New Delhi, 11 September(Wishav Warta): A person has no right to chant Vande Mataram if he does not care about cleanliness and disrespects women, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday as he urged people to fight against social evils. In one of his best motivating speeches, the Prime Minister underlined the need for social changes and said, “follow the rule and India will rule” during a students’ convention marking the 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda’s Chicago address and Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya’s centenary.
“People often say Vande Mataram. But we should ask ourselves, do we respect women? I know it will hurt many people but do we have the right to say it? Think 50 times if we have the right,” he said.
“We chew paan and then spit on Mother India and then can we say Vande Mataram? Throw all waste on Mother India and then say Vande Mataram?” asked Modi.
He said people have no right to make the country dirty whether or not they are cleaning it and that sanitation workers have the first right to hail Mother India.
