PM Modi appreciates various BJP Morchas for their paramount role in connecting directly with people and furthering the party’s reach
Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya’s Antyodaya is the BJP guiding principle: PM Modi
Congress humiliated Dr. Ambedkar; they did not even confer Bharat Ratna on him: PM Modi
In 2015, NDA Government strengthened the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act: PM Modi
Congress involved in vote-bank politics, they did not let OBC Commission get Constitutional status: PM Modi

In his interaction with the SC/ST, OBC, Minority and Slum Morcha of the Karnataka BJP through the ‘Narendra Modi Mobile App’, the Prime Minister said that they had a paramount role in connecting directly with people and furthering the party’s reach. Noting that the BJP had the maximum number of MPs from the SC, ST, OBC and minorities communities, he appreciated them for their efforts.

Stating that the BJP’s guiding principle was that of Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya’s Antyodaya, he urged the members to further the reach of the party’s initiatives among the weaker sections. Remembering Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar, Shri Modi remarked that welfare of each and every community was the BJP’s commitment.

Shri Modi also highlighted Jyotiba Phule’s contribution to fight social injustice with two weapons- education sand women empowerment. Referring to Kabir Das and Ravidas, he said that their efforts to fight social injustice were inspirational and continues to show us the way.

Prime Minister Modi attacked the Congress for humiliating Dr. Ambedkar stating that until they were in power, they did not even confer Bharat Ratna to Dr. Ambedkar. Prime Minister Modi also stated that the BJP was working on developing Panchteerth of Baba Saheb Ambedkar. “Taking inspiration from all the great saints, today we are trying to fulfill Baba Saheb's dream of powerful and prosperous nation”, he remarked.

PM Modi also took questions from the SC/ST, OBC and Slum Morcha and spoke at length about several welfare measures being undertaken to uplift them.

Highlighting several initiatives being undertaken by the BJP-led NDA Government at Centre, Shri Modi said that in 2015 the Government strengthened the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act and increased the offences listed in the Act from 22 to 47 to empower the weaker sections. He said that Stand up and Mudra Yojanas were helping to make SC/ST, OBC and women financially empowered.

Attacking the Congress for not letting the OBC Commission a Constitutional Status in Parliament, he said that they were only involved in vote-bank politics and never cared about empowering the weaker sections.

Shri Modi also spoke about how India was rapidly growing. He mentioned that under the NDA Government, India was the second largest steel manufacturer in the world, second largest mobile phone manufacturer and fourth largest automobile manufacturer. He also noted several initiatives being undertaken by the Centre like Smart Cities, Amrut and connecting the waterways.

PM witnesses the historic “Commencement of Core Loading” at India’s first indigenous Fast Breeder Reactor (500 MWe) at Kalpakkam, Tamil Nadu
March 04, 2024
Upon completion of the core loading, the first approach to criticality will be achieved, leading to generation of power subsequently
In spirit of Aatmanirbhar Bharat, PFBR is indigenously designed and constructed by BHAVINI with contribution from more than 200 Indian industries including MSMEs
India’s nuclear power program is aimed to meet the twin goals of energy security and sustainable development

In a historic milestone marking entry into the vital second stage of India’s three stage nuclear program, Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi witnessed today, commencement of “Core Loading” at India’s first indigenous Fast Breeder Reactor (500 MWe) at Kalpakkam, Tamil Nadu.

The Hon’ble Prime Minister took a tour of the Reactor Vault and the Control Room of the Reactor. He was briefed about the salient features of this reactor.

India has developed comprehensive capabilities spanning the entire spectrum of the nuclear fuel cycle. Government had approved in 2003, the creation of Bhartiya Nabhikiya Vidyut Nigam Ltd (BHAVINI) to construct and operate India’s most advanced nuclear reactor-Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR).

In line with the true spirit of Aatmanirbhar Bharat, PFBR has been fully designed and constructed indigenously by BHAVINI with significant contribution from more than 200 Indian industries including MSMEs. Once commissioned, India will only be the second country after Russia to have commercial operating Fast Breeder Reactor.

The Fast Breeder Reactor (FBR) will initially use the Uranium-Plutonium Mixed Oxide (MOX) fuel. The Uranium-238 “blanket” surrounding the fuel core will undergo nuclear transmutation to produce more fuel, thus earning the name ‘Breeder’. The use of Throium-232, which in itself is not a fissile material, as a blanket is also envisaged in this stage. By transmutation, Thorium will create fissile Uranium-233 which will be used as fuel in the third stage. FBR is thus a stepping stone for the third stage of the program paving the way for the eventual full utilization of India’s abundant thorium reserves.

In terms of safety, the PFBR is an advanced third generation reactor with inherent passive safety features ensuring a prompt and safe shut down of the plant in the event of an emergency. Since it uses the spent fuel from the first stage, FBR also offers great advantage in terms of significant reduction in nuclear waste generated, thereby avoiding the need for large geological disposal facilities.

Upon completion of the core loading, the first approach to criticality will be achieved, leading to generation of power subsequently.

Notably, despite the advanced technology involved, both the capital cost and the per unit electricity cost is comparable to other nuclear and conventional power plants.

The growth of the Indian nuclear power program is imperative to meet the twin goals of energy security and sustainable development. As a responsible nuclear power with advanced technology, India remains committed to expand peaceful applications of nuclear technology, both in power and non-power sector, while ensuring the security of nuclear and radiological materials.
