PM Modi’s “Mann Ki Baat

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Prime Minister Narendra Modi today, November 25 addressed the 50th episode of radio programme “Mann Ki Baat.” The programme was about the aspirations of the people and neither about his achievements nor his government said PM Modi.

He said the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ was started on October 3, 2014, and today is the Golden Jubilee episode. PM Modi also narrated the story of how the idea for the programme came to him during a trip to Himachal Pradesh.

PM said,”When Mann ki Baat began, I decided that politics will not be a part of it. It’ll neither have the praises of the government nor my name.

Here are few highlights from “Mann ki Baat”:

  • Modi said, When Mann ki Baat started, I dedicated that politics will be a part of it, it’ll neither have the praises of the government, nor my name.
  • I thank media for playing Mann ki Baat on different channels and different mediums regularly. No political person is ever happy with media, they think they don’t get enough coverage or get negative comments.
  • PM said, the government has made very important decision of opening Kartarpura corridor so that people of India can easily go Kartarpura and visit the holy place of Guru Nanak Dev.
  • Today, youth is very ambitious, they think big. Prime Minister says, it’s good, dream big and achieves great success – this is New India. People say the young generation wants to do so many things at the same time. I say what is wrong in that? They are good at multitasking, so they do that.”
  • Cleanliness, road safety, drug free India and selfie with daughter are some of the initiatives that the media campaigned for in a creative manner, PM Modi adds. “TV channels have made it the most watched radio programme.”

The first episode of Mann ki Baat radio programme was broadcasted on October 2014.

The major motive of the first episode of Modi’s Mann ki Baat was his insistence on the usage of Khadi products, which subsequently boosted the sale of such products by over 100%.

The last episode of Mann ki Baat aired on 24th October, outlined for IT society initiative for promoting selfless service, acknowledged the contribution of Sardar Patel for uniting India, and paid homage to army soldiers and their families on the occasion of Infantry Day.
As the last episode was broadcasted days before Diwali, PM Modi also urged people to buy indigenous product to support the people of the country. He also urged farmer to give up the practice of stubble burning in order to control air pollution.

On January 2015, former US President Barack Obama had also joined Modi and addressed episode of Mann Ki Baat. The former United State’s president had shared personal stories and gave insights over what it takes to achieve life goals.

BJP issues show-cause notice to MP Jayant Sinha for not voting in Lok Sabha Elections

BJP on Monday issued a show cause notice to former Union Minister Jayant Sinha for not participating in the Lok Sabha elections after Manish Jaiswal was declared candidate from the Hazaribagh Lok Sabha seat and thereby maligning the party’s image. Jayant Sinha is the son of former union finance minister Yashwant Sinha and is the sitting MP of Hazaribag. Sinha did not participate in elections in Hazaribag Lok Sabha seat.

Sinha has been accused of not paying attention to his organizational duties and did not participate in the election campaigning since Jaiswal’s candidacy was announced. His absence during elections in Hazaribag Lok Sabha seat on Monday has further intensified the situation in BJP. The notice issued on Monday requires Sinha to provide an explanation within 2 days, as per instructions from state BJP president and former Jharkhand chief minister Babulal Marandi. Sahu said further actions will depend on Sinha’s response.

Attempts were made to reach him for his comments but Sinha remained unavailable and did not respond to calls and messages. Earlier Sinha took to X and expressed his desire to shift his focus towards combating global climatic change and highlighting his attention to continue working with economic and governance issues.

In the past Hazaribag has been represented by both Yashwant Sinha and his son Jayant Sinha and holds substantial political weight in Jharkhand. In the 2019 general elections Jayant Sinha was victorious by a margin of 4.79 lakh votes and defeated Congress’s Gopal Sahu. Jaiswal whose nomination sparked controversy had earlier contested elections from the Mandu assembly seat on a JVM ticket.

 Earlier Jayant Sinha has served on India’s council of ministers from 2014 and 2019, and also as the minister of state for finance and minister of state of civil aviation. The BJP MP is also known for helping launch the UDAN regional connectivity scheme that increased the number of operational airports in India by 50% in 3 years.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh on Monday accused BJP of planning an attack on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Singh was addressing a press conference in New Delhi where he said the BJP has been in a state of panic ever since Arvind Kejriwal came out of jail.

He said BJP is now plotting to launch a deadly attack on Arvind Kejriwal. This conspiracy is being conducted directly from the Prime Minister’s Office. A threat of attack on Kejriwal ji has been written at Rajiv Chowk and Patel Nagar Metro stations.

The AAP leader accused PM Modi and the BJP of being immersed in hatred so much that they are conspiring to kill the Delhi Chief Minister. He added that the Prime Minister Office, BJP and PM Modi will be responsible if anything happens to Kejriwal. He pointed out that Kejriwal had not been given insulin for 23 days when he was in judicial custody in Tihar jail.

Singh said a 3 time elected chief minister is being openly threatened with attacks and murder, and nobody is saying anything. He said AAP leaders are writing letters to the Election Commission and if Kejiriwal gets a scratch, the PMO, BJP and PM Modi will be held responsible.

The Supreme Court has given interim bail to the Aam Aadmi Party supremo till June 1 ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in New Delhi. But according to the terms of his bail, the Delhi chief minister cannot make any comments about his role in the Delhi liquor scam case.
