In Bharat Ki Baat, Sabke Saath Modi Interacts with Global Audience

Bharat Ki Baat, Sabke Saath was a globally telecast live event from the Central Hall Westminster in London in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with participants across the World in the evening of April 18, 2018 during his recent visit to UK. According to Europe India Forum, the organisers of Bharat Ki Baat, Sabke Saath Indian Prime Minister addressed people of all nationalities and backgrounds as questions poured in on social media from far and wide from the North Pole to New Zealand and Saudi Arabia to San Francisco.

Narendra Modi on his first visit as India’s Prime Minister to United Kingdom (UK) had hailed India’s “Special Relationship” with the UK as he addressed a Wembley Stadium rally on 13 November 2015 late in the evening as per IST, at an event marking Indian diaspora’s contribution to the UK, where he had received a rapturous welcome from the 60000-strong crowd as he arrived on stage with the then UK Prime Minister David Cameron.

At Bharat Ki Baat, Sabke Saath Modi said, “रेलवे स्टेशन मेरे जीवन का स्वर्णिम पृष्ठ जिसने मुझे जीना और जूझना सिखाया” (My life at the Railway Station was like a golden page that taught me to go through the struggles). The person in the Royal Palace in London is the Sevak (Servant) of 125 crore Indians. He also took questions from the participants. Following are the highlights from his interaction with the participants:

  • India is getting increasingly aspirational: ‘Besabri’ is not a bad thing. If a person has a cycle, person aspires for a scooter. If a person has a scooter, person aspires for a car. It is nature to aspire.
  • जिस पल संतोष का भाव पैदा हो जाता है, जीवन फिर आगे नहीं बढ़ता। हर आयु, हर युग में कुछ न कुछ नया पाने को गति देता है|
  • जज्बा होना सबसे ज़रूरी है… मुझे ख़ुशी है कि आज सवा सौ करोड़ लोगों के मन में एक उमंग, आशा और संकल्प का भाव है और लोग मुझसे अपेक्षा कर रहे हैं|
  • Yes, people have more expectations from us because they know that we can deliver. People know that when they say something, the Government will listen and do it.
  • लोगों की मुझसे अपेक्षा इसलिए है कि उन्हें विश्वास है कि हम करके जरूर दिखाएंगे|
  • बेसब्री मेरे लिए ऊर्जा है और जब आप‘सर्वजन हिताय, सर्वजन सुखाय’ के संकल्प को लेकर चलते हैं तो निराशा की बात ही नहीं उठती|
  • ‘तब और अब’ में जमीन आसमान का अंतर क्योंकि जब नीति स्पष्ट हो, नीयत साफ़ हो, और इरादे नेक हों तो उसी व्यवस्था के साथ आप इच्छित परिणाम ले सकते हैं|
  • During the freedom struggle Mahatma Gandhi did something very different. He turned the freedom struggle into a mass movement. He told every person that whatever you are doing will contribute to India’s freedom.
  • Today the need of the hour is to make development a mass movement
  • Participative democracy makes good governance possible
  • लोकतंत्र कोई कॉन्ट्रैक्ट एग्रीमेंट नहीं, ये भागीदारी का काम; जनता-जनार्दन की ताकत बहुत होती है और उन पर जितना भरोसा होगा, उसके परिणाम देखने को मिलेंगे|
  • Look back at India’s history. India has never desired anyone else’s territory. During World War 1 and 2 we had no stake but our soldiers took part in the Wars. These were big sacrifices. Look at our role in UN Peacekeeping Forces
  • We believe in peace. But we will not tolerate those who like to export terror. We will give back strong answers and in the language they understand. Terrorism will never be accepted
  • Those who like exporting terror, I want to tell them that India has changed and their antics will not be tolerated
  • I do not need to read books to understand poverty. I have lived in poverty, I know what it is to be poor and belong to the backward sections of society. I want to work for the poor, the marginalised and the downtrodden.
  • 18,000 villages did not have electricity. So many women do not have access to toilets. These realities of our nation did not let me sleep. I was determined to bring about a positive change in the lives of India’s poor
  • I am like any common citizen. And, I also have drawbacks like normal people do
  • मेरी पूँजी है– कठोर परिश्रम, प्रमाणिकता और सवा सौ करोड़ लोगों का प्यार|
  • मैंने देशवासियों को भरोसा दिलाया था कि मैं गलतियाँ कर सकता हूँ लेकिन गलत इरादे से कोई काम नहीं करूँगा|
  • We have a million problems but we have a billion people who can solve them
  • देश में वेलनेस सेंटर हो या प्रिवेंटिव हेल्थकेयर हो, हम हर भारतीय के स्वास्थ्य के लिए काम कर रहे हैं|
  • हम एक ऐसा इको-सिस्टम बना रहे हैं जहाँ सभी के लिए अवसर हो|
  • आज हम किसान कल्याण के लिए काम कर रहे हैं चाहे वो2022 तक कृषि से होने वाली आय को दोगुनी करनी हो, यूरिया की आसान उपलब्धता हो या यूरिया की नीम-कोटिंग हो, हम एक निश्चित लक्ष्य के साथ आगे बढ़ रहे हैं|
  • चाहे कोई पैरामीटर हो, देश के लिए अच्छा करने में हमने कोई कमी नहीं रखी है|
  • आज हम आर्टिफिसियल इंटेलिजेंस के युग में जी रहे हैं और हम टेक्नोलॉजी से अलग नहीं रह सकते|
  • What prevented Indian Prime Ministers from going to Israel? Yes, I will go to Israel and I will even go to Palestine. I will further cooperation with Saudi Arabia and for the energy needs of India I will also engage with Iran
  • भारत आँख झुकाकर या आँख उठाकर नहीं बल्कि आँख मिला कर बात करने में विश्वास करता है|
  • Surgical strike was a reply to Pakistan in its own language, an answer to the exporters of terrorism, which sent a message (to Pakistan) that India has changed and their antics will never be tolerated. “I am proud of my soldiers. The soldiers executed the surgical strike without making a single mistake and with 100% perfection. And they returned before sunrise.”
  • Democracy cannot succeed without constructive criticism. I want this Government to be criticised. Criticism makes democracy strong. My problem is not against criticism. To criticise, one has to research and find proper facts. Sadly, it does not happen now. What happens instead is allegations
  • इतिहास में नाम अंकित करना मेरा लक्ष्य नहीं, मैं उसी तरह जैसे मेरे सवा सौ करोड़ देशवासी|
    I was not born with an aim to be in history books. I am just like you all, a common citizen of India.
  • I request you all- remember our country and not Modi.
