Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal plans to take on prime minister Narendra Modi’s mass media outreach programme ‘Mann ki baat’ on All India Radio by launching his online web telecasting portal - www.talktoak.com.

 
The difference between the shows of Modi and Kejriwal is explicit – while the former holds a monologue on the state radio, the later would communicate directly with people online and through mobile phones.
 
Kejriwal’s programme, to be launched on July 17 from Delhi secretariat, is being managed by a private-public relations firm that has been hired for beefing up the image of chief minister by the Delhi government recently.
 
Named as ‘Talk to AK’, the telecast would see people asking questions to the Delhi chief minister online, through SMS or phone call.  
Bollywood singer and music producer Vishal Dadhlani will host the show.
 
The live streaming will also be done on the Facebook page of Talk To AK and on the Youtube channel of the Delhi government.
 
As per the plans, Kejriwal will answer all the queries. He will also take up live calls and can also be approached through Twitter and Facebook.
 
Earlier in 2014, Kejriwal had tried to launch a direct public interaction with people after his party’s maiden electoral performance in Delhi in which it had gained second position. Kejriwal had then headed a government for 49 days before submitting resignation. 
 
PM Modi’s ‘Mann Ki Baat’ is a monthly radio programme started in October 2014.
