PM Modi addresses last Mann Ki Baat of 2020, farmers bang thalis to drown out his radio address at protest sites

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday addressed the nation in last edition of his radio programme Mann Ki Baat. Prime minister’s address came amid raging protests by the farmers against three contentious farm laws. The protesting farmers banged thalis at Singh Border, Farikot and Rahtak in a bid to drown out Mann Ki Baat.

The request for Thali Bajao protest was made by Swaraj India chief Yogendra Yadav. He had said farmers should give out the message that they were tired of listening to to prime minister’s Mann Ki Baat and ask the government when it will listen to their Mann ki Baat. He added that thalis will be banged during the address so that noise of Mann Ki Baat does not reach them.

The prime minister had floated the idea of banging thalis during the initial phases of lockdown in order to appreciate efforts of frontline and healthcare workers in dealing with the pandemic. During the last radio address of the year, the PM applauded the nation once again for coming together to applaud the corona warriors. He said people have learnt new lessons from the challenges triggered by the pandemic. He said we saw a new spirit among the people. We saw the spirit of Aatmanirbhar Bharat in 2020.

Referring to the letters written by people, he said they have  paid tributes to the spirit of 130 crore Indians. During the address, the prime minister said local manufactures should focus on making world-class products at a time when vocal for local is reverberating in each and every household.

The prime minister also shared a good news with the viewers in the last edition of Mann Ki Baat. He said between 2014-18 the number of leopards has risen by more than 60%. He added that in the past few years, the population of lions in India has also increased in addition to the forest cover.
