He said that Mann Ki Baat is an unprecedented experimentation carried out by Prime Minister Narendra Modi that empowered the foundations of India’s democracy. It is very important event in which the leader appreciates the achievements of the people who are contributing to India’s national growth in their own way.
He said, “I am glad that Modi ji chose Akashvani to convey his message. Since my childhood I have been an admirer of Akashvani. I believe that it is the voice of the nation’s soul. I heard about India’s victory in Bangladesh on Akashvani and also the defeat of a tyrant Indira Gandhi after emergency in Akashvani. I was a regular listener of Jaymala a programmed that entertained the armed force jawans by playing songs in their request. People forgot this medium it but Modiji revived it and popularized it among the young generation.”
He also said that the foundation of a democracy becomes strong only through dialogue between the people and leader. Mann Ki Baat played that role and strengthened India’s foundation. Shah added that, “It is astonishing that a political leader conversed with people in 99 episodes but did not evoke a single political issue.”
The minister also said that the Prime Minister platformed the nation’s creative power, innovative power and the moral power in this programme. “The nation that cannot organize and appreciates these three forces cannot be a successful democracy. Modi ji executed this mantra in all the 99 episodes,” he said.
According to Amit Shah, Modiji unraveled many dimensions to India’s democracy in the last 9 years. But one of his biggest contribution is, he liberated India’s politics from the clutches of casteism, dynasticism and appeasement.
“As long as our thought is polluted by these three elements our opinions can never be free. He freed politics from them and made it performance based. One who performs and serves better can remain in politics. He gave a new live and energy to our democracy,” the Home Minister said.
Shah also said that as a perfect communicator, the prime minister showed how to speak with his conduct, thoughts and conversations without delivering any speech in Mann Ki Baat.
