Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged people to contribute in nation-building by doing social work. Citing examples of social work done by people across the country, Modi said, "We should identify them and join them in becoming a social work preacher."
In his Mann Ki Baat radio address, Modi talked about Jamuna Mani Singh, a social worker in Odisha who prepared the people of a malaria-infested-village to fight the deadly disease.
He said, "Jamuna Mani Singh with her full dedication and extra ordinary efforts prepared the people in her village to fight malaria. She spread awareness about precautions and helped the entire village during tough times."
Modi said differently-able people are a source of inspiration and their determination and courage is remarkable.
