1975 Emergency was a Black Day Says PM Modi on Mann Ki Baat

During the 30-minute ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme, PM Narendra Modi talked about Emergency which was imposed on this day in 1975 by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and asserted that democracy is the country’s strength and it will have to be strengthened. The Prime Minister also referred to the International Yoga Day celebrated on June 21 and said a momentum of yoga should be maintained for at least a year as it may help cure diabetes. Modi also mentioned the recent induction of three women as fighter pilots in the Indian Air Force. While naming the three, he hailed them as an example of empowerment of women, particularly since they come from small cities and towns. He welcomed the prediction of good rains in the country during Monsoon, saying it will give relief to the countrymen, particularly farmers, who had been facing drought and water-scarcity. Noting that his government recently completed two years, Modi said some “modern-thinking youth” had given him a “kind of challenge” to get his government’s performance assessed by the people. Referring to the feat achieved by the ISRO in launching 22 satellites in one go a few days back, Modi had words of praise for students of Pune and Tamil Nadu who had prepared two of these satellites. He said more and more children should be encouraged to become scientists so that the country can have innovations, especially in the area of space.
