PM Narendra Modi addressed the nation on Sunday through the radio program 'Mann Ki Baat'. PM Modi said – I am saying a lot of salutations to all of you because today after 100 crore vaccine doses, the country is moving ahead with new enthusiasm, new energy. The success of our vaccine program shows India's potential. Modi said that I knew that our healthcare workers would leave no stone unturned to vaccinate the countrymen. He set a new standard of service to humanity with his determination with innovation. He gave protection by overcoming all the challenges. We have many inspiring examples before us.
The PM said, "My dear countrymen, you know that next Sunday, October 31, is the birth anniversary of Sardar Patel. I bow to the Iron Man. On October 31, we celebrate Rashtriya Ekta Diwas. We are the ones who give the message of unity. Must be involved in some activity or the other. Jammu and Kashmir Police personnel are also giving a message of unity by taking out a bike rally from Uri to Pathankot.
Modi said, "Sardar sahib used to say that we can take the country to new great heights only with our united enterprise. If we do not have unity, then we will entangle ourselves in new calamities. That is, if there is national unity then there is height. There is development. Our freedom movement is the biggest example of this. You imagine, when a rangoli related to the freedom movement will be made, people will draw a picture of a freedom voter on their door, wall, any event of independence with colours. If you show it, then the colour of Amrit Mahotsav will increase even more.
Narendra Modi said that next month, on November 15. The birth anniversary of the great man, brave warrior, Lord Birsa Munda Ji is about to come. Lord Birsa Munda fought to protect his culture, his forest, his land. He taught us to be proud of our culture and roots.
He said that in 1947-48 when the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights was being prepared, it was being written in this declaration that all men are created equal. But a representative of India objected to this and then wrote a global manifesto – all human beings are created equal.
Modi said that earlier so many rules and restrictions were put in the drone sector that it was not even possible to use its true potential. Technology that should have been seen as an opportunity was seen as a crisis. He said that if you have to fly a drone for any work, then there was such a hassle of license and permission that people used to give up on the name of the drone itself. We decided to change this mindset and adopt the new trend. That's why on August 25 this year, the country came up with a new drone policy. The PM said that earlier there was a perception that services like the army and police are only for men, but today it is not so.
