New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will resume his monthly radio interaction, Mann Ki Baat, with the people of the country on 30 June. The programme will be the first after Modi returned to power for the second consecutive term in the recently concluded General Elections.
Taking the first step towards the resumption of the radio programme, Modi has asked people to send suggestions for the new edition of Mann Ki Baat. He has also tweeted seeking suggestions for the monthly programme.
Modi had taken to the radio programme to talk about non-political issues such as women empowerment, India’s achievement in different spheres, water and environment conservation, and culture and tourism in India.
Interestingly, soon after PM Modi made his announcement about the interaction, he received suggestions to talk about violence against doctors that has led to nationwide protests.
Some of the other suggestions received for the radio programme include tree plantation, growing unemployment in the country, and banning of plastic bags. People have also suggested a new policy on providing health and life insurance for vehicle drivers.
Nationwide awareness programme against wastage of food, rain water harvesting, crime against women, agrarian crisis, and inclusion of defence services-related studies in school curriculum were some of the other suggestions received by Modi.
