Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed the nation on his Mann Ki Baat radio show. The 29th edition of the prime minister’s monthly radio programme came amid the Assembly polls.
As two of Uttar Pradesh’s seven phases of polling and Manipur’s both phases of voting are yet to be carried out, the model code of conduct is still partially in place.
Narendra Modi hailed Indian science community for country’s record satellite launch and successful testing of a missile system as he made another pitch for digital payments.
“This cost effective, efficient space programme of Isro has become a marvel for the entire world,” the Prime Minister said during the 29th edition of Mann ki Baat.
“It is also a matter of exultation for us that this entire campaign was led and steered by our young scientists, our women scientists. This tremendous participation of youth and women is a major glorious dimension in ISRO’s success,” he added.
Prime Minister further added that digital payments were getting popular in the country and people were gradually switching over to cash-less transactions.
Modi talked about the success of Lucky Graahak Yojana and Digi-Dhan Vyapari Yojana, the programs aimed at cashless transactions.
Modi urged the youth and lottery winners to become ambassadors of the two schemes and encourage people to go cashless that would go a long way in the fight against corruption and black money.
“To me, each and every individual involved in this mission constitute a new anti-corruption cadre in the country. In a way you are a soldier in the cause of cleanliness and purity.”
He also asked each of the winners to teach at least 125 people the use of BHIM App in the memory of Dalit icon BR Ambedkar.
