PM Narendra Modi Mann Ki Baat Today HIGHLIGHTS: In the last episode of his ‘Mann ki Baat’ address of 2020, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday said the nation developed ‘Aatmanirbharta’ during the coronavirus crisis.

PM Modi said that a major transformation has occurred in people’s attitudes in a period of one year and customers too are demanding ‘Made In India’ products.

The Prime Minister said people have shown their support for ‘Vocal for Local’ and urged manufacturers and industry leaders to make world-class products.

PM Modi also paid tributes to several revered Sikh personalities, including sons of Guru Gobind Singh, saying their sacrifices helped keep our culture safe.

The Prime Minister had earlier on Friday asked people to share their inputs and ideas for his monthly radio programme.

The prime minister’s address comes amid the farmers protests in and around Delhi against the Centre’s farm laws. To mark their protest, farm leaders have urged people to beat utensils during PM’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ radio programme, the same way the prime minister had asked people in March to beat ‘thalis’ (steel plates). When the prime minister will speak, “we appeal to the people of the entire country to bang utensils in your houses throughout the duration of his programme to drown out his Mann Ki Baat”, Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) leader Jagjeet Singh Dalewala said.

The programme was broadcast live on All India Radio, DD and Narendra Modi Mobile App. Akashvani will broadcast the show in regional languages after the Hindi broadcast. The programme can also be heard on mobile by giving a missed call on 1922.

For years, the demands of farmers, demands which were promised at some or the other time by every political party, those demands have been fulfilled.
