Mann Ki Baat : Chandigarh’s international airport is named ‘Shaheed Bhagat Singh Airport’; 10 important points from ‘Mann Ki Baat’

PM Modi Mann Ki Baat : Prime Minister Narendra Modi (PM Narendra Modi) today addressed the public through ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme. On this occasion, Modi discussed many issues. It has been decided to name Chandigarh Airport after Shaheed Bhagat Singh. At the same time many decisions were taken.

10 Important Points in PM’s Mann Ki Baat : 

1. My dear countrymen, three days from today i.e. on 28th September, a special day of Amrit Mahotsav is coming. On this day, we are going to celebrate the birth anniversary of Bhagat Singh, the brave son of Mother India. An important decision has been taken to pay homage to Bhagat Singh before his birth anniversary. It has now been decided to name the Chandigarh airport after Shaheed Bhagat Singh. This decision was awaited for a long time. I congratulate the people of Chandigarh, Punjab, Haryana and all the people of the country for this decision. The country has made a similar effort by erecting a statue of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose on the duty road and now naming the Chandigarh airport after Shaheed Bhagat Singh is another step taken in this direction. 

2. People from all corners of the country have expressed their happiness over the return of the cheetah to India. 130 crore Indians are happy, they are proud. This is India’s love of nature. Friends, an action force has been formed. The action team will monitor the cheetahs and see how easily they adapt to the environment. Accordingly a decision will be taken after a few months and after that you will be able to see the cheetahs. A contest will be held on the MyGov forum. As part of this contest, I urge people to share some things. What can the campaign for cheetahs be called? We will also think of naming the cheetahs by what name they can be called.

3. My dear countrymen, today is the birthday of the great humanitarian, thinker and great son of the country, Deendayal Upadhyayji. Deendayalji had experienced great events in the world in his life, this is the biggest feature of his thoughts. He witnessed many ideological conflicts.

4. My dear countrymen, there is currently a festive mood all over the country. Tomorrow is the first day of Navratri. On this day we will worship the first form of Goddess ‘Maan Shailputri’. From here onwards there will be nine days of abstinence and fasting and then Vijayadashami will also be celebrated. Accomplishment with discipline and patience followed by victory celebration is the way to achieve a goal in your life. After Dussehra, the festivals of Dhantrayodashi and Diwali will also come.

5. In celebration of Gandhi Jayanti on 2nd October, be sure to buy local goods along with all the products like khadi, handloom, handicrafts.  We should support people involved in local products. This campaign is more special this time as we are also trying to achieve the goal of self-reliant India during the nectar festival of independence.

6. Friends, for the past few years we have also taken a new resolution with festivals in our country. As you all know, this is the resolution – ‘Vocal for Local’. The use of such traditional bags made from jute, cotton, banana tree is once again on the rise here. It is our responsibility to encourage this on the occasion of the festival.

7. Many school curricula have also been introduced in sign language on the occasion of Sign Language Day. A lot of emphasis is also laid in the National Education Policy to maintain the status of sign language as per standards. I am very happy that Indian Sign Language Research and Training Center has so far created a dictionary of ten thousand words and gestures.

8. This is a part of Tuberculosis Free India campaign whose main basis is public participation and sense of duty. Treatment of tuberculosis is possible only with proper healthy diet and timely medicines. I believe that India will definitely become TB free by the year 2025 due to this strength of public participation. 

9. It is universally accepted that yoga is very beneficial for physical and mental health, especially yoga is very helpful in solving problems related to diabetes and blood pressure. Considering this power of yoga, the United Nations decided to celebrate June 21 as International Yoga Day. The United Nations has honored yet another effort by India; That effort is the ‘High Blood Pressure Control Initiative in India’. Under this initiative, patients suffering from blood pressure are treated in government service centers.

10. Signals a major change. Given the enthusiasm of people, I think we should create an e-book. In which people can write about whole grains and their experiences.
