the 15-18 age group have been vaccinated. “We must continue to focus on taking Covid precautions as the country successfully fights the third wave of the deadly pandemic.” He further appealed to everyone to not forget government’s Swachhata Abhiyan and its motto of Vocal for Local.
