While addressing the nation in the 13th edition of his 'Mann Ki Baat' program, Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised Tamil Nadu for their leading endeavors in this regard while praising the other states for their initiatives towards the cause.
Asserting that organ donation is an important issue, Prime Minister Modi said, "Some girls from Kerala asked me to talk about organ donation. Organ donation is an important issue. The need for kidneys, heart and livers is high but less number of transplants happen."
The 13th edition of 'Mann Ki Baat' faced some hurdles after the Congress called for a ban on the Prime Minister's program.
Congress leader Rashid Alvi said, "Every month the Prime Minister does his Mann Ki Baat, but he remains a mute spectator to other important issues. Prime Minister Modi is losing his credibility in the country and the people are not ready to hear his program anymore. When his voice comes on the radio, people switch off their radios."
