Nadda, while addressing the party workers in Gurugram in Haryana said, “This was the 89th time… at all times, PM Modi never discussed politics.”
The BJP chief informed that party workers at around 10.40 lakh booths in more than 5.5 lakh locations tune in to PM Modi’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ at the same time.
“In today’s edition, Prime Minister talked about the environment, then talked about cleanliness. He also discussed how the people of India are making efforts to strengthen the country. Along with this, Modi ji also discussed efforts to provide drinking water in the village,” he stated.
The Prime Minister took note of the garbage dumps in the Kedarnath Temple areas during ‘Mann Ki Baat’ where he urged people to ensure that the surroundings are kept clean.
“The holy pilgrimage of Char Dham in Uttarakhand is currently underway. Thousands of devotees are taking part in Char Dham Yatra and especially going to the Kedarnath Temple. But, I have also seen that some devotees were disappointed after they came across filth on route to Kedarnath. Going on a holy pilgrimage and coming across a heap of filth is not right,” said PM Modi.
“Wherever we go, let us maintain the dignity of these pilgrimage sites. Purity, cleanliness and a pious environment… we should never forget these and for that, it is imperative that we abide by the resolution of cleanliness. A few days later, the world will celebrate the 5th of June as ‘Environment Day’. We should run positive environment campaigns around us and this is a never-ending task. This time, you should join everyone together – you should certainly make some effort for cleanliness and tree plantation. Plant a tree yourself and inspire others too,” PM Modi added .
‘Mann ki Baat’ is a radio programme, broadcast by All India Radio on the last Sunday of every month. The first episode of Mann Ki Baat was broadcast on October 3, 2014.
