New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday that a year of Mann Ki Baat radio programme had been very enriching for him.

Today was the twelfth episode of the radio programme.

The PM posted on the micro-blogging site Twitter: “Today's #MannKiBaat was the 12th episode, thus completing a year of a programme that has been extremely enriching.”

Ahead of Bihar Assembly polls, PM Modi today pitched for greater voter turnout in elections and particularly urged the youth to enrol as voters and exercise their franchise.

In his monthly programme on radio, he also appreciated the role of the Election Commission in creating awareness among people about their electoral rights and enrolling voters in greater numbers by evolving various programmes.

Modi did not mention the upcoming Bihar polls but was generally responding to a suggestion by a phone-in caller on greater enrolment of youth as voters.

He emphasised that it was essential for everybody to register as voters and "definitely" exercise franchise.

Recalling his slogan 'pehle matdaan, fir jalpaan (first vote, then eat), Modi said exercising franchise is "noble work" and everyone should do it, as per PTI.

He said in a democracy, every voter is a dispenser of destiny and every person should ensure that their "priceless right" of being a voter is still intact by checking the electoral roll.

At the same time, the PM also spoke about a number of other issues, including those he had highlighted during the previous episodes like giving up of LPG subsidy, Swacch Bharat campaign, promotion of khadi besides paying tributes to soldiers on the 50th anniversary of 1965 India-Pak war.
