New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing the nation in his monthly’s radio broadcast “Mann Ki Baat” on Sunday said that the mega preparations are underway for Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary. He also urged the women of the country to form ‘Ladies Club’ and perform an activity of service.
“Preparations are underway for a mega festival in India. Not just in India, it is a part of the discourse in the whole world. I’m referring to the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Gandhi served the communities in South Africa that were bearing the brunt of apartheid. He served mill workers who were being underpaid,” he said.
“There could be a Ladies’ club! Routine tasks of a modern-day Ladies’ club shall be taken up, but besides that, let all members of the Ladies’ club come together and perform an activity of service! We can do a lot,” Prime Minister said.
