Mann Ki Baat Highlights: Here's what PM Modi said in his 74th radio address
Aatmanirbhar Bharat is the national spirit of India, said PM Narendra Modi while addressing the nation during the 74th edition of his monthly radio programme, Mann Ki Baat on Sunday.
Here are the key highlights from the speech:
  • PM Modi spoke about the importance of water conservation in our lives.
  • We must understand our responsibility towards water conservation. In a few days, the Jal Shakti Ministry will launch a campaign 'Catch the Rain'. Its slogan is 'Catch the Rain, where it falls, when it falls.'
  • Modi called for a 100-day campaign to clean up all water bodies and prepare them for rainwater harvesting before the monsoon season starts.
  • During this month of 'magh', Haridwar is hosting Kumbh this year. On March 22, World Water Day will be celebrated. To associate 'magh' month with water is that after this month winters and summers begin.
  • Modi praised the 'innovative spirit' of the country and said that Sant Ravidas would have been satisfied to see today's youth.
  • "In the run-up to Mann Ki Baat, I was asked if there was something I missed out on during these long years as chief minister and prime minister. I feel -- it is a regret of sorts that I could not make enough efforts to learn the world's oldest language Tamil. Tamil literature is beautiful," Modi said.
