I never wanted to be a politician: PM Modi


Prime Minister Narendra Modi is addressed the 59th edition of his monthly radio program ”Mann Ki Baat”. The Prime Minister had asked people to share their ideas for the program. The prime minister celebrated NCC Day on the program and shared his experiences as a former cadet.

During the conversation answering one of the cadets, PM Modi said, “..Every child goes through multiple phases in life. Sometimes one wants to become this, sometimes one wants to become that, but it is true that I never had the desire to enter politics, nor I ever thought about it.”

PM Modi “Friends, this is something I really like about the Man Ki Baat program. The love and sense of entitlement with which my young friends complain to me, instruct me or give suggestions to me – I really am gladdened by them. Shveta Ji, you have raised this issue at an opportune time. Exams are around the corner. So like every other year, we need to discuss examinations. And you are right, that this program needs to be scheduled a bit earlier.”

After the last exam interaction, many people have written in with suggestions to make it more effective. Some have even complained that it was held too close to the date of the exam. And Shweta is right that I should conduct it in the month of January,” the PM said.

“The HRD ministry and the MyGov team are jointly working on it. It will be my endeavor to hold this discussion on exams in the beginning or middle of January. In his concluding remark, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stressed that there is a need to banish the fear of examinations collectively. “I want to see my young friends smiling during examinations, their parents should be stress-free, and teachers should be assured.”
