New Delhi, June 30 : With different parts of the country facing water crisis, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged the people to conserve every drop of water and to make it a mass movement akin to the Swachh Bharat mission.
“There is no one way to conserve water. In different parts, different methods are adopted but the aim is to conserve every drop of water,” Modi said in his monthly radio bulletin Mann ki Baat.
He sought ideas from the people about water conservation.
“There cannot be one formula across the country to save water. Share knowledge of traditional methods of water conservation. Use #JanShakti4JalShakti to upload your content relating to water conservation.”
He appealed to everyone, including eminent people, to create awareness on water conservation.
“If you know about individuals or NGOs working on water, do share details about them.”
Modi had to suspend his monthly broadcast for March and April due to the Lok Sabha elections as the code of conduct was in place.
The radio programme resumes broadcast after a gap of four months.This will be the first broadcast of ‘Mann ki Baat’ after BJP came to power for the second term.
Taking to Twitter, PM Narendra Modi announced on Saturday that his programme ‘Mann ki Baat’ will be broadcast live on Sunday at 11 am.
He wrote, “After four long months, #MannKiBaat is back to do what it has always loved- celebrate the power of positivity and the strengths of 130 crore Indians!” The PM added, “Do tune in at 11 AM tomorrow morning!”
Earlier on June 15, PM Modi had tweeted the revival of his monthly radio programme and had invited suggestions and questions for his address. In his tweet he had written, “30th June, Sunday at 11:00 AM… We will meet once again, thanks to the radio, share joy, positivity and celebrate the collective strength of 130 crore Indians. I am sure you have lots to say for #MannKiBaat. Share it on the NaMo App Open Forum.”
