New Delhi (India), Jan 20 (ANI): Ahead of the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged booth level workers of Maharashtra and South Goa to prepare an alphabetical list of government schemes and reach out to the people with songs in regional languages on the same.
"Prepare a list of the schemes floated by the Central government and the Maharashtra government on 1-100 or alphabetically from A to Z. Like A for Ayushman Bharat, B for Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, C for Clean Ganga Mission and so on that can be easily recalled and remembered," said Prime Minister Modi to booth workers from Hatkanangale, Kolhapur, Madha, Satara and South Goa via video conference.
He also requested the BJP workers to prepare separate lists for all the state and Centre's schemes regarding farmers, women, and others and tell people about the benefits and the beneficiaries.
During the interaction, the Prime Minister showed participants a video of an improvised version of the song 'Breathless' sung by Shankar Mahadevan, with lyrics made based on the Centre's schemes.
The Prime Minister then urged party cadre to make songs along these lines in local dialect to popularise the schemes run by central and the state governments.
"Make songs in local languages that should have all the schemes of government in it. I will tweet it," he said.
During the interaction, Prime Minister Modi lauded the spirit of ailing Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar and extended wishes for his wellbeing.
"I pray that my dear friend Manohar Ji, popular chief minister of Goa and architect of modern Goa, recovers soon. He is working even in this condition and his passion towards work is inspirational for us," the Prime Minister said. (ANI)
