PM Narendra Modi Mann Ki Baat Today Live Updates: Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation through his monthly radio broadcast ‘Mann ki Baat’. This comes a day after he addressed a gathering in Bahrain and was conferred the highest civilian award by the King of Bahrain.

Focusing on the upcoming 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, Modi asked people to participate in cleanliness drives and ban the use of single-use plastic. He also hailed the photo exhibition of the leader put up at the India Pavillion of the Venice Biennale. He spoke of various environmental challenges faced by the country at this point and urged his listeners for compassion, not just conservation.

Shedding people’s doubts about how Modi was able to communicate and understand Bear Grylls in his ‘Man vs. Wild’ episode, he lauded technology for making it happen through a cordless device in Grylls ear. He concluded the episode by asking people to pitch in their suggestions, and said, "Let’s make the India which was dreamt of by our freedom fighters and realise Gandhi’s dreams."
