The US president will get an opportunity to address the people of world’s largest democracy. After joint write up in a major newspaper in September last year, Barack Obama and Narendra Modi will jointly speak to the people of India in a radio programme.
Modi will go on air along with Obama on January 27 and share their thoughts on ‘Mann ki baat’ programme on AIR (All India Radio).
The prime minister has been addressing the nation over radio every month since October last year through the ‘Mann ki Baat’ programme.
The programme is aimed at making fellow Indians recognise their inherent abilities and draw out workable suggestions that would contribute to nation-building.
