Bhubaneswar/New Delhi; Nov. 29: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today praised an ASHA worker Jamuna Mani Singh from Odisha's Baleswar district for her fight against Malaria in her locality during the 14th edition of his monthly radio programme 'Mann Ki Baat'.

"We have a network of ASHA workers in our country. Neither I nor you would have hardly heard or talked about ASHA workers. We had conferred Padma Bhusan to Bill and Melinda Gates last year for their contribution to social work through their Foundation. The duo heaps praise on the ASHA workers for their hard work and dedication towards their work. One such ASHA worker serves in a small Odisha village called Tendagaon, malaria infested region. Jamuna Mani Singh has resolved not to allow a single malaria related death in the village. I honor all Asha workers through Jamuna Muni," said PM Modi.

"Jamuna Mani Singh with her full dedication and extra ordinary efforts prepared the people in her village to fight malaria. She spread awareness about precautions and helped the entire village during tough times," he said.

Recently Odisha government felicitated ASHA worker Jamuna Mani Singh in a special function, PM added.

In his near 30-minute address,PM Modi talked on a host of issues, including clean energy, energy conservation, Mudra Yojna and climate change.
