Mann ki Baat: Padma award selection process transformed, says Modi

Mann ki Baat: Padma award selection process transformed, says Modi”

Addressing the nation in his monthly radio address Mann Ki Baat, the Prime Minister said, "Transparency has been brought about in Padma awards". Today there are many sectors where our Nari Shakti (women power) is playing a pioneering role, establishing milestones. "Her life demonstrates Nari Shakti", he said.

PM in his address said, though Kalpana is no more, she has set an example in front of the females of our nation.

This will be the first-ever visit by an Indian Prime Minister to Palestine, and Modi's second visit to UAE and first to Oman.

He also lauded the daredevil stunts performed by the BSF biker contingent comprising women participants on Republic Day parade. In our country, there have been unending endeavours against social ills and evil practices, both individually & collectively.

Mr Modi said the sole aim behind this step is ensuring availability of quality and affordable health service to the poorest of the poor, so that a healthy and prosperous India comes into being.

Mangesh from Maharashtra shared a touching photograph on the NM Mobile App, of an elderly person and a young child taking part in the movement to clean the Morna river.

Getting rid of this "termite" of corruption would help the poor the most, PM Modi told the cadets.

He says he is happy that non-resident Indians are not only serving the countries they are in but also contributing immensely to India. "Through NCC, we nurture teams that work in mission mode and inspire others", the prime minister said.

He said people used to believe that the rich and powerful are never touched in anti-corruption measures and asserted that it is no longer so as three former chief ministers are now "rotting" in jail.

Also talking about women achievers, recently felicitated by President Ram Nath Kovind, Modi said, "A few days ago, the Honourable President of India met women achievers, who distinguished themselves in various fields". "His ideas are extremely relevant today".
