Mann ki Baat: Indian PM expresses solidarity with people of flood-ravaged Kerala


New Delhi, Aug. 26: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday expressed solidarity with people of flood-ravaged Kerala. In the latest edition of his radio programme “Maan Ki Baat” the PM assured the people of the State that the entire country was with them in the difficult time.   

“Calamities leave behind destruction but they also become examples of humanity. People from all parts of country are pitching in to help to ensure that some of problems of people of Kerala can be alleviated,” he said. 

Prime Minister Modi praised role of the Indian Armed Forces and paramilitary forces in rescue operations, and also made a special mention of the NDRF.

Tributes to Vajpayee

Modi also remembered former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vaypayee who had passed away on August 16 after a prolonged illness, making a mention of reforms and changes during the tenure. For someone who had been away from public life for 10 years, on August 16 we saw that these 10 years had made no difference in his popularity. 

 Remembering that it was during the tenure of Vajpayee that the time of presentation of the Union Budget was changed from evening to morning, he said it was time to bring another reform in India in the form of one nation one election.

He thanked all parties for the most productive Parliament session, mentioning the important legislative business passed during the just concluded monsoon session.

 Prime Minister also praised the performance of the Indian team in the Asian Games and wished people of the country on the occasion of Rakhabandhan.    

Making a special mention of the Sanskrit Divas on Sunday, he spoke of the great potential of the language. It is said that Vedas also mention ways to tackle Global warming, he added. 


He also spoke of contribution of teachers in shaping the lives of children and praised former president Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan in whose memory the day is celebrated, wishing all teachers on the day. The Tribune
