Mann ki Baat

Since taking over the reins of Central government in 2014, Prime Minister rendra Modi started interacting with the people over a radio programme med 'Maan ki Baat'. The said programme has, in fact, touched the common people, as radio being the cheapest mode of communication, is easily affordable by all sections of people.

This interactive radio programme has benefited masses as they have come to know about the aims and objectives of the government, and that too from the Prime Minister's mouth. But this interaction has not gone down well with a few opportunistic political leaders as they often crack jokes of the radio programme.

The newly selected AICC president and self-proclaimed champion of the downtrodden Rahul Gandhi is one of the bitter critics of the said programme, claiming that the programme has no vision. Only time will tell whether Maan kI Baat has touched the common masses or not. The person born with silver spoon in his mouth is in fact lacking in vision and wisdom!

Good move

The decision of the rendra Modi led Central government to abolish Haj subsidy is a welcome move. Every year crores and crores of public money is spent in the me of Haj subsidy. That money could easily be used for some developmental activities of the minority community like health, education, women empowerment, etc.

Following a religion is one’s own persol matter and there is no point in spending such humongous amount on it. The Muslim community in India is lacking in many things and the prime among them is education. The literacy rate of girls in the Muslim community is very low. A country cannot progress unless all sections of the people make progress. Lastly, I would also like to say that the Haj subsidy is big business for a particular section of people who make big bucks annually during the Haj period.
