New India will be free from poison of casteism, communalism: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses a felicitation function before the party's parliamentary board meeting in New Delhi

- People born in 21st century will gradually begin to become eligible voters from 1st of January, 2018. "Indian Democracy welcomes these new voters", he said.

In his last Mann Ki Baat address of the year, he suggested a "mock Parliament" be organised around August 15 in Delhi, comprising young representatives selected from every district to deliberate on how a New India could be formed in the next five years. "It can transform our nation". The guiding force of this New India, he said, will be "Peace, Unity and Goodwill". Modi said, "Many good wishes to all of you for the new year 2018".

"First of all I am grateful to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji for mentioning me in today's "Mann Ki Baat".

He also talked about organising mock parliaments for the youth.

Calling them the "New India Youth", PM Modi said they will form the basis of new India, which will be free of evils like corruption, casteism, corruption and terrorism. The movement, he said, will be to make a strong and capable India.




Modi urged citizens to organise Mock Parliaments in every district of India. He said that a person full of enthusiasm can overcome all hurdles.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday showered praises on Jammu and Kashmir's Anjum Bashir Khan for cracking the Kashmir Civil Service exam this year.

The PM said that "Swachh Survekshan 2018" will be carried out from January 4 to March 10 next year to evaluate the cleanliness of India's urban areas. "It should be our constant endeavor that our women also get equal rights and equal opportunities just like men get so that they can proceed simultaneously on the path of progress", the Prime Minister added. He said that he noticed a Muslim woman can not go for Haj without a male guardian.

"Recently, I came to know of the inspiring story of Anjum Bashir Khan Khattak. This practice is not followed in numerous Islamic countries", he said.

"Almost 1300 Muslim women, from Kerala to North India, have applied to travel on Haj without a male guardian after we have scrapped that rule".
