Making a reference to the terrorist attack on Indian Army base in Uri on his monthly radio address Mann Ki Baat, Prime Minister said that perpetrators of these attacks will be punished for sure.
“There is anger in the country. The perpetrators of these attacks will be punished for sure. We have full confidence in Indian Army and are proud of them. While politicians speak, military shows bravery. We are proud of our army,” said PM
Speaking on the second anniversary of the radio program, Prime Minister talked about the people of Jammu & Kashmir and said people want their life to get back on track and they have started to recognise elements that oppose our country.
“I appreciate the efforts by young Harshvardhan. He wrote to me after the attacks, said he was troubled by the attack. He said he will study three extra hours, become an ideal citizen and serve the nation,” said PM
Prime Minister also spoke of the issues mentioned by citizens on his ‘Narendra Modi App’ and said that many have urged him to talk about Paralympics where India had registered remarkable records by winning medals.
“These medal winners like Deepa Malik and Devendra Jhajharia have made the whole country proud. I came to know that some of these paralympians equalled and sometimes broke the records held by normal athletes. I want to tell the country through the ‘Mann ki Baat’ that my government will empower these paralympians,” said Modi.
