New Delhi: Citizens who do not have access to internet and social media can write letters offering suggestions related to various issues, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday.
Addressing the nation in his second "Mann Ki Baat" radio address, he said he had been told that many people don't have access to e-mail, Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites.
"Citizens who have suggestions related to 'Mann Ki Baat' and want to write to me can write letters at Mann Ki Baat, Akashwani, Sansad Marg, New Delhi. The letters will reach me," Modi said.
"All such letters will be considered seriously as they are proof people are concerned about issues related to the country," he said.
On Clean India campaign Modi said that it is important to think positively about the nation and the cleanliness campaign is already having some effect.The Swachh Bharat campaign is a positive move. A man wrote to me, saying when he was travelling by train, he saw people collecting their garbage instead of throwing it around. I am glad that people have decided to keep their country, their surroundings clean," PM Modi said in 'Mann ki Baat'.But the reason of the change is that the people, the youth care about change. "The youth of the nation wants to do something and are doing things," he said.
A week after his appeal to people to buy khadi, khadi sales have gone up by 125%, Modi said.
"The last time, I urged people to purchase khadi. I have been told that khadi sales have increased by almost 125 per cent," he said.
