PM urges people to highlight achievements of daughters

Tweeted by @PMOIndia
In ‘Mann Ki Baat’ address on All India Radio, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged people to highlight the achievements of their daughters by using hashtag #BHARAT KI LAXMI on social media on the lines of “Selfie with daughter”, which spread globally. He said daughters are regarded as Laxmi in Indian culture and asked people to organize programmes to felicitate daughters in villages, towns and cities this Diwali.

Mr Modi said, festival season has begun with the advent of Navaratri today. He asked people to be generous this season and give away excess items which they no longer require.


The Prime Minister again asked people to visit 15 tourist places in the country to observe, understand and experience India and its diversity. He expressed happiness that India's ranking in Travel and Tourism Competitive Index has jumped to 34 from 65 in the last five years.  


Mr Modi called upon students, teachers and parents to come up with their experiences and suggestions on aspects of stress free exams. He said he will try to incorporate these suggestions in a new edition of Exam Warriors.

In his address, Mr Modi shared his conversation with legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar, saying she is earnestly concerned and eager about the progress being made by India.

The Prime Minister said, India has not only been the birthplace of extraordinary people, but also the land of their karma. He said it is a matter of pride that on 13th of next month, Pope Francis will declare Sister Mariam Thresia a saint.
