Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, in the 26th edition of his Mann ki Baat address, spoke on demonetisation and digital banking, asking the youth to move towards a cashless society. He acknowledged the support extended by the people towards his demonetisation move. PM Modi said that the corrupt people were still trying to hoard black money and in the process were exploiting the poor. He also spoke on the burning issues of Kashmir unrest and hailed the valour of the Indian Army.

Here are the top quotes from his address:

* I received overwhelming requests from across the nation to explain my decision behind scrapping Rs 500, 1000 notes. The moment I had announced demonetisation, I had warned that this was not an easy step and people will face inconvenience.

* The corrupt are incorrigible and are still looking for unfair means to stock black money. But what is saddening is that they are doing so by exploiting the poor.

* The hard work of our bank employees and others who are working to help the people post demonetisation is amazing.

* Despite demonetisation, the sowing of crops have soared and I want to thank our hardworking farmers for this. This major decision of demonetisation, is especially for the betterment of the poor, farmers, and the labourers.

* Talking to the youths of the country, I say that you are my true soldiers. You have access to technology more than the older generation. Let’s move towards less cash society. I appeal to them to carry forward this scheme with zeal and spread the message of embracing digital banking.

* Technology is becoming very easy to access, you don’t need a smartphone. There are various apps that will help us to move towards cashless society.

* Common man will be trouble free if they are made aware of the digital financial transaction options, the youth can do this quickly.

* The poor have started using Rupay Card, which was not used that frequently after November 8 decision and since then, nearly 300% development has happened.

* Amitabh Bachchan is an ambassador of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. He sent me a poem of his father, a line of which goes- “Swachh tan, swachh mann, Swachh Bharat, mera parichay”.

                      If we are to go towards a cash-less system, then why 26 crores bank accounts were opened with ZERO balance ? The administrative cost of opening such account is roughly ₹250 per account. Who paid that amount to whom?

                        The demonetization act was good to fool the counterfeiters (5% cash) of Indian currency for some time. But not by financially raping the common man. Rest all are just ‘fiction’ scripted by तीन मूर्ति : M/s Na.Mythomaniac, Am.Hippopotemus and Ar.Jhutley.

                          They say, 'poison kills poison'. That is why Mr. Narcissist Mythomaniac introduced ₹2000 note to "fight against corruption".

                            Lack of preparation indicates impromptu experiment. Intention was not to curb black money, but another jumla.

                                Ignore him, just an Aaptard, showing his frustration after loosing all the black money. Listen madarch0d, don't dare to speak about common man. You don't represent anybody except yourself.

                                    The news of the withdrawal of notes caught most people by surprise, leading many to hail the government's success in keeping it a closely guarded secret, it is now emerging the information—or at least a rumour of what was to come—had already reached several ears. Firstly, in April this year, SBI had said that people were withdrawing cash in large amounts in smaller denominations due to rumours of demonetization of ₹1000 and ₹500 notes. Secondly, in the past few weeks, local dailies in Gujarat and elsewhere had also reported that such a move might be in the offing. Thirdly, the BJP's West Bengal unit deposited an unusually large cash amount of Rs 1 crore just before the move's announcement. All these factors indicate that information of the action may well have leaked.

                                        Visited a village on my way to Mathura from Delhi. The goodwill that PM has generated will finish other parties. It's for sure that Modi is here to stay for 3 terms or even more. Nobody can oust him from power. Even those poor women who used to vote for BSP see Modi as the messiah. I myself was astonished to see this support. This time,tsunami will be bigger than 2014.

                                          If we individual people are not changing, then what one man will do. We are lucky that we have a PM in that position who is ready to do all the good things required for the nation. But unfortunate that Still we are dying for illegal money. Because attraction of money is so powerful that common man find it difficult to get rid of it. High Value morality is fully disappeared from the human character. These hypocrite people want to keep sufficient money for themselves first then will come to civic sense. That is the root problem for everything.
