In 'Mann ki Baat', the Prime Minister shares his thoughts with the nation. The programme aims to deliver the Prime Minister's voice to the general masses of the country since television connection is still not available everywhere, especially in the rural regions of remote locations.
The first edition of the programme was aired on October 3, 2014.
The United States President Barack Obama was also a part of the January edition of 'Mann ki Baat'.
In the last edition on April 26, Prime Minister Modi had shared concerns over the devastating earthquake in Nepal and pledged India's whole -hearted assistance to the neighbouring country.
The programme has generated an encouraging response from citizens across the country. It is simultaneously broadcast live on all channels of All India Radio and Doordarshan.
