  • PM Narendra Modi addresses last Mann Ki Baat of 2017

"The New India Youth will transform our nation". It was also celebrated in India.

While reacting to other remarks of PM during Mann Ki Baat Vibodh said that presently when PM is talking about new India, the youth of J&K have a great role in realising this dream of PM. "We welcome those born in the 21st Century to the democratic system as they will become eligible voters".

He gave an example of Anjum Bashir Khan Khattak, who excelled in the Karnataka Administrative Service (KAS) exam. Khattak's ancestral home, Modi said, was burnt by terrorists in the 1990s but he never lost hope.

In October, it was announced that Indian women over the age of 45 and travelling in groups of four will be able to go for the annual Haj pilgrimage without a male guardian next year, if the government adopts proposed reforms. The mock parliament will comprise one young representative selected from every district of India who would participate and deliberate on how a new India could be formed in the next five years. "The final Mann Ki Baat of 2017 on the final day of the year...looking forward to your inputs for the programme on 31st".

"New India will be free from poison of casteism, communalism, terrorism and corruption; free from dirt & poverty", he added. "Usually there is a lottery system for selection of Haj pilgrims but I would like that single women pilgrims should be excluded from this lottery system and they should be given a chance as a special category", the PM said in his Mann Ki Baat address. "I was amazed at the spirit that they had, the enthusiasm that was there in their hearts and dreams they nurtured", he said. He chose a different path for himself - a path of serving the people.

He also focussed on the Swachh Bharat mission and said that cleanliness surveys will be conducted from January 4 to 10, 2018 to evaluate achievements in cleanliness level in our urban areas. This is unprecedented in India's history...
