Bargarh: The Odisha unit of BJP broadcasted Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’ in all the 270 booths of bypoll-bound Bijepur Assembly constituency in the district here on Sunday.
Union minister Dharmendra Pradhan and many senior BJP leaders including Jay Narayan Mishra and Ashok Panigrahi were present in the booth at Bijepur and listened to the radio address with the party workers.
In the 39th edition of the Mann Ki Baat programme, the Prime Minister shared his thoughts with a focus on young India and the need to blur the religious boundaries to unite for a better India.
New India, he said, is one that offers equal opportunity to everyone to fulfil their dreams and aspirations and is free of casteism, communalism, terrorism and corruption. The guiding force of this New India, he said, will be “Peace, Unity and Goodwill”.
Addressing the nation on the last radio address of the year, PM Modi said, “Tomorrow, January 1, is special. We welcome those born in the 21st Century to the democratic system as they will become eligible voters”.
“January 26, 2018, will be special. The leaders of all ten ASEAN countries would be the chief guest for our Republic Day celebrations. Such a thing has never happened before in the history of India. It is a matter of joy for the Indians,” said PM Modi.
Meanwhile, the state ruling-BJD said that BJP’s move will not have any effect neither in Bijepur nor anywhere in Odisha.
