New Delhi [India], Mar. 26 (ANI): Extending his greetings on Cheti Chand and Samvatsar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asked the Brahma Kumaris to spread the use of digital transactions. He praised Brahma Kumar and Kumaris by saying that they have spread the message of India's rich culture throughout the world. "Dadi Janki continues to inspire the society. In our culture, the 80th anniversary is a very special occasion. Last year, Dadi Janki Ji completed 100 years. She is a true Karma Yogi and she continues to serve society," Prime Minister Modi said while addressing the 80th anniversary celebrations of Brahma Kumaris via video conferencing. He also talked about the way in which Brahma Kumaris have taken forward the reach of solar energy actively. "India has always said there God is one. There may be different forms of worshiping God. The way Brahma Kumaris family have taken forward the reach of solar energy actively is commendable. By 2030, India aims to generate 40 percent energy from non-fossil fuels. By 2022, our aim is to ensure 175 GW of clean energy," he added. He said the use of digital transactions would bring down corruption. "About Rs. 11,000 crore has been saved by the use of LED bulbs. Brahma Kumaris organisation can help spread this message. Exploitation of nature is a crime for us, we believe in milking of nature. Urge Brahma Kumaris family, Central and State departments to come up with plans to ensure proper nutrition," the Prime Minister added. The Prime Minister took the opportunity to inform the people that his government has amended the Maternity Bill and this will benefit working women as leaves have been enhanced from 12 to 26 weeks.
