Mann ki Baat

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed on Sunday the 52nd episode of his radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’. This was the first episode of PM Modi’s radio talk in 2019. Modi mentioned the names of icons from history — of India in general and Bengal in particular — like Subhas Chandra Bose and Rabindranath Tagore in the talk. He said the great nation of India has given birth to many great men and those great men have done some amazing, unforgettable work for humanity. Our country is bahuratna-vasundhara.

One of these great men was Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. On 23 January, the whole nation celebrated his birth anniversary in a different style. On Netaji’s birth anniversary, I had the privilege of inaugurating a museum dedicated to the heroes who contributed in the struggle of India’s freedom.

Mann ki Baat: Record number of space missions

The number of space missions undertaken in the last four years almost equal the number undertaken between independence and 2014. Skies and the stars are always attractive to children. Our space programme gives children an opportunity to think big and move beyond those limits which were considered impossible till now, the prime minister said.

Voters born in 21st century to vote for the first time

This is the first time that youngsters born in the 21st century will vote, the PM said. It’s time to connect their dreams with the dreams of the country. I hope a large number of young people will be registered as voters and will vote, said Modi.

“I appreciate the Election Commission for making continuous efforts to strengthen our democracy. I also commend the Election Commission of all the States, all the security personnel and other employees, who participate in the voting process and ensure free and fair elections,” Modi said.
