New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the nation on Sunday through his monthly radio show ‘Mann Ki Baat’, aired at 11 AM. The youtube channels of the ministry of information and broadcasting, the Prime Minister’s Office and All India Radio will broadcast the show live.
Earlier in the 30th edition of Mann Ki Baat on March 26, PM Modi had remembered national heroes Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru and had said they were not scared of death. While defining New India as the change in mindsets, the PM had said that the New India manifests the strength and skills of 125 crore Indians, who will create a Bhavya and Divya Bharat. He had also hailed the people of India for extending support to the movement towards digital transactions, saying people of India have rejected corruption and black money.
The radio programme was started with an aim to reach out to people in remote corners of the country. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also urged the people to share their ideas for the programme on the MyGov Open Forum.
Reacting to one of the editions of ‘Mann Ki Baat’ during the Assembly elections, Uttarakhand Congress had accused the Prime Minister of violation the Model Code of Conduct while calling the broadcast as “abuse of power”.
Missed call can also be given by listeners on 1922 to hear the Mann Ki Baat episode on mobile phones. Soon after the Hindi broadcast, Akashwani will also broadcast the programme in regional languages. Regional language versions of the programme will also be repeated at 8 PM.
