LIVE: I understand no one wants to break rules, PM Modi at Mann Ki Baat
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Sunday, addressed the citizens of India through his monthly radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’, for the second time this year. Earlier in the day PM Modi had called this episode of Mann Ki Baat as ‘Special’, and added, “don’t say I didn’t tell you in advance.”
What make this episode of ‘Mann ki Baat’ so special is that after the horrific Pulwama attack, this is the first time PM Modi addressed the Nation and it was also the last live broadcast of this row as during March-April India will witness its Lok Sabha Elections and due to imposition of Election Code of conduct no such programs could be aired. The PM will next be able to connect to his followers via this show from May.
Today’s #MannKiBaat is special! Do tune in at 11 AM.
Later on don’t say I didn’t tell you in advance 🙂 pic.twitter.com/LT8N5Mkyev
