PM Modi addresses Mann ki Baat 5 top points

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed 35th episode of his popular radio show Mann ki Baat. His address started with the contentious issue of violence in the name of religion. It was reported that the recording of the show was interrupted on Friday after the riots broke out over conviction of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh. It was thus natural that he started off his address by condemning the violence for political or religious motives. PM Modi, in his monthly address, everybody will have to bow before the law.

He said the Constitution provides scope for redressal of all kinds of grievances. “At a time, when the country is in the mode of celebrating festivals, news of violence from any part is naturally a matter of concern,” the prime minister said, clearly referring to the mayhem created by the followers of Ram Rahim, chief of Dera Sacha Sauda, in Haryana. “This is a country of Lord Buddha and Mahatma Gandhi. This is a country of Sardar Patel, who devoted his life for the unity,” he said.

Narendra Modi also highlighted the achievements of his pet project Jan Dhan Yojna. At least 30 crore new families have got Jan Dhan accounts in which almost Rs 65,000 crore have been deposited, Modi said. He said banks have conducted surveys about how the common man has benefitted from Jan Dhan Yojna as also from insurance schemes like Pradhan Mantri Jeewan Jyoti Bima Yojna and Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojna, from RuPay Card and Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojna and these surveys have thrown up “inspiring stories”. Modi said the schemes like Pradhan Mantri Jeewan Jyoti Bima Yojna and Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojna, with a small premium of one rupee or thirty rupees, are giving a new sense of confidence to the poor.

And those who opened their accounts under the Pradhan Mantri Jan DhanYojna, have received the benefit of insurance as well,” he said.
