On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation on his monthly radio-broadcast, Mann Ki Baat. He said that new India is a dream of 125 crore Indians.
He added, "New India is not a government scheme or a matter of politics. It manifests the strength of each and every Indian, who will together create a Bhavya Bharat. It is the essence of the emotions of the 125 crore Indians wanting to come together and create a magnificent India."
PM Modi said, "Working women will now be given maternity leave of 26 weeks, instead of the earlier 12 weeks, for their pregnancy and delivery. The basic aim is to ensure proper care of the newborn, the future citizen of India, from the time of birth."
