In the final episode of the monthly radio broadcast Mann Ki Baat in 2017, Prime Minister Narendra Modi specifically targeted the youth and the millennials – those born on January 1, 2000, onwards — and told them to get registered as voters and use their right to vote in every election.Calling them ‘New India Voters’, he exhorted them to cast their votes saying it will prove to be the ‘bedrock of New India’. The Prime Minister has been regularly dwelling on his concept of New India, which he had outlined in 2016.In his address to the party’s MPs during the parliamentary meet on December 20, after a tough Gujarat election, PM Modi had asked them to rope in the youth and millennials, who would soon be ready to vote. Referring to the robust social media campaign of the Congress, he had told the MPs to get active and engage with the millennials on social media, which they understand the best.”The 1st of January, 2018…in my view, is a special day… People born in the year 2000 or later; those born in the 21st century, will gradually begin to become eligible voters from the 1st of January, 2018. The Indian Democracy welcomes the voters of the 21st century, the ‘New India Voters’. I congratulate our youth & urge them to register themselves as voters. The entire nation is eager to welcome you as voters of the 21st century. As voters of this century, you too must be feeling proud,” said PM Modi.Referring to them as “My New India Youth”, the PM asked them to come forward and deliberate on how this New India — free from the poison of casteism, communalism, terrorism and corruption; free from filth and poverty — would be formed.Referring to #Positive India, using which he earlier had asked people to share their positive experiences, PM Modi listed feedbacks which spoke on how various government schemes had improved their lives. One feedback spoke about the glory of surgical strikes and the valour in Doklam.The PM also announced proudly that on this Republic Day, leaders of all ten ASEAN countries would be coming to India as chief guests.”But 26th January, 2018, will especially be remembered through the ages. This is unprecedented in India’s history… ASEAN completed its 50 years of formation in 2017 and in 2017, 25 years of India’s partnership with ASEAN was completed. On 26th January, the arrival of great leaders of 10 nations of the world as a unit is a matter of pride for all Indians,” the PM said.
