Patna: During the 40th broadcast of his 'Man ki Baat' on radio, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday showered praise on the Nitish government for organizing world's longest human chain in support of the eradication of child marriage and dowry system from Bihar.
"It is highly commendable what the Bihar government is doing about spreading awareness about evils of dowry and child marriage system by organizing human chain across the state. The Indian society can be strengthened only through efforts like these," the Prime Minister said in his radio broadcast that was heard by people across the state including Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi and other party leaders who had gathered to hear the Prime Minister speak at the party's state Headquarters in Patna.
The PM urged all Biharis to rise and fight against all social ills to build a new India where people were treated equally regardless of their caste or religion.
"I greatly appreciate the efforts of the Chief Minister of Bihar, the state government, and the people of Bihar for this initiative that would go a long way in rebuilding a stronger nation," the PM said.
Speaking on the occasion, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi said that the NDA only believed in doing its work and nothing else.
"At the Center, the Narendra Modi government is busy working for the welfare of the people of India and in Bihar, the NDA is doing the same thing. If people want to see India a corruption-free nation, they should come forward to strength the NDA," he said.
Modi also thanked the PM for appreciating the work done by the NDA administration in Bihar.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
