Stressing on the ‘Nation First, Always First’ mantra, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday that as the country enters its 75th year of Independence, every citizen should lead a “Bharat Jodo Andolan” in the same manner as Mahatma Gandhi had led the “Bharat Chhoro Andolan”.
In his monthly Mann Ki Baat radio broadcast, he noted that as India enters its 75th year of Independence on August 15, Amrit Mahotsav is being celebrated throughout the country to mark the year. The need of the nation is to unite and work towards national progress, Modi said.
“It is our responsibility that we do our work in such a manner that it helps in uniting our country which is full of diversities,” the prime minister said, adding, “We have to move forward with Nation First, Always First.”
“With the help of this website, you can render the national anthem and record it, thereby getting connected with the campaign. I hope you connect yourselves with this novel initiative. In the days to come, you will get to see many such campaigns and efforts,” Modi said. The Prime Minister urged people to keep encouraging and supporting Indian athletes participating in the Tokyo Olympics. He called on the people to support the contingent on social media by joining the ‘Victory Punch Campaign’, which has already begun.
Noting that the National Handloom Day falls on August 7, he said handloom products are a major source of income in rural and tribal regions and urged people to purchase them.
With khadi products often finding mention in his monthly radio address, Modi said their demand has gone up manifold since 2014.
In his address, the Prime Minister also spoke of a number of individuals and local developments brought about by groups of people that have made positive contributions to society.
