“The study revealed the fact that out of those sending messages and suggestions, close to 75% are below the age of 35 — it means the suggestions of India’s youth power are steering ‘Mann ki Baat’,” he said. Noting that the study mainly focused on people who send messages and suggestions, Modi said, “I view this as a very good indicator. ‘Mann Ki Baat’ is a medium which has positivity, sensitivity. In ‘Mann Ki Baat’, we talk about positive things. Its character is collective.”
Appealing to listeners to keep on sending their ideas and suggestions, he said, “Suggestions received from you are the real strength of ‘Mann Ki Baat’. We’re not able to discus all of them, but I do send many of them to related departments so that further work can be done on them.”
The PM shared some of the innovations and works of individuals in different states. He also appealed to people to focus on conserving rain water. “Saving every drop of water and preventing any kind of wastage of water should become a natural part of our lifestyle. Such habits should be followed in our families,” he said.
