NEW DELHI: The Government has made it clear that the prime minister Narendra Modi’s monthly ‘Mann ki Baat’ broadcast does not cover any public policy or announcements.

The minister of state for information and broadcasting Rajyavardhan Rathore said in the Parliament that “Mann Ki Baat is a unique initiative of the prime minister to reach across to the masses through the Radio and connect with the common man on regular basis, inform them about the initiatives of the Government and seek their support in nation building and governance”.

He added that through this programme the Prime Minister has directly shared his concerns on issues affecting citizens of the country like cleanliness, saving the girl child, welfare of Divyangs, uprooting the menace of drugs and road rage etc. It also provides the listener an opportunity to suggest topics and issues faced by the common man and thus become a part of participative governance.

The prime minister has now made the broadcast for 26 months.

All India Radio has commenced the regional language broadcast of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Mann ki Baat’ immediately after the Hindi broadcast is over.

AIR Director General Fayyaz Sheheryar told Indiantelevision.com's sister concern Radioandmusic.com that this will be in addition to the broadcast on regional kendras that comes at 8.00 pm on the last Sunday of the month when the Prime Minister makes his broadcast. He said that AIR had advertised before this broadcast that listeners can catch the broadcast on the entire AIR network including medium wave and FM Gold and FM Rainbow.

In addition, the broadcast is carried live on Doordarshan National, DD News, DD Bharati, DD India and DD Kisan.    

The broadcast can also be heard on the AIR Mobile App ‘All India Radio Live’ on Android, IOS and Windows and also give a missed call on 1922 to listen to the broadcast.

It is streamed live by pmonradio.nic.in, allindiaradio.gov.in, newsonair.nic.in, and youtube/user/akashvaniair.

It is also available free to all private television channels and FM channels. Letters can be sent on MyGov.in, and NarendraModi App.
