Dehradun, June 28 (ANI): Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat on Sunday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi must respond to critical issues concerning the nation and added that the common man will decide whether the policies have been properly implemented by the Centre.
“It is a good thing that Prime Minister Modi is sharing his thoughts on ‘Mann ki Baat’. I don’t see any issue in it. But we work for the common people, so we have to know their ‘Mann ki Baat’. I believe that the Prime Minister shares his thoughts on ‘Mann ki Baat’ based on the policies of his government but whether these policies are being rightly implemented or not, that is for the common man to decide,” Rawat told ANI here.
Rawat further said that Prime Minister Modi has failed to deliver the tall claims that he had promised to the nation in the run up to the Lok Sabha elections.
“He [Prime Minister] was elected by the people so that he can bring about changes in the nation but no changes have happened yet. He had made some tall claims. For instance, he gave brooms in the hands of the countrymen through his ‘Swachh Bharat’ mission but in the new budget, the funds allocated for the programme have been cut down. He made people do yoga on one particular day, yet no one has any idea about the roadmap for the same. He needs to answer these issues,” said Rawat.
In his ‘Mann ki Baat’ programme on All India Radio earlier, Prime Minister Modi called for making ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ a mass movement in the country.
Expressing concern over the declining child sex ratio, he said the situation particularly in Haryana is very grave.
He lauded Sunil Jaglan, the sarpanch of Bibipur village in Haryana, for taking initiative and posing a selfie with his daughter. The Prime Minister urged all fathers to follow Jaglan’s example and post selfie with their daughters on social media #selfiewithdaughter.
He also complimented all countrymen for overwhelming participation and making the International Yoga Day on June 21 a grand success. (ANI)
