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”.
