NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed the 93rd edition of his monthly radio programme Mann Ki Baat, wherein he paid tribute to Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay and announced that Chandigarh airport will be named after Shaheed Bhagat Singh, as a tribute to the great freedom fighter.
Here are the key points from his speech:
Tribute to Deen Dayal Upadhyay
“Today, September 25, is celebrated as the birthday of Deendayal Upadhyay ji. He was a brilliant humanist, thinker and great son of the country. He taught us how Indian philosophy can guide the world even in the modern, social and political perspective.”
“He awakened our intellectual consciousness by freeing us from the inferiority complex that prevailed in the country after independence.”
Chandigarh airport to be renamed
“As a tribute to the great freedom fighter, it has been decided that the Chandigarh airport will now be named after Shaheed Bhagat Singh.”
Emphasis on Vocal for Local
“On the occasion of Bapu’s birth anniversary on the 2nd of October, we have to take a pledge to intensify ‘Vocal for Local’. Through our resolution of this campaign, we now include our local artisans, craftsmen and traders in the joy of festivals.”
“During the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, we are onwards with the goal of a self-reliant India. It will be a true tribute to freedom fighters. That’s why I request you to break all the records this time to buy these products of Khadi, handloom or handicrafts.”
Importance of Indian Sign Language
On September 23, many school courses have also been launched in Sign Language. A lot of emphasis has also been given in the National Education Policy to maintain a fixed standard for Sign Language
“Pooja ji, who hails from Haryana, is very happy with the Indian Sign Language. Earlier she was not able to communicate with her son, but after going through Sign Language training in 2018, the lives of both mother and son have become easier.”
“Manju ji of Kerala has also benefited a lot from these efforts. She is not able to hear since birth. Not only that, this has been the situation in lives of her parents as well. In such a situation, sign language has become a means of communication for the whole family.”
“For years, there were no clear standards for Sign Language. To overcome these difficulties, Indian Sign Language Research and Training Center was established in 2015. Since then numerous efforts have been taken to spread awareness about Indian Sign Language.”
