    1. Narendra Modi on 'Mann Ki Baat': We observed 2 minutes silence on January 30 as a mark of respect towards our brave martyrs. If the entire nation observes silence every year on 30th January at 11 am, you can imagine the energy that a single moment will generate. (PTI)

    2. Narendra Modi on 'Mann Ki Baat': Sardar Patel said India's independence is in 'Khadi'. Khadi has now become a symbol, a distinct identity in itself. Khadi has become a centre of attraction for the youth too. Khadi has the power to provide employment to crores of people Some initiatives have been taken to give boost to Khadi production. I was told that to fulfill this demand of Khadi from government departments, additional jobs of 18 lakh man days will be generated. (PTI)

    3. Narendra Modi on 'Mann Ki Baat': In our country, a lot is said in the name of farmers. I don't want to get involved in that debate. But farmers face a major crisis. In natural calamity, their entire effort goes waste. His one year goes waste. To give him security, only one thing comes to mind and that is crop insurance. In (the New Year) 2016, the central government has given a big gift to the farmers -- Pradhan Mantri Crop Insurance Scheme. (AP)

    4. Narendra Modi on 'Mann Ki Baat': For so many years, there has been a talk regarding crop insurance but "not more than 20-25 per cent" of the country's farmers had been been able to benefit from such schemes. Can we take a pledge that we should connect at least 50 per cent of the farmers to this scheme in two years? I need this help from you. Because if a farmer joins the scheme, he will get huge help during a natural calamity. The scheme has got "wide acceptability because it has been made quite extensive and easy and involves use of technology. Not only this. If something happens to the crop within 15 days after harvest, even then help is assured. Usage of technology will ensure speedy assessment and disbursement of compensation. (PTI)

    5. Narendra Modi on 'Mann Ki Baat':'Start-Up India' scheme was rolled out on January 16 and has infused new energy among the youth. There was a wrong notion earlier that the initiative is limited to the sophisticated area of Information Technology and now it has become clear that there are enormous opportunities under this programme in all kinds of sectors and areas, including farming. I invite more examples of StartUp initiatives like farming sector in Sikkim which was recently declared an Organic State. (PTI)

    8. Narendra Modi on 'Mann Ki Baat': In my last Mann Ki Baat , I had raised two issues. First, as a citizen, why should we not clean up the statues of great people? Second, thing which I talked about was how to bring duties at the centre of discussion. I can think of only one way of providing security to distressed farmers and that is crop insurance scheme. Let us integrate as many farmers as possible with the crop insurance scheme. (PTI)

    After the elections BJP is just fooling the common & ried persons, there is no actual benefit to the middle cl & lower cl of people. ried cl are the most troubled cl they are direct targets of the Govt. Govt. try to squeez the maximum from the ried cl. Whatever new deduction is introducted it is under 80C & its just a eye wash. Every time after the budget new cess or additional tax is introducted; we all need standard deduction which was earlier. The cost of living is increasing day by day. BJP during elections has even promised to give tax exemption upto 5 lacs. Business incomes are the most exempt & they enjoy by paying low taxes. Please help the common ried cl.
