GN Bureau | January 22, 2015




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.

Through his radio broadcast the PM believes that governance is not the task of the government alone, and everyone should be engaged in the endeavour.

In a series of tweets, prime minister’s official twitter handle has invited questions on #AskObamaModi.

‘Mann Ki Baat’ with President @BarackObama will not be complete without your participation! Send your Qs till the 25th, using #AskObamaModi,” the Prime Minister tweeted.

 


Questions can also be posted on ‘MyGov’ website t.co/9UqUsdnzXT

During his radio interactions Modi has raised the issue of cleanliness, drug addiction, education. He also answers questions and reads out suggestions which people ask him over letters and social networking sites.
