Country will never let go of its unity, permanence: PM Modi

AIR
Prime Minister Narendra Modi says he has upheld India's unity and culture above politics. In his 50th Maan Ki Baat programme broadcast today, the Prime Minister said, Modi may come and go but this country will never let go of its unity and permanence and India's culture will remain immortal. 

Justifying his decision to keep this programme apolitical, Mr. Modi said that it was the people of the country who stood as a bulwark in ensuring adherence to his resolve. 

Mr Modi said, most of the people believe that the greatest contribution of Mann Ki Baat has been the enhancement of feeling of positivity in society as revealed in a survey conducted by All India Radio. 

The Prime Minister lauded the role of All India Radio as a mighty means of getting across to people. He said in an era of social media he preferred Radio saying that he realised its potential, after a Radio listener in a remote village in Himachal Pradesh broke the news of India conducting nuclear test in 1998. Mr. Modi said, in terms of reach and depth of communication, Radio has been incomparable. 

Mr Modi highlighted that the biggest achievement of the 50 episodes of Mann Ki Baat is that one feels like talking to a close acquaintance and not to the Prime Minister which reflects the true democracy. 

Saying next year the country will be celebrating 550th Prakash Parv of Guru Nanak Dev Ji who always envisaged the welfare of entire humanity, Mr Modi said it will be celebrated in a grand way.
