PM to give message to the nation Saturday

Saturday December 31, 2011 12:07:31 PM, IANS

New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will deliver a message to the nation later Saturday, a prime minister's aide said.

He will however not address the nation. His message will be released in the form of a statement from his office on New Year's eve, the aide said.

The message is likely to spell out the future direction of the government and its policy priorities mid-way through his second five-year term that ends in 2014.

Later, the prime minister, accompanied by his wife Gursharan Kaur, is scheduled to leave for Amritsasr.

With his government having faced a tough year politically, the prime minister wants to usher in the new year with prayers at the Harmandar Sahib, the holiest of Sikh shrines, popularly known as the Golden Temple.

A similar message to the nation, in form of "musings", was used by Manmohan Singh's predecessor, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, to spell out his thoughts on issues of the day at the yearend.
