NEW DELHI: Even as the Modi Government is marking completion of one year in office, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) has organised a talkathon with three union ministers as part of its initiative to highlight the achievements of the Government.

In the first Talkathon of its kind, Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani,  Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy minister Piyush Goyal, and Commerce and Industry minister Nirmala Sitharaman will be participating for a duration of 90 minutes on 30 May from 6 pm onwards. The programme would be live from National Media Centre, New Delhi.

Talkathon is an initiative by the New Media Wing of the MIB, which connects the virtual space with the physical world. Under the platform, participants in the social media space can post questions on Twitter, which would be answered by the guests. The users can use the hashtag #AskYourGovt to post their queries to the Twitter handle of the Ministry @MIB_India. 

The speakers will reply to the queries posted on Twitter, in real time. The event will be webcast LIVE on MIB's YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/inbministry),pib.nic.inindia.gov.inwww.youtube.com/DDNewsofficial and DD News.

This is the third edition of the Talkathon. It was introduced at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) 2014 followed by Talkathon with Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu after the Rail Budget. The last edition of the Talkathon was with Finance, Corporate Affairs and MIB minister Arun Jaitley soon after he presented the Budget on 28 February. The latter was especially successful with the hashtag #AskFM trending at Number 1 on Twitter. 

The current edition of Talkathon is a collaborative effort of the New Media Wing, Press Information Bureau and Doordarshan News under the aegis of the MIB.
