PM Modi, President Obama to share their 'Mann Ki Baat' today

New Delhi: The joint radio address of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Barack Obama has been recorded and will be broadcast at 8 pm on Tuesday.

PM Modi tweeted this on Monday along with a photograph showing him with Obama with a caption: "Sharing our 'Mann Ki Baat' during the recording of the radio programme. Tune in on 27th January at 8 PM IST for the special episode! #MannKiBaat #Radio #USA #India."

PM Modi has been addressing the nation over radio every month since October last through the Mann Ki Baat programme.

Reflecting the growing Indo-US ties, Obama decided to join Modi in the monthly address during his ongoing three-day visit.

The Prime Minister, while making the announcement on January 22, said, "This month's 'Mann Ki Baat' episode will be a special one, where our Republic Day guest @BarackObama & I will share our thoughts together."

He had invited questions from the public, saying, "'Mann Ki Baat' with President @BarackObama will not be complete without your participation! Send your Qs till the 25th, using #AskObamaModi...AskObamaModi & be a part of this memorable 'Mann Ki Baat' programme, illustrating a special bond between India &USA."

Significantly, when Modi visited the US in September last year, he and Obama had written a joint Op-Ed in a major American daily.
