People of J&K eager to join mainstream: PM Modi

AIR
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said, the people of Jammu and Kashmir want good governance and those who spread hatred and pose hurdles will never succeed in their sinister plans. 

Sharing his thoughts in the Mann Ki Baat Programme on All India Radio, Mr Modi said, the people of Kashmir are eager to join the national mainstream, and their enthusiasm is reflected in the community mobilisation programme known as 'Back to Village’ in the state. 

Citing the success of the programme, the Prime Minister said, large scale participation of people in this programme proves that the power of development is stronger than the might of bullets and bombs. 

The Prime Minister described the year 2019 as very fruitful for India in the realm of Space. He said the nation watched with pride as Chandrayaan II made strides into Space from Sriharikota. He added that visuals of Chandrayaan II lifting off filled people's hearts with glory, zest and joy. 

Highlighting that Science is the path of progress, Mr Modi invited young boys and girls to participate in a Quiz Competition. 

Space, India’s Space Mission, Science and Technology will be the salient features of this competition. The details will be available on the MyGov website. Mr Modi said that students scoring the highest marks in their states will be invited to visit Sriharikota, with expenses borne by the Government.  

Talking about the flood situation in many parts of the country, Mr Modi assured the affected people that the Centre in tandem with the State governments is working at a lightning fast pace to provide relief and succour to the affected. 

The Prime Minister said his call to conserve water in the previous Mann Ki Baat episode has evoked an immense response. He said people have shared information on traditional methods and the media has embarked upon quite a few innovative campaigns. He also hailed Haryana where crops that require meagre water are being encouraged. 

The Prime Minister said the Cleanliness campaign which began five years ago gathered momentum with mass participation and is now setting up newer benchmarks in cleanliness and sanitation. He said this movement has now advanced from cleanliness towards beautification. 

Referring to his appeal to people in his last Mann Ki Baat programme to read books, Mr Modi said it has generated an immense response. He pitched the idea of creating a permanent book corner on the Narendra Modi App so that people can discuss the books they read. 

The Prime Minister congratulated all the ten champions of India who won medals in the World Children’s Winners Games held in Moscow. 

Mr Modi said, the month of August also brings the memories of Quit India movement. He urged the people to celebrate 15th August with special preparations and find out new ways to observe this festival of freedom with greater participation of the masses.
