Kartarpur corridor will make it easy visit to shrine

first_imgPrime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that Mann Ki Baat carries his voice but represents the emotions and spirit of the countrymen and aims to address the aspirational India. He also said that the government has taken an important decision to build the Kartarpur corridor to enable the countrymen to easily travel to the holy site. Addressing the nation in the golden jubilee episode of the radio programme, he said that Mann Ki Baat is not about the government but about the society. “When ‘Mann Ki Baat’ was started , I had firmly decided that it would not carry anything political, or any praise of the Government, and it wouldn’t be about Modi. Honestly speaking, Mann Ki Baat carries my voice but the examples, emotions and spirit represent my countrymen.”Modi said that one of the findings of a lexical analysis done of all the episodes of Mann Ki Baat, was that the radio programme has remained apolitical. “Mann Ki Baat addresses an aspirational India, an ambitious India. Politics or Political Power is not intrinsic to the Indian ethos; on the contrary social values and society are. In fact, Politics is one of the numerous other aspects of social life. Making politics an all pervasive, powerful factor is not an effective way for a healthy society,” he added. The Prime Minister, also marked the 50th episode of Mann ki Baat, by remembering the achievements of the “luminaries” of the Constituent Assembly who gave India a comprehensive Constitution in less than 3 years. “The extraordinary pace at which they drafted the Constitution is an example of time management and productivity to emulate even today.,” he said. He also remembered the “pivotal role” played by Baba Sahab Ambedkar, whose death anniversary falls on December 6, in the Constituent Assembly. Referring to the recent celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev Jayanti on November 23, Modi said that the government has taken a significant decision of building Kartarpur corridor to enable Indian pilgrims to easily visit the sacred site in Pakistan.
