  • Here is what the PM said during the third edition of the Mann Ki Baat:
  • When a youngster gets addicted to drugs, we consider him or her bad. But drugs are bad not the youngsters.
  • Drug addiction is a psycho-socio-medical problem.
  • Drugs brings three things, namely, Darkness, Destruction and Devastation.
  • I want to thank the media for taking initiatives on fighting drugs.
  • Have you ever thought where the money that you spend for your drugs go? It may fund terrorists who kill our soldiers. We can not help terrorists and drug mafia.
  • Neither is drug cool nor a style statement.
  • Bad habits don't start suddenly. Parents should study those changes happening and can save the children: PM
  • Have the courage to say no to drugs and also ask your friends to do the same.
  • PM urges celebrities, NGOs and people from all walks of life to spread awareness against the use of drugs.
  • The letters I got about drug abuse are both inspiring and saddening.
  • Children leave their homes and go to hostels for good education. There too this problem can happen.
  • Let's start a movement with #DrugFreeIndia on social media. This can become a means of 'Lok Shiksha'.
  • The UN's decision to declare June 21 as International Day of Yoga is a matter of great pride for India.
  • Met the Indian Team that won the Blind Cricket World Cup. I salute their enthusiasm.
  • A few days ago, the Jammu and Kashmir cricket team defeated Mumbai in Mumbai. Win or less is not important but the fact that the players from the state which witnessed a natural disaster recently displayed such a gritty effort proves that one can overcome difficulty if he has a will.
  • The UN's decision to declare June 21 as International Day of Yoga is a matter of great pride for India.
