Mann Ki Baat: Centre will build 5 lakh farming pools in rural areas, says Narendra Modi

PM Narendra Modi, in his monthly radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’, said that the government is constructing 5 lakh ‘farming pools’ to tackle the problem of water shortage in some parts of India.

He also asked the farming community to reduce the use of fertilisers and adopt water conservation methods like building small water reservoirs. During the 30-minute programme he spoke about India hosting the FIFA Under-17 World Cup football tournament next year and said it is a great opportunity for branding the country at the international level, for which immense awareness needs to be created within the nation. 

Mann Ki Baat:

Mann Ki Baat is an Indian radio programme hosted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in which he addresses the people of the nation on radio, DD National and DD News. In 15 addresses of Mann ki Baat broadcast so far, more than 61,000 ideas have been received on the website and 1.43 lakh audio have been received. Each month, some selected calls become a part of the broadcast.

The Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, is usually expected to address the nation every month on All India Radio. Having officially started on and from October 3, 2014, the programme aims to deliver the Prime Minister’s voice to the general masses of India. Since television connection is still not available everywhere in India, especially in the isolated, rural and less developed regions, radio was chosen to be the medium for the programme, owing to its wider reach.
