Mann Ki Baat Highlights: There may be many challenges before us, but we always overcome them: PM Modi


Speaking at the 66th edition of his monthly radio program “Mann Ki Baat”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday that there could be a number of challenges but the history of our country shows that it has always overcome them. 


“There could be a number of challenges, but our history shows that we have always overcome them. We emerged stronger after the challenges”, PM said.

“The coronavirus pandemic has been the most discussed this year. Some say this year is not good and some say it is unlucky. I think about why this is happening”, he said.

“About 6-7 months Back, we didn’t know that a coronavirus-like crisis was going to hit us. There have been challenges this year like Cyclone Amphan, locust swarm attacks and which is being done by neighboring countries, “said the Prime Minister. 

“The problems and challenges are coming, but should we consider 2020 as bad. I don’t think so. No matter how many challenges arise in a year, the year does not go bad,” he said.

"There is a new and strong opportunity for our generation and our start-ups. We should present India's traditional games in a new and interesting form," Modi added.

PM also urged to follow social distancing rules and water masks at all times.

 "As compared to Lockdown, we need to be even more careful now during Unlock. If you don't wear masks, follow social distancing and other precautions, you put yourself as well as others at risk. I appeal to all countrymen to not be careless," he said.

"You would be seeing many inspiring stories of migrant labourers. In UP's Barabanki, labourers who returned from outside started working to restore natural form of Kalyani river.While staying in isolation, the way migrant labourers have changed things around them is commendable", he said.

Speaking about the India-China border clash, PM Modi said:

"The world has seen India's commitment to protecting its borders and sovereignty. In Ladakh, a befitting reply has been given to those coveting our territories."

"Bharat mitrata nibhana jaanta hai, toh, aankh mein aankh dalkar dekhna aur uchit jawab dena bhi janta hai. Hamare veer sainikon ne dikha dia ke vo Maa Bharti ke gaurav par aanch nahi aane denge”, he added.
