Mann Ki Baat: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while addressing his 31st radio address to the country Mann Ki Baat, gave a clarion call for ensuring power to the people and called it his ‘EPI’ (Every person is important) mantra in the new India. During his address to the people, he said that his government’s concept of new India is that rather than VIP, more priority should be given to the concept of empowering the public. “Our concept of New India precisely is that in place of VIP, more priority should be accorded to EPI”, he said.
PM’s comments came days after his government banned the use of beacons from most cars in its efforts to abolish VIP culture from the country that has received unstinted support from all sections of society. “In our country, there exists an atmosphere of disdain towards VIP culture. And it runs very deep”, he said.
The prime minister said it is with this intention that the Centre recently decided that no person will move with a beacon atop his vehicle irrespective of status.
During his nearly half an hour long address, the prime minister also urged students to be curious. He asked them not be scared and try new things. Advising students of the need to chase their dreams, prime minister said youngsters should work hard to fulfill whatever they want to do in life. “If you don’t know how to swim, learn swimming, Try doing some painting, even if you do not end up making the best”, he added. PM underlined the urgency for all to break out from their ‘comfort zones’.
PM Modi also expressed his concern for the rising heat wave in the country and said “it is a concerning sign”. “Climate Change no more just a topic in the academic world but a reality we all experience every day,” he added.
