PM Narendra Modi Mann Ki Baat Today Live Updates: In the 74th edition of his monthly radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’ Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi encouraged people to use indigenous products to promote India’s policy of self reliance. “When people feel proud of indigenous products then Aatmanirbhar Bharat does not just remain economic programme but becomes national spirit,” PM Modi said.

The Prime Minister also touched on a number of other issues, including water conservation, the nation’s battle against coronavirus, employment generation and the upcoming examinations.

With the summer season quickly approaching, PM Modi said it was essential for all Indians to recognise their responsibility towards water conservation. He also announced the Jal Shakti Ministry’s upcoming ‘Catch the Rain’ campaign aimed at rain water harvesting.

On the occasion of National Science Day, PM Modi also highlighted the importance of science in building a self reliant India. He dedicated the day to the work of esteemed scientist Dr CV Raman and his discovery of the ‘Raman Effect’. “Our youth should read a lot about Indian scientists and understand the history of Indian science,” he said.

Responding to a listener’s question about his biggest regrets as Chief Minister of Gujarat and later as Prime Minister, PM Modi said that he often feels bad that he could not learn Tamil, the “world’s most ancient language”. “It is a beautiful language that is prominent around the world. Many people have told me about the quality of literature and poetry written in Tamil,” he said.
