New Delhi, March 28 (IANS): For the first time since India went into the lockdown mode in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will present his monthly radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’ on Sunday. Taking to Twitter, he sought ideas for the Sunday’s Radio programme, “On the 29th (March), this month’s #MannKiBaat will take place.
Would love to hear your suggestions for the programme. Dial 1800-11-7800 to record your message. Or, share your inputs on MyGov and the NaMo App,” the Prime Minister tweeted. It’s widely believed that Modi will talk on health, hygiene and India’s war on coronavirus that has affected 873 and killed 19.
