Dump VIP culture, embrace 'EPI', says Modi


Soon after the Union Cabinet chose to ban red beacons on VIP cars, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said people must also move away from the mindset of VIP culture.

Modi said the beacon ban will come into force from Monday, May 1, 2017 to revamp the country's so-called VIP culture that had its deep roots in India's colonial era when the British rulers instilled obesance with the VIP culture among the local Indians. EPI means every person is important. "Then we will have the collective power to fulfil our dreams and aspirations", the Prime Minister said.

He stated, "In our country, an atmosphere of disrespect towards VIP culture is long existed".

"The red beacon used to be fixed atop a vehicle but slowly and steadily it permeated into the psyche and got firmly entrenched in the mindset".

Decision to do away with beacons of all kinds atop of all categories of vehicles in the country was taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi last month. "Removing the red beacon is just part of the system but we need to make conscious efforts to weed out this culture from our minds", Modi said.

As part of his push for digital payments, Mr. Modi showcased a scheme of cash rewards for those encouraging others to use the government's Bharat Interface for Money (BHIM) app for transactions.

The Russian broke early in the second set, too, and then again for a 4-2 lead. Bouchard called Sharapova a cheater, saying, "I don't think that's right".

'If the Prime Minister thinks that every Indian is important, he should start by giving jobs to young Indians which he had promised.

In this manner, getting 20 odd people to make use of BHIM App for transacting business will make a person make Rs 200 a day. "On May 5, India will launch the South Asia Satellite". "There should be cooperation of our neighbours and there should be development of our neighbours too", he said.

Describing it as a "priceless gift" from India, Modi said the project is a significant step towards promoting cooperation with the entire South Asia.

The nations participating in the project are India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives and Afghanistan. Modi expressed his views during "Mann Ki Baat", a monthly radio program through which he communicates with the people of India.

Observing that climate change was no more confined to the academic world, Modi said "nature has changed the rules of the game".

He spoke about saving the birds and animals from this heat by adopting a humane approach.
