In his first Mann Ki Baat radio programme after winning a second term, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stressed on the importance of water conservation.

In three requests to the public, PM Modi appealed to all Indians, including eminent people from all walks of life, to create awareness on water conservation, share knowledge of traditional methods of water conservation, and share information on individuals or NGOs working on water.  

He also said that there is no fixed way to conserve water, but different methods may be adopted in different places. However, he underlined that end goal is to save every drop of water.  

“I wrote a letter to Gram Pradhans on the importance of water conservation and how to take steps to create awareness on the subject across rural India,” the Prime Minister said. He also said that he was happy to see greater awareness on water conservation.
