Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday made a comeback with his programme Mann Ki Baat with three requests to a nation staring at severe water crisis.
“My 3 requests: Appeal to all Indians, including eminent people from all walks of life to create awareness on water conservation. Share knowledge of traditional methods of water conservation. If you know about any individuals or NGOs working on water, do share about them,” Modi said.
Modi was addressing the nation for the first time after resuming office for the second term.
Modi said that there is no fixed way to conserve water. In different parts, different methods may be adopted but the aim is same- to conserve every drop of water.
He said, “over the last few months, so many people have written about water related issues. I am happy to see greater awareness on water conservation.”
“I wrote a letter to Gram Pradhans on the importance of water conservation and how to take steps to create awareness on the subject across rural India,” Modi added.
Modi also requested the people to use #JanShakti4JalShakti hashtag to share their ideas and inspiration relating to water conservation.
“Use #JanShakti4JalShakti to upload your content relating to water conservation,” PMO tweeted.
On Saturday Modi in a tweet had said, “After four long months, #MannKiBaat is back to do what it has always loved- celebrate the power of positivity and the strengths of 130 crore Indians!”
