Mantra for New Year should be ‘reform, perform, transform’: Modi

New Delhi: Calling for ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the mantra for the New Year should be “reform, perform, transform.” The PM was delivering the inaugural address for the 85th Sivagiri Pilgrimage Celebrations, at Sivagiri Mutt, Varkala, Kerala via video conference.

He also said in 2018, people should work towards all- round development of the nation even as his government pushes for reforms measures to tackle black money, corruption, benami properties and terrorism.

In his first remarks on the issue of instant triple talaq after a bill banning it was cleared by Lok Sabha, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said after “years of suffering”, Muslim women have finally found a way out to “free” themselves from the practice.

“Without referring to the Muslim women Protection of Rights on Marriage Bill passed by Lok Sabha last week, Modi said Muslim women were facing hardships due to the prevailing practice of instant triple talaq for years. “But now they have found way to free themselves (from the practice),” he said.

Sivagiri is the holy abode of one of the great saints and social reformers Sree Narayan Guru.
