New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses the 61st edition of his monthly radio programme 'Mann Ki Baat'. The official handle of 'Mann Ki Baat Updates' had earlier said that the first address of PM Modi's monthly programme in 2020 will be done on the Republic Day. This timing of the programme has been changed for today from its usual 11 am to avoid a clash with the Republic Day function in the morning.

The programme will be broadcast on the entire network of AIR and Doordarshan and Narendra Modi App at 6 pm on January 26.

In his last address on December 29, the Prime Minister had urged people to take up tasks to uplift the poor and had stressed the need for buying indigenous products to support the artisans.

All students must be busy in final preparations for their exams. After interacting with crores of students in ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’, I’m sure that the youth of the country is confident: PM Modi

I congratulate the Government of Assam and the people of Assam for the great hosting of 'Khelo India'. The third 'Khelo India Games' has concluded in Guwahati on 22 January, in which about 6 thousand players from different states participated: PM Modi

"If I now take the name of David Beckham, you will think whether I’m referring to the legendary International Footballer. But now we also have a David Beckham amidst us and he has won a gold medal at the Youth Games in Guwahati. That too in the 200-meter Sprint event in Cycling!"

Somewhat similar is the story of Yogananthan of Tamil Nadu which fills you with great pride! Yogananthan makes beedis in Tamil Nadu, but his daughter Purnashree won everyone's heart by bagging the Gold Medal in Weight Lifting.

I along with all the winners, congratulate all the participants. I also thank all the people, coaches and technical officers associated with 'Khelo India Games’ for organising them successfully.

We must have made many resolutions in recent years, such as ‘no to single-use plastic’, ‘buy khadi’, cleanliness, spreading awareness about upholding the pride and honour of a girl child: PM Modi.

"Enthusiasm of people of India to do something has not changed with time. The feeling of 'Can do' is emerging as a resolution": PM Modi.

'Mann Ki Baat' - has become a good and smooth platform of sharing, learning and growing together. Every month thousands of people share their suggestions, their efforts, their experiences: PM Modi

Days and years may change but the enthusiasm of people of India doesn’t change. A new spirit of ‘can do’, a new resolve is emerging among Indians with each passing day: PM addresses the nation on the 61st episode of 'Mann ki Baat'.

Well, Shailesh ji, heartiest congratulations and many good wishes to you. The Mann Ki Baat Charter in connection with your New Year resolution is very innovative. I shall certainly send it back to you, along with my best wishes inscribed.

I have received a lovely letter, written by Shriman Shailesh from Bihar. In fact, he no longer stays in Bihar. He says, he stays in Delhi, working for an NGO: PM Modi.

With citizen’s participation through ideas and suggestions, Mann Ki Baat has become an ideal platform for sharing, learning and growing together: PM Modi.
