In the last edition of the programme, PM Modi had recalled the 'black night' of Emergency imposed 39 years back in 1975 by the then PM Indira Gandhi and had asserted that democracy was India's strength.
He had added that the 'shining example of democratic powers of a common citizen' was seen during Emergency and that 'it should keep reminding the nation again and again'.
"Sometimes some people mock at my 'Mann Ki Baat' programme and even criticise it. This is possible because we are committed to democracy... Today when I am talking to you on June 26, we should not forget that our strength is democracy, our strength is people's strength and our strength is every citizen. We have to take this commitment further and strengthen it," he had said, as per PTI.
At the same time, PM Modi had asked people to declare their undisclosed income by September 30.
