Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation with the first Mann Ki Baat of this year. PM Modi expressed shock over the insult to the tricolor on Republic Day by the protesting farmers. Prime Minister Modi sends across a message of peace to fellow citizens. He further stated that we have to fill the coming days with hope and novelty. However, Prime Minister Modi's words on the insult that was borne to Tiranga has sparked a political war of words now, with the opposition targeting PM Modi over his association with RSS. Congress loyalist Digvijaya Singh has tweeted and asked PM Modi about his association with RSS, which did not hoist the Tiranga till few years after the Independence.
