11:24 am: Coming 26th January, let us all make efforts to ensure that statues of great personalities and the surrounding areas are kept clean.
11:23 am: If 125 crore people of the country march dutifully, then they can create history.
11:20 am: We are marking the 125th birth anniversary of Dr. Babasaheb Ambekdar. The debates in Parliament were very rich.

11:18 am: Subsidy is reaching bank accounts directly under the world’s biggest ‘Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme’.
11:17 am: We started ‘Sugamya Bharat Campaign. Under this, we would improve both, physical and virtual infrastructure, to make it more ‘Divyaang- friendly’.
11:15 am: If there is a deficiency in someone’s body, we call that person as disabled. But the god has endowed that person with some extra ability. Then a thought came to my mind that instead of Viklaang (disabled), why should we not use the word Divyaang for them.
