In his first 'Mann Ki Baat' radio programme after coming to power for the second time, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed to all citizens of the country to conserve water. The prime minister made three requests. First, he appealed to all Indians, including eminent people from all walks of life, to create awareness on water conservation. Second, share knowledge of traditional methods of water conservation. Third, if you know about any individuals or NGOs working on water, do share about them.
PM Modi further said, "There is no fixed way to conserve water. In different parts, different methods may be adopted but the aim is same- to conserve every drop of water."
He said that over the last few months, so many people have written about water-related issues. "I am happy to see greater awareness on water conservation."
"I wrote a letter to Gram Pradhans on the importance of water conservation and how to take steps to create awareness on the subject across rural India," he said.
PM Modi also requested everyone to read books and talk about them on his 'Narendra Modi Mobile App'. "It is my request to you all- please devote some time to reading. I urge you all to talk about the books you read, on the 'Narendra Modi Mobile App.' Let us have discussions on the good books we read and why we liked the books."

The prime minister recalled that that sometime back he was gifted a collection of short stories by Premchand. Sometime back, someone presented me a collection of short stories of the great Premchand. I once again got an opportunity to revisit those stories. The human element and compassion stands out in his words."
Talking about the Lok Sabha elections, PM Modi said, "India just completed the largest ever election. The scale of the election was immense. It tells us about the faith people have in our democracy. The scale of our electoral process makes every Indian proud."
