Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar has appealed to people to listen to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Mann Ki Baat programme and also encourage others to do so.
“There is perhaps no other Prime Minister who communicates with the people as a family member and a well wisher every month. I appeal to the people to listen to ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme and encourage others as it is a unique programme to ensure the participation of the people towards nation building,” Javadekar tweeted in Hindi.
The Prime Minister had signed off the last episode of the infamous radio programme in February ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
The Prime Minister had expressed confidence about the victory of the saffron party in the elections and had said that the radio programme would resume after the polls were done and the results were declared.
The ‘Mann ki Baat’ radio programme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi will resume from June 30.
Ahead of the programme, Modi has asked people to send suggestions for the new edition of Mann Ki Baat. He has also tweeted seeking suggestions for the monthly programme.
The Prime Minister had taken to the radio programme to talk about non-political issues such as women empowerment, India’s achievement in different spheres, water and environment conservation, and culture and tourism in India.
Nationwide awareness programme against wastage of food, rain water harvesting, crime against women, agrarian crisis, tree plantation, growing unemployment in the country, banning of plastic bags and inclusion of defence services-related studies in school curriculum were some of the suggestions received by Modi. People have also suggested a new policy on providing health and life insurance for vehicle drivers.
