PM Modi calls for replacing VIP with EPI- Every person is important

Calling on the need to shun VIP culture, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that the concept behind 'New India' is that EPI (Every person is important) and that it should replace VIP culture. "Removing red beacons on the car is one thing. We are ensuring the VIP culture is removed from the minds of the select few 'VIPs.' New India is not about VIP. It is about EPI- every person is important," the Prime Minister said. The Prime Minister was addressing the nation in the 31st edition of his maiden radio programme 'Mann ki Baat.' The government has announced scrapping of red beacons from May1st onwards.
