Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday addressed the nation through the 16th edition of his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme.

In earlier episodes, Modi had shared his thoughts on a range of issues including drug addiction, farmers problems, menace of corruption, declining sex ratio and high rate of casualties in road accidents.

Here are the highlights of his address:

# This is the first Mann ki Baat of 2016

# Mann Ki Baat has bound me with you so effectively that I feel the urge to discuss every thought that crosses my mind.

# If the entire nation observes silence every 30th January at 11 am, you can imagine the energy that single moment will generate.

# We observed silence yesterday (Saturday) as a mark of respect to our brave martyrs.

# Sardar Patel said India’s independence is in ‘Khadi’, India’s civilisation represents ‘Khadi’

# ‘Khadi’ has become a symbol. It has now become a centre of interest of nation’s youth

# ‘Khadi’ has the power to provide employment to crores of people

# The experiment of associating spinning wheel with solar energy has been a success

# Many people have written to me telling me about major changes that solar ‘charkha’ (spinning wheel) has brought in their lives

# I congratulate Haryana for its social transformation

# I want to express my greetings to Haryana, as there has been a rapid increase in birth rate of girl child in the state

# A lot is said in our country in the name of farmers, but I don’t want to get involved in the controversy

# Let us integrate as many farmers as possible with the crop insurance scheme

# The only way to provide relief to distressed farmers is crop insurance scheme

# I have seen that these days local residents, artists are decorating railway stations with artistic designs

# ‘Swachhata’ is now linked with ‘Saundraya’.This was neither a railways initiative nor mine. This is an initiative by citizens

# It’s a proud moment for us that India is hosting International fleet review 2016 at Visakhapatnam

# At the eastern end of India, in Guwahati, there will be a SAARC sports event

# India’s maritime history has been golden
